When renovation work is required in an area built before 1980 , the risk of materials containing asbestos is real. Benjel Consultant Chemists Inc. is regularly called upon to carry out sampling to evaluate the asbestos content to determine if asbestos removal work is required.
Benjel Consultant Chemists Inc. always seeks to provide professional service in the best interest of its clients. The optimal number of samples taken to create a building's asbestos register will be determined based on the scale of the site. Our project managers will be able to assess the risk associated with the presence of asbestos-containing materials (ACM).
This is what we recommend because an trained technician will collect samples in person and can testify about where it came from.Contact us to book

To get a quote from Benjel:
Vermiculite and the asbestos it contains have caused some fear among homeowners in recent years. Even if under certain conditions the presence of asbestos is not a cause for concern, the effects that this substance can cause on health should not be overlooked. It is in this perspective that the use of asbestos was definitively banned in 2018.
Even if the use of asbestos has been totally banned in the past, some products still contain it today, to mention only insulation or pipes. From now on, a regulation imposes the removal of asbestos from any construction. If you have any doubt about the presence of asbestos in your home, our technicians at Benjel can help you get rid of it.
As a reminder, asbestos was recognized as a carcinogen by the World Health Organization in 1987. Since 2011 in Canada, the extraction of this material has been completely stopped.
However, asbestos fibres are particularly dangerous for health. If you inhale them, they can accumulate in the lungs and lead to respiratory disorders, cancerous pathologies and lung diseases more or less serious. Hence the decision to ban the use of asbestos from the construction sector.
