Asbestos FAQ's

When did they stop using asbestos?

If your home or building was built before 1987 materials should be tested for asbestos.

How do I know if a material contains asbestos?

You can’t tell by just looking at it. The material should be analysied using a specialized microscope. Do not attempt to take a sample yourself – a laboratory or an asbestos consultant can give you advise on how correctly take and send a sample.

I have asbestos do I have to remove it?

No, the materials are not dangerous if undisturbed and sealed.

What if I accidently disturbed the asbestos?

The safest way to manage any health risks is to wipe up any dust with a damp cloth. Put the cloths in two plastic bags that are tied up individually and dispose of properly.

The damaged material/or area should be sealed off as to not to release more fibres until a further assessment can be made.


Mould FAQ's

Where are moulds found?

Mould is virtually everywhere and can be indoors and outdoors. Mould is mainly found indoors in warm and humid conditions such as basements and showers. Outdoors mould can be found in decaying vegetation.

I found mould, how do I test it?

It is not necessary to identify the species of mould growing. If you are susceptible to mould there is a potential health risk therefore no matter what type of mould it is you should arrange to have it removed.

My landlord will not take responsibility for cleaning up the mould in my home?

If your property owner, landlord or builder is not responsive to your concerns you can contact your local board of health or housing authority.

What should I do if I think I am being exposed to mould?

First consult your doctor and determine the appropriate medical action to take.


Lead Paint FAQ's

How do I know if my home contains lead-based paint?

Paints made before 1950 contained large amounts of lead. If built after 1980 there is little concern about lead levels in the paint.

I have lead-based paint, now what?

Lead-based paint does not present a health hazard as long as it is not chipping or flaking. Removing it can often result in a more immediate health hazard than simply leaving the painted area intact.

How can I safely remove leaded paint?

For paint on doors and trims either remove professionally or outside in a well-ventilated area. Chemical strippers may be the best solution.
