If you’ve discovered materials containing asbestos, or areas contaminated by mould or vermin, our specialized teams will carry out decontamination work according to established standards.
Asbestos was long used in the construction industry because of its heat resistance, insulation properties and absorption capacity. Inhalation of asbestos fibres can cause a variety of serious illnesses. That is why, in Quebec, strict standards must be applied when removing this contaminant.
The risks involved in asbestos removal can range from low to high. Our specialists have the necessary expertise to put in place appropriate protocols for each job. After evaluating the premises, they can advise you, provide an estimate, and carry out the work.
All asbestos removal sites are regulated by the CNESST. Feel free to contact us for more information. You can also read the following CNESST publication on asbestos:

Once you’ve detected mould, it’s important to determine the cause and type. An independent firm of microbiologists will analyze the mould and let us know how much is present on surfaces and in the air. We can then put a decontamination protocol in place. The report issued by the analysis firm will include useful recommendations, based on the extent of contamination.
People exposed to mould can develop cold-like symptoms and aggravated asthma. Young children, the elderly, pregnant women and people suffering from a respiratory disease are more susceptible to the effects of mould contaminants.
With over 40 years of experience in the field, our teams will help you get rid of mould and ensure a healthy environment for all.
Dry rot is caused by the wood-eating fungus serpula lacrymans. The fungus grows naturally in forests, like other mushrooms. It commonly attacks wood in dark, damp and unventilated areas such as basements and crawl spaces. Dry rot decays the wood structure until it decomposes. You can recognize it by its fine white strands and reddish “tears” at the edges of the mycelium. Dry rot is very common in France and we’re seeing a lot more of it across Quebec.
We’re the first company in Quebec to have become certified in the removal of dry rot. Our specialists received training in France from an experienced mycologist, learning effective techniques to eradicate this fungus, which is causing extensive damage here.
The Quebec government will be putting in place a program to help those affected by dry rot. In the last provincial budget, the government earmarked over $5 million over three years to support homeowners struggling with dry rot.
