Check For Asbestos If You Plan On Renovating Your Main Living Area

Asbestos abatement and removal

From the 1930s to 1990 there was widespread use of asbestos in over 3,000 products used in house construction in Canada.  You can reduce your risk of exposure from asbestos by hiring Stutters Restorations to test for asbestos before doing any renovating in your main living area.  Once Stutters tests the material, if it does contain asbestos, we’ll remove the material safely before any work starts.  It’s critical to your family’s health to avoid removing asbestos materials yourself.
