The Testing Process
Whether you’re planning a project or just curious to test for asbestos, Wise Abatement has you covered.
One of our trained technicians will come to your site and ask a series of question determine which materials should be sampled and tested for the presence of asbestos. These samples will then be tested in a certified laboratory, and an analysis (report) will be provided with the findings.
If any materials needing to be removed are found to contain asbestos, we are happy to provide a free detailed estimate and get to work.

From the City of Calgary Website:
“In the event that asbestos is discovered, or a change to your scope of work has resulted in the potential for releasing asbestos for a project that already has a permit, you are expected to:
- immediately stop work; and
- address the asbestos that has been encountered by:
a) providing notification as required by OH&S by completing the Asbestos Project Notification form; and
b) ensuring asbestos will be dealt with according to OHS requirements; and
- submit a building permit revision to include a revised Asbestos Abatement form acknowledging the removal of asbestos before resuming work pursuant to the building permit.”
