Asbestos Abatement:

Generic Construction Picture

Asbestos is a fibrous mineral that was used in various building materials because of its unique strength and resistance to heat. Some typical examples of asbestos containing materials are sprayed fireproofing, floor tiles, ceiling tiles, pipe insulation, drywall joint compound and attic insulation (vermiculite).

Asbestos is regulated as a designated substance and abatement must be performed before any demolition or renovation project can proceed. Asbestos is a known Carcinogen and associated health issues include Mesothelioma, Asbestosis and Lung Cancer. Health issues from asbestos exposure may not become apparent until 15 to 30 years from time of exposure.

The JMX Environmental team has extensive experience in the safe removal and disposal of asbestos from buildings in residential and ICI sectors. These projects include occupied buildings such as schools, institutions, offices and homes. JMX Environmental has the experience and expertise to safely perform abatement in the most sensitive situations while minimizing interruption to your ongoing operations.

Mould Remediation:

Mould occurs naturally indoors and outdoors in a variety of species. Mould growth relies on moisture and organic nutrients in order to thrive. Building areas with high humidity and inadequate ventilation are ideal breeding grounds for mould.

Visible mould could be an indication of a building systems problem and there may be mould occurring in concealed areas such as under carpets, behind drywall and in ductwork. Mould growth in buildings is a health hazard and precautions should be taken during removal. Exposure to mould may cause skin and eye irritation, nose and throat irritation and in some cases increased rates of respiratory disease and building related asthma. Even dead mould spores can pose a health hazard, therefore it is essential that removal is thorough.

JMX Environmental possesses extensive experience in the safe removal of mould from buildings. Our management and field personnel are well aware of the precautions necessary to control the spread of mould spores and the techniques to complete remediation.

JMX personnel have safely and successfully completed mould remediation projects in homes, offices, institutions and industrial buildings. We have the experience and expertise to offer cost effective solutions which provide minimal disruptions to on-going operations.

Lead Abatement:

Lead-based products are recognized as potential health hazards and should be monitored and controlled if left in place. Lead is commonly found in interior and exterior paints. Common renovation activities like sanding, cutting, and demolition can create hazardous lead dust and chips by disturbing lead-based paint, which can be harmful to adults and children. It can also be found in plumbing such as lead pipes or lead solder on copper pipes. Exposure to lead can have damaging affects, particularly for children less than seven years of age whose central nervous systems are still in a critical stage of development. Some health affects are delayed development, major organ failure, coma and death.

JMX Environmental has a team of professionals that are experienced and trained in the safe abatement of lead based paint and dust.
