Asbestos Inspections & Testing Montreal

Asbestos Inspections & Testing Montreal

In Quebec, any material found to contain 0.1% or greater content of asbestos fibres is considered to be hazardous. Should your home or commercial building contain asbestos, it is recommended that you contact a specialist for inspection. These materials, when left exposed or damaged, can cause severe health effects including mesothelioma and lung cancer. Asbestos poses health risks only when fibers are present in the air that people breathe.

Typically, asbestos is most commonly found in older homes or buildings (built until the 1980`s) that contain ACM’s (Asbestos Containing Materials). These materials can include things like tile, cement siding, plaster, sprayed fireproofing insulation, thermal pipe, boiler/furnace insulation and more. For a complete list of potential ACM’s, click here.

Asbestos Material Sampling

One of our professionals will come to your property and conduct a thorough visual inspection of any potentially contaminated areas or materials. Once the visual inspection is complete, we will take samples of affected materials and have them analysed by an accredited lab in accordance with method 244-2 of the Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail (IRSST). The results are professionally analyzed for type and percentage of asbestos present and then a detailed report is provided to you with suggestions on how to treat your property.

Asbestos Air Testing

Another asbestos testing method is to conduct air quality tests of your property. With a professional air quality test, our team will quickly identify if your home or commercial building contains asbestos fibres in the air. Testing is similar to material testing where air samples are sent to an accredited lab (Air sampling and fibre counting according to the IRSST 243-1 method). Once tested, you will receive a detailed breakdown of the contents of your air and suggestions on how to move forward.

Vermiculite Inspection and Testing

Some vermiculite insulation may contain asbestos fibres. These products can cause health risks if disturbed during maintenance, renovation or demolition. This type of insulation is often found behind floorboards or in an attic.

If you are concerned that your home may contain vermiculite-based insulation it is highly recommended to perform a test, particularly in relation to a property acquisition.
