Do you want to renovate a residence that was built before 1990? If so, it’s strongly recommended that you have all possible asbestos-containing materials characterized before starting the job. Whether it’s the plaster walls, ceramic tiles or vermiculite, a laboratory analysis of the samples taken will confirm whether the work you have planned can be carried out without risk to your health or if you need to use our services first.

A characterization is mandatory before undertaking any kind of work likely to emit asbestos dust. It’s always best to assume that materials contain asbestos until proven otherwise, which is why it’s important to consult professionals before starting any kind of work. If the microscopic analysis of the samples determines that the concentration of asbestos in the materials is greater than 0.1%, we strongly recommend using our services, since it’s important to act with diligence and rigour when removing and disposing of asbestos-containing materials.

At Cryotechnic, we use proven asbestos removal protocols and state-of-the-art equipment. We also work according to the procedures set out in the regulation respecting occupational health and safety and the Safety Code for the construction industry in Quebec. We know that only a rigorous approach will ensure quality results and peace of mind. Whether it’s for work performed in low, moderate or high-risk settings, we develop protocols associated with the safe handling, drilling, removal and disposal of asbestos-containing materials.
