How to Select Asbestos Removal Services and Managing the project.

Selecting an Abatement Contractor
Ask your local Asbestos lab for contractor recommendations. Labs work closely with the local contractors and will know who does the best work.
Get 3 quotes from established companies. Often there is a one size fits all approach to quoting so ensure the work is customized to you and your specific project needs.

Managing the Project
For your own protection you will want to understand the process well enough to ensure work is being done safely and according to WorkSafeBC guidelines. You can ask the contractor to put in a viewing window so that the work area (containment) can be easily viewed (by Worksafebc or yourself). Ask for a copy of all documentation: Notice of Project, Safe Working Proceedures, Exposure Control Plans, Daily Air Monitoring Results and Final Clearances.

Results - Ensure the contractor has
a third party (Lab) conducting all air monitoring during work (required daily)
a third party (Lab) inspecting and writing your final clearances and reports

Third Party Checks and Balances:
Better Business Bureau - research company history issues/reviews etc.
WorkSafeBC - contact to ensure contractors are in good standing

"If you know what's there you can protect yourself," Ford said. "You can have it properly removed or you can change your renovation plans and actually not remove it."

Commercial flooring job in one of the heritage buildings downtown. Some of the asbestos vinyl tiles had been damaged with use over time and had become friable. We will contain the area and setup other safety equipment before removing the tiles and mastic (adhesive). http://www.haz-mat.ca/…/cost-of-asbestos-removal-per-squar…/
