Today, asbestos removal is considered essential before demolition or renovation projects. Before you begin your task, consult O’Reilly Brothers for asbestos removal in Ottawa.
Asbestos was once a common building material. But over time, as asbestos fibres crumbled, they turned into fine, inhalable particles. These particles posed significant health risks for those who lived and worked nearby. Some vermiculite insulation may also contain asbestos.
If you are planning to renovate an old structure, you may want to schedule an asbestos testing. The following are why you should let our professionals help you with asbestos removal:
• HARMS YOUR HEALTH
Fibres from this material are extremely harmful. Exposure to this substance can lead to a number of serious health conditions (asbestosis, mesothelioma, and lung cancer).
• WIDELY PRESENT
Many commercial and residential buildings contain massive amounts of asbestos. One needs to have both expertise and experience to handle hazardous materials on that scale.
• ASBESTOS REMOVAL REQUIRED BY LAW
In some cases, removal of this substance is a requirement by law. For instance, if you plan to move into an old building, you need to perform an asbestos inspection. If its presence is detected, you will have to get the area cleaned before you move in.
If you work in construction or a similar industry, you may encounter asbestos occasionally. Before you call for asbestos removal from your Ottawa property,learn more about where it can be found:

The Abatement Process
If you suspect the presence of asbestos in your building, contact O’Reilly Brothers, a licensed abatement provider. We perform a full inspection of your property and ensure your safety as well as that of our crew. Our procedure includes:
We also refer to these options as Type I, II, or III removal. The abatement we choose depends on how much asbestos we find on site, friable or non-friable, as well as the complexity of the job.
Once we seal the area to protect the public, we remove asbestos waste via doubled poly bags and take all bags off site for approved disposal. We ensure that your property is completely cleared of asbestos before we finish any job.. To learn more about the process, talk to our team of professionals.
Asbestos insulation was the biggest source of asbestos exposure for workers in the 20th century. It remains a toxic hazard to date. Many buildings once used asbestos-based insulation, mostly because of asbestos’ flame-retardant properties. So, after we remove asbestos-based insulation from your site, O’Reilly Brothers will help you choose appropriate replacement insulation.
We offer a variety of certified flame-retardant products, including polyurethane-based insulation. This product is UFFI-free and safe to use.
