Asbestos Removal Service

Specialized Onsite Services Inc. provides both residential and commercial clients with testing and removal of asbestos. Asbestos was used in thousands of building materials before 1980, ceiling tiles, furnace and duct insulation, drywall tape, paints and plasters, and linoleum and vinyl flooring. In 1970 it was proven that asbestos fibers were a contributing cause and increased the risk of lung diseases. If asbestos fibers are released in the air, the risk of inhalation poses a health risk.

We do also provide Air Quality Testing services.

Asbestos abatement (removal) must be handled by a licensed and certified hazardous material contractor. Specialized Onsite Services Inc. can help with all your asbestos removal needs efficiently and effectively. We are recognized by the Ministry of Training Colleges and Universities.

Asbestos Testing

Asbestos tile testing

Often times, asbestos was mixed with other materials, making it even harder to detect it. Specialized Onsite Services offers professional asbestos testing service to residential, commercial and government clients in Ontario.

We use modern equipment to detect asbestos in your home, office or building. There are two types of asbestos tests: PCM asbestos testing and TEM asbestos testing.

Contact us for more information regarding our asbestos abatement and testing services.

Phase contrast microscopy (PCM) asbestos testing and analysis is quick and affordable and will determine the amount of asbestos fibers in the air, it doesn't test for the presence of asbestos. Basically an air sample for PCM analysis is collected on a filter medium which is dissolved during sample preparation so that the collected particulate can than be viewed under the microscope.

Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) asbestos testing is very expensive and will detect the actual presence of asbestos fibers. Air sampling for the determination of airborne asbestos and phase contrast microscopy analysis is fully described in the US NIOSH analytical method 7400 specified in Ontario Regulation 278/05 as analytics method for detecting the presence of asbestos-containing materials (ACM) in buildings and to the handling of asbestos.

Client Testimonials

This past spring when we returned home, our basement was flooded. After notifying our insurance company of the problem, withing 3 hours SOS was on the scene and never stopped until the basement was cleaned out. We hired SOS to do the renovations. Everyone went above and beyond to get the job done. The workmanship was exceptional and the subcontractors did an amazing job. Brain and Levi worked at our place most of the time and they were so friendly and did a remarkable job. We recommend SOS to everyone. If you are even in trouble, don't hesitate to call SOS.Thank you for a job well done.
