Asbestos is the common name for silicate materials that have a fibrous structure. These materials are extremely resistant to acid and fire making them highly attractive for use in manufacturing building materials subject to extreme heat or acidic conditions. Asbestos can be found in various types of fire proofing materials, electrical and thermal insulation and brake linings. Its durability has made it popular in many heavy industrial applications.

Some limited uses for Asbestos were seen in the 1700's, however, it was not until the late 1800’s during the Industrial Revolution, that asbestos come into widespread use. The steam powered factories of the Industrial Age with their many turbines, boilers, kilns, ovens, and other high-temperature equipment used asbestos extensively for insulation and as a fire retardant.

Other products and services from Biggs & Narciso Construction Services


Biggs & Narciso - fireproofing

Spray applied products include cementitious and mineral fibre applications provide up to 4 hour fire ratings; acoustical applications yield noise reduction coefficient ratings up to 1.05 and thermal ratings are 3.85 per inch of material applied.


Biggs & Narciso - pcbs

They were used in many different types of products including hydraulic fluid, casting wax, pigments, carbonless copy paper, plasticizer, vacuum pumps, compressors and heat transfer systems. We ensure that any such equipment is properly extracted and sealed in government regulation drums, properly labeled and shipped to a registered storage facility to await destruction.


Biggs & Narciso - mould removal

We will not only remove and repair the affected areas, but will also identify and fix the root cause of the problem to prevent any reoccurrence of mould. The presence of moisture is essential for moulds to grow and they are therefore usually found in damp, poorly ventilated areas. Simply limiting sources of moisture and condensation and improving ventilation can reduce the presence of mould spores.


Biggs & Narciso - demolition

Since the majority of our asbestos abatement projects required some type of demolition, it was logical step for Biggs and Narciso to offer demolition as part of our service package. The scope of our demolition work now ranges from selective demolition of a single room, to completely gutting a building to its bare structure allowing for reconstruction.


Biggs & Narciso - lead removal

Clean up should be done with a HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air Filter) vacuum cleaner to ensure a thorough pickup is done without releasing more lead particulates into the air. We will retrofit plumbing to building code specifications and renovate to a finished condition ready for occupation – completely lead free. Waste containers should be properly labeled as containing lead contaminated material and disposed of as hazardous waste.
