Asbestos Abatement

Asbestos abatement is a highly regulated and specialized process. There are many facets to the handling of asbestos that present when dealing with asbestos abatement. This becomes even more complicated when asbestos and asbestos containing materials are exposed or disturbed as a result of mishap or disaster.

At ServiceMaster of Midland/Orillia, our technicians are qualified and fully trained asbestos abatement professionals.

Our services include assessments, surveying, air sampling and reporting on asbestos containing materials, including vermiculite. Our technicians will assess the risk, select the most appropriate method of managing the problem, and perform the abatement operation.

Our technicians will use a variety of techniques to complete your inspection and analysis. These techniques could include:

Air Sampling – this will indicate if you have an asbestos problem and determine its severity.

Materials Sampling – we will determine the source of the airborne asbestos and confirm it with independent laboratory analysis if required.

Assessment of Asbestos – sometimes removal isn’t your best option depending on the condition of the asbestos.

Services


Most products made today do not contain asbestos. Those few products made which still contain asbestos that could be inhaled are required to be labeled as such. However, until the 1970s, many types of building products and insulation materials contained asbestos.

  • Roofing and siding shingles
  • Wall and attic insulation
  • Textured paint, patching and joint compounds

We have used your service a few times here at the building or for personal reasons, each time you responded very quickly and were onsite as quickly as possible. I had a few emergencies and I just couldn't believe how quick and efficient you were; not only on the phone but onsite as well. I have never been treated with such courtesy and respect and I would recommend this company to everyone who would need this service.
