Professional and safe asbestos removal services in Ottawa
Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous material that was a common building material used in the construction of thousands of homes, especially properties constructed before 1990. Asbestos may be present in areas like roofing, popcorn ceilings, vermiculite insulation, shingles, plaster and stucco, floor and ceiling tiles, among others.
Asbestos can remain safely in a building without harming the occupants if it remains undisturbed, however, asbestos materials have a crystalline structure that is prone to breaking down over time, releasing thousands of airborne fibres that can have serious health effects if inhaled.
Be safe from the risks of asbestos
Thinking about renovating your old home? Chances are, a number of the building structures you plan to renovate have asbestos materials present within them.
Unfortunately, asbestos identification is hard to perform for untrained professionals, which can have serious consequences for both you and the workers on your property if asbestos containing materials are disturbed without proper removal prior to renovating the home.
If you’re unsure about whether your home contains asbestos or not, contact Khans Corp’s fully insured and trained asbestos removal professionals for a full inspection of your Ottawa property today!

How is asbestos dangerous for my health?
Found in thousands of homes built during the 1950s to 1990s era, asbestos has been dubbed the “silent killer” due to the immense health risks it poses. Once disturbed, asbestos-containing materials release thousands of microscopic fibres into the air within your home.
Prolonged inhalation and exposure to asbestos can cause respiratory diseases like mesothelioma, lung cancer and significant lung tissue damage, and has been a leading cause of work-related deaths for workers in Canada.
