Did You Know…?
The word asbestos is Greek and it means “unquenchable” or “indestructible.” A naturally occurring fibrous material with good insulating properties, it was a popular building material of choice from the 1950s-1990s. However, it wasn’t known until recent decades that asbestos fibres could be breathed in by the lungs and that prolonged asbestos exposure could lead to lung cancer and mesothelioma.
A Hazardous Materials Removal Expert
Asbestos is a hazardous material that should only be removed by a certified hazardous materials removal expert such as A.P. Hurley Emergency Services Inc. We provide asbestos abatement services to residential and commercial clients in Woodstock and surrounding areas.
We Don’t Handle Classification 3 Asbestos Removal
There are three general classifications of asbestos as defined by the Ministry of Labour. We try not to get involved with classification 3, which generally involves large-scale concentrations of asbestos fibres in the air that can pose a more serious health hazard for our technicians.
