Possible Risk of Asbestos in Toronto Home

We are doing a complete renovation of our home. Our contractor thinks there is asbestos on the vent wraps, pipes and old boiler. He told us we needed to get a DSR. What is that and what does it entail? Do you provide this report?

Hi Patrick!
 
Awesome Question!
 
A DSR or commonly known in the construction industry as a "DSS" (Designation Substance Survey) is very important to have when undergoing a construction project. It keeps you, your family and those working in the home safe.
These reports check to ensure that there is no hazardous substances in your property, such as asbestos. This requires an environmental company to come in, look over the property, and test any suspicious material. Once this is complete, you will be provided a very detailed report which goes over all their findings.
We do not perform these reports as it requires a certified member to complete as well as it is a conflict of interest for a restoration company to test and do the work.
We however have the best network nationwide of highly recommended environmentalist companies to perform these reports and inspections.
Once the report is done and if there are any hazardous materials such as asbestos, we can provide you with a free estimate on the removal and abatement.
Give us a call today and we can head you in the right direction!

Wow! Asbestos really is the silent killer!
Should I regularly be checking for asbestos in my home?

The main thing to remember with asbestos is if it has not been disturbed that it is not harmful to your health. However, if you notice the material starting to deteriorate than a certified asbestos company such as Canada's Restoration Services should be contacted for safe asbestos removal.

wow Stan! With everything I've been reading on this site about asbestos I'd say you're lucky to not have any major health issues. (assuming you got everything checked I mean) I hope everything worked out with the asbestos removal :)

Very helpful, we recently found asbestos in our pipes and boiler. Didn't realize until 5 years after we moved into our home!
