Safe and Professional Asbestos Abatement Services in Ottawa


Asbestos is a harmful mineral that was commonly used in building materials in the past due to its fire-resistant and insulating properties. It can be found in various areas of your home, particularly in older buildings constructed before the 1980s. Places where asbestos may be present include insulation materials, such as attic and wall insulation, as well as in roofing, floor tiles, pipe insulation, and cement products. It is crucial to be aware of the potential risks associated with asbestos exposure, as inhaling its fibers can lead to serious health issues, including lung cancer and mesothelioma. To ensure the safety of your household, it is advisable to consult with professionals who specialize in asbestos testing and removal. Identifying and properly managing asbestos in your home can help safeguard your well-being and that of your loved ones.


How Much Is Asbestos Removal In Ottawa?

Not all asbestos removal companies in Ottawa will charge similarly. Some could charge a flat fee for small projects while others do so by the square foot.

A small asbestos removal job, which could begin at just $950, typically involves little cuts to a wall or surface where asbestos is found. These projects usually charge for the time it will take plus the cost of materials.

Other companies could assess the asbestos scope of a home or office for its cost. If it’s spread out everywhere — on the ceiling, walls, floor, basement, and attic — you could expect a flat fee that’s proportionate to how widely your space needs remediation.

Initial inspections or hazmat surveys can cost anywhere between $600 to $900. However, most homes built in the 1970s are likely to fall within the $1,000 to $2,000 range.

The costs get higher the larger the home or building is. Of course, the level of risk involved and if third-party consultants are needed will contribute to the overall price.

Below is a table that can give you a general idea of how much an asbestos-related service will cost.

About Asbestos

There are several fibrous minerals commonly known as asbestos. These minerals can be used to make products strong, long lasting and fire-resistant.

Before 1990, asbestos was mainly used for insulating buildings and homes against cold weather and noise. It was also used for fireproofing.

The manufacture, import, sale and use of products containing asbestos is prohibited in Canada.

However, asbestos may still be found in older building materials, such as:

  • house siding

  • cement and plaster

  • floor and ceiling tiles

  • roofing products, such as:

    • tar paper

    • shingles and felt

  • surface treatments, such as:

    • paint

    • putty

    • drywall

    • caulking

    • sealants

    • spackling

  • industrial furnaces and heating systems

  • insulation, including around hot water pipes and tanks

Some older automotive parts may contain asbestos, including:

  • vehicle transmission components, like clutches

  • car and truck brake pads

Asbestos fibers may also be released into drinking water.
