Asbestos Testing

in Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal

Protect your home and job site from harmful materials with our asbestos testing services.

Comprehensive Asbestos Testing and Reporting Services

Asbestos used to be considered an innovative construction material. Builders used it to strengthen plastics and cement, in addition to adding using it in roofing and insulation. Unfortunately, asbestos and other substances pose a major hazard to our health.

Getting asbestos testing is essential to protecting the health and safety of anyone on your property. Whether you’re getting started on a new project or a city inspector has halted your current one, Asbestos Laboratories is here to help.

Our asbestos testing lab is conveniently located in the Toronto, Ottawa, and Montreal areas. Our staff will handle the sample gathering, testing, and reporting on your behalf. You can have everything done in a single location.

Rush Sampling Services

We offer rush sampling services to our VIP clients in the Toronto, Ottawa, and Montreal areas.

All you need to do is call our office and tell us the address of where we need to go. We’ll send one of our testing professionals to your location to:

  • Collect the sample
  • Bring it back to our testing lab
  • Give you your results via phone, email, or FAX

We can arrange transportation services if you live farther than 30km away from our lab. Keep in mind that you might encounter an additional fee for travel charges.

Sample Pickup

Our professionals can pick up a sample that you’ve already collected. This service is similar to rush sampling with the main difference being that the sample is already prepared when we get there.

There are a few things you need to keep in mind when collecting a sample. Our tips include:

  • Wear PPE equipment like gloves, safety glasses, and a dust mask
  • Put the sample into a plastic bag
  • Write on the bag where the sample came from
  • Place all of your bagged samples into one large plastic bag
  • Label the large plastic bag with your address

There are a lot of different types of samples that we can test. The most common ones we encounter include:

  • Vinyl floor tiles
  • Drywall compound
  • Silicone around sliding doors and windows
  • Linoleum flooring
  • Plaster
  • Textured popcorn ceiling

  • Wall and attic insulation

Designated Substance Survey (DSS) Reports

DSS reports are key for many job sites. We work closely with homeowners, realtors, and contractors to help them keep their projects moving.

These reports identify harmful substances that might be present on your property or job site. In addition to reporting our findings, we also make recommendations on protecting your workers and other people from health and safety issues.

DSS reports are key to getting a remodeling, construction, or demolition project restarted. A local inspector might’ve shut you down due to the suspicion of harmful materials present. Our reports show inspectors that you’re doing your due diligence to deal with potential health risks.

What We Test

Asbestos Laboratories test a wide range of designated substances. These are dangerous and unhealthy compounds that are commonly found in commercial properties and dwellings. These materials are hazardous to humans and animals and need to get removed before a project can proceed.

Some of the substances we test include:

Hear What Our
Clients Have to Say

Wishing I could give a 10-star review for Asbestos Labs! The woman I spoke to on the phone was so kind and patient. My concerns were validated and all my questions answered kindly by herself and the asbestos labs team. I felt as though I was asking such silly questions, since I’ve never dealt with asbestos before and I was reassured that it is very common to feel this way. I was walked through the process of taking my own samples and I had my results before I knew it! I’m very glad I chose to use asbestos labs for my samples and I will definitely recommend them in the future to others who are in need of testing.
