The Hidden Danger of Asbestos While Renovating Your House in Toronto

As a company (Cleanfirst restoration) that removes asbestos materials on a daily basis, we are shocked on how little information people actually have as they renovate or alter an older home despite all the efforts from government, municipality, and other institutions and regulations to inform everyone on the prevalence and danger of asbestos embedded materials in houses build prior to 1986.


Fact: if your house was build prior to 1986 in Toronto or Gta there is a very real possibility that some of the materials within will contain asbestos fibers.

Fact: Ontario regulation 278-05 dictates homeowner must provide contractor a designated substance report to identify hazardous materials within the property prior to renovating, like asbestos, lead, mercury etc… you get the point.

Not only for the safety of the contractor that might be removing unknowingly asbestos materials but also your safety, since contractor will leave after completion and you will get stuck breathing dangerous amounts of asbestos fibers without your knowledge.

Our employees at CleanFirst restoration are exposed to asbestos fibers all the time since we do the abatement and removal of asbestos materials but you and your contractor shouldn’t have to; that’s why we have regulations and guidelines that we must strictly follow to ensure the safety of everyone.

Regardless if you are a homeowner or a contractor no one should be exposed to this well documented cancer causing fiber like asbestos, no need to be diagnosed 14 years later with mesothelioma and try to recall where you were exposed to asbestos.

All of our asbestos workers are not only are certified but have to do annual exams for asbestos exposure follow the guidelines, perform meticulous work and have the right equipment to ensure our safety and the safety of the occupants, what about you? Are you ensuring your safety and your loved ones?

Calling for asbestos removal services after asbestos fibers has been spread throughout your renovation is the most expensive way of dealing with  Toronto asbestos removal since every area has to be now worked on instead of containing only the area that asbestos materials are present.

Removal of asbestos materials is actually very simple in most circumstances; you must contain the area, establish negative pressure and remove not only the materials but the dangerous fiber in the air without spreading it to other areas while remaining safe as you do the work.


Do yourself a favour, if you are planning on renovating or demolishing any property build prior to 1986, it is on your best interest to inform yourself by calling an asbestos removal company in Toronto or getting a designated substance report to ensure you don’t have asbestos on your property.
