Asbestos Removal / Remediation


We're the valley's asbestos removal service experts.

Our offices in Kelowna, Vernon, and Penticton are staffed by certified asbestos specialists trained beyond industry standards in hazardous material identification, containment, and removal.

As property restoration professionals we are uniquely qualified to identify, contain, and remove asbestos in both homes and commercial properties. Asbestos exposure can have serious negative health effects, so the safety of your property is the top priority. We also have Certified Insurance Professionals (CIP) in case your situation may involve an insurance claim.

Knowledge of how to properly remove asbestos requires constant education and training in the latest techniques and equipment. Our technicians ensure your home is safe during and after the removal process. We work with environmental hygienists to conduct lab tests before and after remediation: confirming first the presence, and later the complete removal of asbestos or mold from your property. With asbestos there is no room for error.

We also work closely with WorkSafeBC to ensure top-to-bottom best practices are in place for the safety of our customers and our team.

We are experienced in handling both large-scale commercial and household projects, and we are happy to provide free consultations and estimates. If you suspect the presence asbestos in your property, contact us today and put your mind at ease.

"Attn: Kyle Goulet Project Manager Okanagan Restoration Good Morning Kyle, I am a retired Principal in School District #83 North Okanagan - Shuswap. Carl Cooper, the Principal of South Broadview, was away this week and District management asked me to look after the school in Carl's absence. Over the course of the week I have had the opportunity to watch Chad, Heather and their assembled teams work on remediating the damage caused by the recent fire. I'd like to pass my first hand observations on to you. The entire team's observable work ethic and attention to detail is impressive. Over the course of the week I have watched them meticulously clean everything from ceiling t bars and rafters, to miles of electrical and telecommunication cables, to brick walls, staplers and bulletin boards. Nothing appears to escape their attention. Every edge, nook and cranny gets a cleaning and every member of the team appears to be working hard. I am confident that by the conclusion of this restoration they will have thoroughly cleaned every observable and non observable surface in the rooms and halls effected by the recent fire. Equally impressive is the apparent pride each of the crew members take in their work and the friendly, thoughtful manner with which they interact with me, their fellow team memebers, and other contractors working in the building. South Broadview students, parents and staff will be the beneficiaries of their hard work, attention to detail and dedication. I am very hopeful the restoration of the school will be on time and budget. I know the entire school community will be grateful to have the school restored in a competent and timely manner. Please feel free to pass on my comments and gratitude to your team. Respectfully Steve Atkins cc Carl Cooper, Principal Glenn Borthistle, Superintendent of Schools Wendy Woodhurst, Director of Instruction Steve Bennett, Manager of Facilities Bev Snow, Building Services Manager "
