Asbestos Insulation Removal
Whether you are buying or selling a property, doing renovations, or find a suspicious looking material in your home, Asbestos Insulation may be found.
If your home was built before the 1980’s, then there is a good chance that asbestos containing materials were used in either building or renovating (if home was built before the 1930’s) the property. Asbestos Insulation was so favourable due to its high fire retardant and excellent insulator characteristics. Unfortunately, the health hazards that came with using asbestos were not found until years later, which lead to serious health conditions to those that were exposed.

Where can Asbestos Insulation be found?
There are a couple main areas where asbestos insulation is typically found;
1. Attic Insulation & Wall Insulation
Asbestos Attic Insulation and Asbestos Wall Insulation are also known as “Vermiculite”. Vermiculite is the form of insulation that can contain asbestos, and one of the commonly found brands is Zonolite. If Vermiculite is found, it should be tested in order to know 100% if it does contain asbestos. There is no way, just but looking at the material with the human eye to know for sure.
What does Vermiculite look like?
Small, rock-like shaped material, that has a metalic shine to it.
2. Pipe Wrap Insulation / Duct Wrap Insulation
The other common area where asbestos insulation is found is wrapped around your pipes or duct work. With asbestos being a great fire retardant, it was perfect to use around the pipes and ducts to ensure there was no fire hazards when they were hot in temperature.
In relation to Asbestos Duct Wrap Insulation, the register vents are commonly affected as well. Even if the duct work does not have asbestos wrap, the vents may still (given the fact they could have been removed from a previous home owner, leaving the vents behind).

Asbestos Insulation Testing
There is no way to tell 100% if a material contains asbestos unless testing is performed. Asbestos is tiny fibres that are made up within a certain material and being analyzed in a laboratory is the only way to identify if it contains asbestos and what type.
At Canada’s Restoration Services, we work with the best 3rd party testing companies who can perform this testing. Give us a call today to schedule yours!
