Asbestos Removal from Paul Davis Red Deer
Asbestos is a hazardous material that was commonly used in building insulation up until the 1990s. Asbestos-containing materials become harmful once disturbed and asbestos spores are released into the air. If you suspect your home contains asbestos, it’s important to have the property professionally inspected and the hazardous material professionally removed to eliminate any potential health risks to you and your household.
At Paul Davis, we’ve been committed to providing home restoration services to the residents of Red Deer for many years now. Our experienced technicians can inspect your property for asbestos-containing materials and have any asbestos removed quickly and efficiently, whether asbestos is found in your drywall, ceiling tile, floorboards, or any other area of your home.

Health Risks of Asbestos
Asbestos fibres are hazardous to humans when inhaled. The health risks associated with asbestos inhalation include:
- Scarring of the lungs
- Difficulty breathing
- Lung cancer
The risks of developing these conditions due to asbestos exposure increase depending on the amount of time spent in an asbestos-contaminated environment, as well as certain lifestyle factors such as your age, health status, and whether or not you smoke cigarettes. It’s important to remember that asbestos-containing materials are only hazardous if they become disturbed. However, disruption can happen in any number of ways, including the rattling of an HVAC system or simply walking over the contaminated area.
