Asbestos Testing

Do you have Asbestos in your Home or Business?

If your house or business was built before 1990, asbestos could be present. Asbestos was commonly used in building materials for much of the 20th century because of its heat-resistant and insulating properties.

The mere presence of asbestos in your home is not hazardous. Generally, a material in good condition will not release asbestos fibers, but it may introduce a health hazard if disturbed in an uncontrolled way (without the expertise of asbestos professionals). When asbestos material has been damaged over time or is disturbed by renovations or repairs, it becomes a danger.

It's Best to Test!

Asbestos is classified as a human carcinogen. Inhaling asbestos fibers can lead to chronic, irreversible and life-threatening lung diseases. These diseases, including asbestosis (a lung scarring disease), lung cancer and mesothelioma, can appear several decades after exposure. Asbestos exposure is the No. 1 cause of occupational death in Canada. 

The only way to determine whether building materials contain asbestos is to have them tested. 


Prior to the start of a demolition or renovation project, speak to one of our asbestos experts about your renovation plans or home repairs. Based on the scope of the work, we can advise you as to what materials could contain asbestos and can collect samples for a third-party laboratory to analyze. If any of the samples come back as containing asbestos, Prairie Asbestos can provide you with a quote and removal plan, as well as coordinate with your contractor.
