Asbestos Inventory

Hazardous Materials Consultants in Kamloops, BC

Asbestos is a cancer and lung disease hazard. Once considered the miracle mineral, it was commonly added to building products due to its high tensile strength and resistance to heat and corrosion. Asbestos can be found in a large variety of building materials including: drywall (joint mud), attic insulation, roofing material, wall insulation (cinderblock), linoleum flooring, textured ceilings/walls and ceiling tiles.

When asbestos containing building materials are disturbed due to renovations or unforeseen events, the asbestos fibers within the building materials can become airborne, leaving the carcinogenic dust free-floating, where it can become inhaled by a renovation crew and/or any other building occupants.

The ABI Hazmat Corporation has over 20 years of direct experience dealing with asbestos issues in homes, schools, hospitals, commercial and industrial buildings. We work directly with concerned homeowners, buyers and sellers to conduct asbestos surveys and determine any issues for future renovations or demolition.

The ABI Hazmat Corporation has extensive experience working with general contractors and high profile clients to manage asbestos issues for hospital projects, school seismic upgrades and large hotel renovations.
