Hiring a Hazardous Materials Abatement Company
Asbestos is the number one work-place killer in Canada.
The potential liabilities for building owners & General Contractors who hire the wrong abatement contractor including additional cleanup cost can be extensive and costly. Liability, additional costs, insurance, experience and performance are all things to consider when hiring an abatement contractor.

What is Asbestos?
Asbestos is used in many common building materials including sprayed on insulation, fireproofing and soundproofing, floor covering, plaster walls and ceilings, boiler and pipe insulation, attic insulation and all-in-all is known to be used in over 3000 building products. It has been used in and applied to structures everywhere and is used in schools, offices, warehouses, sport arenas, airport terminals, and many other private and public buildings & industrial facilities.
Millions of Canadians are endangering their health by breathing asbestos laden-air, often unaware of their daily contact. It has been known for over 70-years that asbestos is a carcinogen, a cancer causing agent creates fibrous changes and scarring in lung tissue. While the latency period for asbestos-induced lung cancer is 15-40 years or more, most victims die within two years of the first symptom. But lung cancer is not the only hazard associated with asbestos. Physicians are now seeing cancers caused by asbestos fibres that have migrated to other parts of the body.
The obvious solution is to render our collective environment as free from the dangers of asbestos as is possible.
From the first site inspection, to the final disposal of hazardous materials, Enviro-Vac can provide all service solutions associated with asbestos and hazardous materials abatement.
Enviro-Vac has established itself as one of the leading and most authoritive hazardous materials abatement contractors in Canada.
