Asbestos Removal / Remediation


We're the Okanagan 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!

"You guys are incredible! Our house has never been so clean. This is a belated thank you for your quick and well organized response to our silica dust problem last month. It was almost overwhelming to suddenly have 10 people here cleaning our house, but everyone was so respectful and helpful with all of our questions that it made the whole experience much easier for us to absorb. Every individual that was here was very pleasant to talk to, and that goes miles for our ability to recommend you and Okanagan Restoration to everyone we tell our little story to. Please say hi, with a big thank you, to all your staff for us."
