Potentially toxic and/or allergenic mould can develop practically anyplace wet conditions exist, from a water-damaged ceiling to a moist wine cellar. It can cause genuine health issues from prolonged exposure, and if left alone can physically damage your property. EMS can detect mould before it impacts your home or workplace.
Asbestos Testing & Abatement
Asbestos is a dangerous material regulated by the federal government. Alberta Occupational Health and Safety has developed a strategy for mitigating the risks associated with asbestos abatement and now is the ideal time for a zero tolerance approach. Asbestos fibres have been directly connected to cancers of the lung and other respiratory illnesses that can be easily prevented. Call EMS and let our experienced inspectors handle your private or commercial asbestos testing.
Air Quality & Analytical Services
EMS provides in-house analytical services for asbestos and mould and has a working relationship with laboratories, consultants and equipment suppliers from Edmonton, across Alberta, Western Canada and the United States. These working partnerships contribute to our multi-disciplinary approach and ensure that all of our asbestos, mould and air quality testing services are affordable and cost effective.
Hazardous Materials Assessments
Hazardous materials can be found in a variety of common building materials and commercial solvents and compounds such as Asbestos, mercury, radioactive materials, lead, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), Creosote and mold. EMS has extensive experience conducting HAZMAT surveys which typically involve assessing and quantifying hazardous material on-site, and providing recommendations and management solutions.
