Asbestos & Mold Removal

Asbestos and Mold Removal

Asbestos Remediation

Any home constructed before 1980 has the potential for presence of asbestos. The most common forms of asbestos in homes are:

  • Attic Vermiculite
  • Hot water heating pipe insulation
  • Floor Tiles
  • Ceiling Tiles
  • Exterior Siding
  • Anti-Sweat Paper on Supply Air Ductwork
  • Around Ductwork Floor Penetrations

The risk associated with each of these materials will vary dramatically. The key factors contributing to risk are:

  • Location of material and potential for impact/disturbance
  • Condition of Material
  • Friability of Material: How easily it can be made into airborne particles/dust

In the Greater Sudbury Area,

  • Attics tested in the Sudbury area have typically shown asbestos content somewhere between zero (yes, many attics with vermiculite do not contain asbestos) and 0.7%. Ontario's threshold for asbestos content is 0.5%.
  • Asbestos is proven to be dangerous and, in certain instances, fatal to people if disturbed and inhaled in quantity
  • Reducing exposure certainly reduces risk

Mold Removal

If you have discovered mold in your home, it's important that you quickly take action to solve the problem. If left untreated, mold can spread quickly - often in as little as 48-72 hours. Once it spreads, it can lead to health problems for your entire family. Mold occurs around a water source, usually a leak of some kind. That's one of the reasons why we recommend proper insulation, as it fills in cracks that can lead to leaks. However, if you already have mold, the priority is removing it and preventing it from recurring.

For many homeowners, it's not uncommon for mold to be found in the attic. In fact, roughly 50% of all homes have mold in the attic, and yet, 95% of the time, that mold goes unnoticed. It is not surprising that mold is commonly found in attics. That is because condensation forms and builds up when hot air meets cold air. If not properly insulated, your attic provides the perfect environment for hot air and cold air to meet. That makes it the perfect breeding ground for mold.

If you've spotted mold in your home, contact the experts at Blouin Brothers Insulation. Our highly trained technicians will walk you through the mold removal process, and recommend the best course of action for your particular problem.
