First General Okanagan uses the most advanced equipment in the industry to clean up asbestos in your home.

If you live in a residence that was built prior to 1991 there is a good chance that it contains asbestos. For that reason, any building requiring demolition due to a claim will be tested for asbestos.

Asbestos is a naturally occurring material that was added to a lot of building materials from the 1950s to the 1990s. After further testing it was discovered to be extremely hazardous when inhaled or ingested.

Some of the most common containing materials include:

  • Linoleum
  • Vinyl floor tiles
  • Drywall mud and ceiling texture
  • Cement board
  • Vermiculite insulation
