Asbestos and mold are two of the most dangerous hazards homeowners can encounter because they are so hard to detect. Asbestos does not typically cause problems until the microscopic particles are disturbed, and health problems may occur long after initial exposure. Similarly, you might not know you have a mold problem until you begin exhibiting symptoms of exposure, after it has already been in your home for a while.
Let Reborn Renovations and Restorations put your mind at ease. We offer professional, efficient, and affordable testing and abatement solutions. Our technicians are experienced, licensed, and insured, and they take extensive measures to ensure everyone’s safety.
Once the presence of mold or asbestos has been established, our techs will get to work, sealing off the part of the home that has been affected to keep the microscopic particles from reaching you and causing harm. This is an important part of the remediation process. Our mold and asbestos removal experts do not take any chances. Expect to see them in the proper protective gear, complete with gloves, a high-filtration face mask, and, depending on the extent of a project, a protective suit.
Be wary of any remediation company that does not have the proper education, certification, insurance, or equipment. Asbestos and black mold are serious problems, and you deserve a company that knows what they are doing.
At Reborn Renovations and Restorations, we have worked hard to become a leader in the renovation and construction industry. Our numerous awards and positive customer testimonials speak for themselves. The discovery of mold and asbestos is common during a home renovation, so it only makes sense for us to offer these services.
Asbestos typically is not a problem until you begin making changes to your home. These changes can be as big as adding on an addition or something as small as changing out drywall. In both cases, you risk stirring up these toxic fibers.
If your Calgary home was built before 1990, it is quite possible that asbestos was used in its construction. Most often, this material is found in popcorn ceilings and insulation, but it can also be found in joint compounds, drywall tape, vinyl flooring, and other construction materials. Unless you are fully confident that asbestos was not used in your home, it is a good idea to have a test done before starting any kind of repair or renovation.
Reborn Renovations and Restorations offers these testing services and can safely take a sample for you. We will then send it to the appropriate testing facility and let you know the results in a timely manner. If the result is positive, then you can count on us to remove the offensive material from your home.
Why choose Reborn for your asbestos removal needs?
Reborn Renovations and Restorations adheres to Alberta’s Occupational Health & Safety guidelines for asbestos abatement. This includes ensuring our techs have an asbestos workers certification and giving 72-hours notice to the proper officials before beginning an asbestos removal project.
Removing asbestos completely from a home may be an impractical goal, and the substance is only harmful when it is disturbed and airborne. This typically occurs during construction or when an element that contains asbestos is damaged through an accident or wear and tear. If there are no plans to disturb the element containing asbestos, then monitoring may be the right choice.
It is important to note that when a material containing asbestos does require removal, the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety does not recommend trying to do it yourself. Without the proper gear and training, you risk stirring up harmful debris. It’s just not worth the risk to yourself or your family.
What’s involved in the removal process?
You will get a written, detailed work plan and a team who will follow the asbestos removal protocol. This includes:
What are the harmful effects of asbestos?
If left unaddressed, the harmful effects of asbestos exposure can include asbestosis, mesothelioma, and lung cancer. As you can tell, breathing in these fibers, should they be released through sanding, sawing, or even water damage, can have dire respiratory consequences.

Black mold, which is often referred to as toxic mold, occurs naturally and can never be completely eliminated. If you open a window, you may be inviting mold spores into your home. However, this is rarely an issue. It is not until moisture allows the mold to germinate and spread throughout the home, perhaps in drywall, air vents, or underneath carpet, that it begins to affect those living in the space.
Mold testing is not always necessary. If you are experiencing mold-related problems or believe you can smell it, then we would recommend testing. If you are looking to buy a home and would like to factor in the cost of mold remediation, then we would recommend testing, even if you can see it.
Typically, however, if you can see the mold, it’s enough of an indication that remediation is required.
As with asbestos, Reborn Renovations and Restoration can take care of the mold testing, and we are also certified, licensed, and insured to get rid of the mold for you.
Why choose Reborn for your mold removal needs?
While there are no current government-mandated guidelines on mold removal, all of our technicians have qualified for the Mold Removal Specialist Certification through the IIRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification). Rest assured that our techs can tell you why the mold is there, solve the current mold issue, and prevent it from occurring again in the future.
Common areas in which you may find mold include basements, kitchens, and bathrooms, since these are the areas that see the most water use. Leaking pipes are a common occurrence, and basements naturally have a higher level of humidity. Leaks in roofs and windows may also create the proper environment for mold growth.
Mold is a necessary part of nature, as it is a key part of breaking down plant debris. Unfortunately, this means it may try to break down your home, as well.
A perk of using Reborn Renovations and Restorations for your mold testing and mold removal needs is that we are a full-service company. If we find that your mold problem is related to a leak or venting issue, our company can have a permanent solution in place for you quickly. Why waste precious time searching for a contractor or explaining the situation to a new company when we can have everything back in order for you in a reasonable amount of time, at an affordable cost?
All of our techs, contractors, and representatives abide by the same rules of quality, reliability, and respect.
What’s involved in the removal process?
The first step in the mold removal process is to inspect the area and find the mold that is present. Certain things like furniture, clothing, carpet, etc. that has fallen victim to mold will likely need to be thrown out. Our techs will carefully clean any solid surfaces that can be salvaged while wearing protective gear like gloves, masks, and eye protection.
The removal process varies according to the severity of the problem, but it typically includes:
If the proper equipment is not used, it could actually make the mold problem worse by failing to capture the spores. Be sure to call the professionals at Reborn Renovations and Restorations for your mold removal needs!
What are the harmful effects of black mold?
Besides being smelly and unsightly, black mold can come with numerous health-related consequences. These include typical allergic reactions like headaches, sinus pressure, throat irritation, and a runny nose. Sometimes, however, the reaction to black mold can cause more dire respiratory issues, especially when allowed to continue for long periods of time or when someone in the home has a preexisting condition, like asthma.
