Asbestos comprises of millions of microscopic fibers that create an excellent barrier to flames and high heat situations. It was considered the best possible product to fireproof residential homes and was used extensively in building materials. Asbestos was a benchmark and widely accepted building material, used in almost every part of the home or commercial building.
When older properties go through renovation, asbestos is commonly found in areas that have been untouched or not usually updated for visual or structural reasons. An airborne test for asbestos that comes back positive means that there could be remaining material from older installations or even the original build in typical areas such as:
Hazardous material found in these areas will significantly reduce air quality inside the property and will most likely create severe health problems for those exposed to asbestos dust. GTA property owners who suspect or detect asbestos should immediately hire experts to test for and perform asbestos removal in Oakville, Toronto, Mississauga and surrounding areas, to correct any toxic air quality issues and reverse any potential health and safety hazards within the property.
Asbestos is a highly toxic and hazardous material. Certified and experienced experts understand the historical ways asbestos was used and can test for the material with the latest and most accurate testing and diagnostic equipment.
In its day, asbestos and asbestos based material was the go to choice for builders and developers as the material was low cost, plentiful and had enhanced fireproofing properties. The long-term effects on humans makes asbestos use too risky, and the material has been banned from cities for many decades. Local homes or business spaces that are found to still have asbestos material must perform asbestos removal in Toronto immediately.
Asbestos dust and minute material can easily and continuously be consumed by humans inside the building and will cause severe health effects and problems that could be lethal. Substances that are banned may become a legal responsibility adding to the critical nature of asbestos removal.
If you suspect you have asbestos in your home, a professional inspection is necessary. Asbestos was processed into many forms during its use and cannot be visually detected. A certified and trained inspector will take samples of potential asbestos hotspots for detailed testing and analysis.
Areas that contain asbestos must be secured from the rest of the home as the removal process may spread microscopic asbestos fibers into the air. Proper sealing and venting of the area are critical for safe and thorough removal, and only trained professionals have the tools and methods to do the job safely and correctly. Demolition of the area must be executed so that materials are not broken down into smaller pieces as that could easily spread fibers into the air. All debris and material must be secured in sealed bags or containers to ensure the safe removal of the hazardous material.
A professional and experienced removal crew will have the latest processes, required safety equipment, and knowledge of all local regulations regarding handling asbestos material. Once cleared, areas are thoroughly cleaned with wet mops and HEPA-grade vacuums that can effectively trap any remaining dust and airborne particles.

Hiring a construction contractor to renovate my house for the first time, I was not familiar with any of the DSS-related requirements. So, it was quite reassuring to find someone like Tony who is trustworthy and knowledgeable. I also needed a quick turnaround for the completed DSS report and Tony delivered (on time, as promised). In short, Tony was great to deal with. I would recommend him to anyone, anytime.
Tony did an excellent job with inspecting the house. He was very knowledgable in his field and thorough with his inspection. He carefully and patiently looked at both the exterior and interior of the building. He pointed out the deficiencies, what the risks are and how to rectify them. He answered all of our questions and made sure that we understood them. He offered his expertise and help if we needed.
I have heard a lot of stories about home inspection but I could honestly say that I had a great experience. I would like to thank Tony from Inch by Inch Home Inspection for the great experience. A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting Tony through my realtor. I want to thank Tony for taking the time to answer any questions and any concerns I had about my home inspection.
Tony Muscat of Inch by Inch Inspections is extremely professional, caring and a prompt individual, when he heard we may have a mold problem he came immediately. Tony was worried with the level of mold that was contained in this recent purchased older home and he walked me through the process of getting rid of the mold and what dangers were involved. He paid the best attention to us, while we went through this horrible ordeal. The fact that impressed me the most was his vast amount of knowledge, and the dangers of each mould which there are many. He is extremely professional and equipped to handle any job. I would recommend Inch by Inch, (Tony) to anyone he is a concerned and serious individual, that cares about your family!!!!!!!

Thank You!

Tony and Joe were really knowledgeable and great to work with! They explained everything thoroughly and were very responsive to questions. Thank you!
I contacted this company to do an air quality test after we had asbestos wrapping removed from our basement. They were the most reasonably priced. The young man came the same day and was very thorough about the entire process. I appreciate that Tony was able to get my results sooner than the previously date we originally agreed on.
Tony came to my home to help me inspect the potential root causes of some water damage in my home. Through his vast knowledge and the use of the latest technology, he was able to help me understand what led to the damage and how to better prevent it in the future.
