If asbestos is secure and enclosed in your building, it’s typically considered safe and should be left alone. If you’re considering renovations, demolition or remodelling projects in a building built in the ‘80s or earlier, however, it’s important to bring in the experts for residential asbestos abatements. At Breathe Easy Eco Solutions, we assess the situation, and if necessary, provide abatement. We’re the ones to call for asbestos removal in Winnipeg, Saskatchewan and Northwest Ontario! Since asbestos can be difficult to find, we can test physical materials for asbestos and test the air for asbestos fibres. If we find that you do have asbestos in your property, we will provide guidance for what steps to take next.
Many old building structures are built with asbestos-containing materials, and if disturbed, the asbestos fibres can spread in the air. Only professionals can identify the places that have asbestos through experience and by using the necessary equipment. Asbestos is classified into friable and non-friable. Friable asbestos allows the fibres to move easily into the air and that creates the most danger to your health (vermiculite, drywall joint compound, stipple and stucco, etc.). Non-friable asbestos has the fibres locked into the material and poses a lesser threat (linoleum, floor tiles, Transite, etc.).
At Breathe Easy Eco Solutions, we always want to ensure that your home or business is safe and free of toxic chemicals that can harm your health. That’s why, when we remove asbestos in your Winnipeg home, we use environmentally sound methods, approved Federal and Provincial guidelines.

Breathe Easy Eco Solutions provides free asbestos inspection services. Upon conducting a detailed, professional inspection, we assess the risk and determine the presence of asbestos in the construction materials and the air. The assessment helps us select the most suitable removal process and provide you with a no-obligation, accurate quote, along with a description of the work to be done.
An asbestos inventory is a document that provides a detailed account of which construction materials in a building may contain asbestos. It might be required when you are applying for a demolition permit for a building. Breathe Easy Eco Solutions provides asbestos inventory services in Winnipeg. We conduct professional inspections of your building and collect and test samples for the presence of asbestos. The results of these tests are summarized and provided to you through the asbestos inventory. We list every material tested and mention whether or not the material contained asbestos. We also list materials that are not tested and why they were not required to be tested.
The importance of insurance in any business cannot be stressed enough. The right insurance policy can cover your business and employees from damages caused at the workplace. Potential risks such as asbestos and mould contamination can be prevented with regular asbestos inspection and asbestos removal in Winnipeg. It is advisable to look into the type of insurance policy you have prior to having any work done. Breathe Easy Eco Solutions offers Occurrence Form Policy for your convenience. The Occurrence Form Policy will cover any incidents that occur during the time your insurance is active long after the insurance is no longer active.
