These guys do all the inspections and monitoring required for asbestos removal. They ensure that the abatement guidelines are implemented and followed.
AP Solutions and Resources, Cascade Environmental Consulting Ltd., ESP HiTech Inc., and RH Services are the four of the consultants that we work with the most. There are many others who do this, to find them all you need to do is Google asbestos testing Edmonton.
These are places where we can take samples to be tested for mould or asbestos. We generally use Aspen IAQ Laboratories Ltd and ENVIRO-WORKS INC.
This is a test to ensure that our HEPA filtered equipment (air movers and vacuums) are doing their job effectively. They are normally performed at the work location before any removal of hazardous materials begins. We normally use Abatement Technologies and GN Supplies for this service.
