It is illegal to store, sell, supply, import, export or even re-use any home improvement product with asbestos in Canada. But what is illegal now was not illegal ten years ago. That is why you must consider asbestos testing if you live in an age old Ottawa home. The process is quick and affordable. So you really have nothing to lose by calling an asbestos removal company. Remember it is all about ensuring you are not exposed to asbestos for long, something that can cause mesothelioma.
How to detect asbestos
You cannot tell asbestos by just looking at it. You have to hire an asbestos testing and removal service provider to conduct the test. Avoid the hyped asbestos testing kits marketed online. This is not because they do not work, but mainly because buying the kit means you will do asbestos testing on your own, something that is extremely dangerous. Asbestos testing should be done by asbestos removal experts in Ottawa with the right equipment which needless to say, includes protective clothing.
How to remove it
The process as hinted is not hard. But that does not mean in any way that any asbestos removal company can do the job. Take time to find the right service provider. Make sure the service provider you go for is licensed. Make sure too that it is experienced.
When to get worried
It is simple. Keep in touch with your doctor as soon as you notice your health dwindling. Common symptoms include difficulty in breathing, constant headaches and sometimes nausea. Keep in mind that your pets too could be affected.
