SOUTH SHORE ASBESTOS AND MOULD DECONTAMINATION

Asbestos

The most important consideration is a keen awareness of the risks posed by contact with asbestos. Breathing in asbestos fibres can cause many types of cancer or other diseases, all very debilitating.

But where exactly is asbestos found? Therein lies the problem: cement, plaster, insulation in buildings, floor and ceiling tiles, etc.

Are you planning to expand your living room, renovate your kitchen, or demolish a wall in your home? Be very careful and make sure to take the necessary precautions before starting any work!

The smartest approach is to order a laboratory test of samples you have collected. This will confirm whether your work can be done at no risk to your health, or whether you need to call on us. Asbestos professionals and experts are the key to effectively resolving the problem. We become involved if the analysis of your sample shows a concentration of asbestos exceeding 0.1%. Thoroughness and precautions are vital. We follow very specific asbestos removal protocols using equipment featuring the latest technology. Whether the risk is low, moderate or high, our commitment remains the same, with technical and safety specifications that apply to handling, drilling, removal and disposal of materials containing asbestos.

Mould

Moulds are natural organisms in the environment that can penetrate a building directly or in the form of spores suspended in the air.

Mouldis very harmful to humans. Inhalation of even very small amounts of mould particles can aggravate a disease, seriously affect some people’s health, weaken their immune system, cause allergies, or worse.

Where exactly does mould come from? Humidity is the source of the problem, which is why mould is often found in basements, kitchens or bathrooms.

With high humidity,moulds can spread anywhere and on any material. The most effective solution is to focus on reducing humidity levels. That’s where we can help you.

Mould decontamination involves a very special process! The following mistakes must be carefully avoided.

  • Use of a single product, which only keeps the mould in check, but doesn’t eliminate it
  • Application of paint over affected areas

Only professionals, who mechanically remove mould from surfaces, can ensure that it is permanently eliminated.

E-PUR uses a highly effective tool: adry ice blaster. This revolutionary method, which complies with IICRC protocols, provides deep penetration. Unlike traditional methods such as sanding, stripping or chemical cleaning, this unique approach is perfectly suited to living spaces because it poses no hazard to humans. Cryogenic cleaning eliminates mould from materials in confined spaces with poor access. Above all, it allows occupants to remain in the home throughout the process.
