Ripple Rock Restoration DKI in Campbell River safely removes Asbestos containing materials from homes and commercial buildings in Campbell River, the Comox Valley (250-897-6060) and communities on Northern and Central Vancouver Island and adjoining islands including remote access communities.
Asbestos containing materials were banned for use in residential homes in 1977, after asbestos was found to be cancer-causing. Building contractors were given a “grace” period until 1983. Asbestos can commonly be found in vinyl composite tile, vinyl sheet goods, linoleum, drywall-filler compound, ducting sealant tape, pipe insulation, and standard housing insulation. In fact, a bulk sample of drywall filler taken in the Lower Mainland as late as 1991 was still found to be asbestos-containing. As such, it is not uncommon to come across asbestos containing material while performing restoration work on your home or commercial building on Vancouver Island.
