Asbestos removal

My wife and I purchased an older home in Mississauga with intentions of renovating. Since the house was built in the '50s we knew there was a good chance some of the materials inside would contain asbestos. Sure enough, after hiring a professional environmental company to test different samples of material (popcorn ceiling, plaster walls, attic insulation, air ducts), a positive result was found in the ceiling texture material & tape surrounding air ducts.

Having previous experience working on renovations in our past homes that did not contain asbestos, I knew this would require specialized help to remove. Asbestos is not something an amateur can cleanup without putting himself & others health at serious risk.

This is where Gilbert from GreenStream comes in. I contacted several companies who specialize in Asbestos removal; GreenStream left me with the best initial impression so I decided to hire them to remove the Asbestos containing material from our house.

Gilbert and his team showed up on-time and completed the job with precision, leaving the property very clean. It was as though no one was ever in the home.

Prior to re-entering the house an air quality test needs to be conducted in order to get a clearance letter allowing people back into the house. The air quality test done in our house passed with flying colours.

We are now excited to move forward with our renovations in our Asbestos free home! Thanks GreenStream!

Asbestos Removal

We had some asbestos that needed to be removed from our home and we had a competitor of theirs give us a quote. The competitiors price was higher and was not as thorough. Greenstream took the time to look at all of our ducts and discovered more asbestos issues that the competitor did not bother to check. They did the work and left everything clean. I feel assured that tey did a good job and was very happy with their service. I would not hesitate to recomend them.

clean mold in condo unit

I bought a condo unit and after commencing my renos discovered mold. I found it on the subfloor after removing the laminant pieces on the surface. I realized the extend of the damage after lifting the sub-floor. The problem originated on the balcony (common element) where water pooled after the rains over the years in the slumped corner of the balcony floor going in towards the unit. The condo corp would not touch it since they feel that I am responsible for the interior of my unit. Since the problem started on the outside, I will be taking them to court to recoup my expenses. In the mean time, I had my unit tested for mold and it came back positive. I then hired Manny from Greenstream to clean up the mold. Wow, talk about professionalism. Manny came to my home to inspect the damage, then explained to me in detail what the process would be, the amount of time taken, and the approximate cost that it would be. He would later send me a quotation via email and then we planned when they would come in to do the work. The crew came in and did their work thoroughly and impressively. It took a day and they were able to salvage most of the walls thus enabling me to keep my expenses down. Compliments to Manny and his group for the fine work that they carried out in my home. I highly recommend this company to all that are in the same situation that I was in. Worth every dollar spent. Many thanks and God bless!

Asbestos Material Removal

GreenStream Environmental did a great job for us. We found asbestos material when renovating our basement. After an inspection more asbestos was found in various parts of our house. We then contacted GreenStream and Gilbert came to the house and quoted for their work to remove the materials. The quote came in lower than we expected. The job was estimated to take three days but only took two and the workmen left our house in impeccable condition. You would not even know they had been there, apart from the obvious removal of the asbestos. We now feel safe in our home thanks to GreenStream.

Aside from the good work done the workers even offered to feed our cat while we were away from the house. This was a nice gesture which made us feel more comfortable in entrusting our house to them.

A week after the work was complete there was a leak in the main floor bathroom that was stripped as part of the job. We contacted Gilbert and he arranged for a plumber to come to the house to fix the problem at GreenStream's expense. We really appreciated his help with this.

We would definitely recommend this company to other people. It was a pleasant experience and it restored our faith in hiring good contractors.

Type 2 Asbestos removal

I work for a design & build contracting company and we've used GreenStream on several projects. It is not uncommon for us to find asbestos in the older homes we renovate, Manny is alway quick to accomodate us which helps to keep us on schedule. Their team is great to deal with and I always feel comfortable recommending them to our clients.

Vermiculite removal from attic.

We were extremely pleased with the vermiculite abatement services provided by GreenStream. The time for completion of the project was shortened considerably by the prompt action of the Managing Director, Manny Oliveira, who was able to bring in and coordinate, on very short notice, the third party services that are critical in this type of work. The crew which worked in our home was diligent, hardworking, and respectful of our property.

Asbestos Abatement in Living, Dining and Kitchen

We are renovating our 1960's home, were doing some of the work ourselves including demolition but were worried that we may have asbestos in the drywall joint compound and textured ceilings in the living/dining room. We took some samples and sent them off to an environmental testing lab and sure enough, there it was. The worst and most dangerous was in the textured ceilings so we started on our search for a company to do the abatement. There are many companies out there that do "abatement" and after interviewing a few we felt most comfortable with Greenstream. We wanted a company that we felt would do the work correctly, legally, and handle the disposal of the asbestos the proper way. Their team of four showed up on day 1 and spent most of the day just setting up. We had to be out of town for the next 3 days but they kept us informed via email, arranged for a 3rd party inspection/certificate of air quality, and when we got home the work was done, the work area was spotless and the air quality passed with flying colours. We were very impressed and would highly recommend Greanstream to anyone looking for asbestos abatement.

asbestos removal

Manny was very informative and helpful. Most impressive was how quick he was at arranging an appointment, sending an estimate,arranging the asbestos removal, and addressing any problems. The crew did a thorough job, and left the place in pristine condition. Not cheap, but this may be the norm for this kind of job. Certainly very well done.

Asbestos abatement

We needed to have the old asbestos wrapping removed from our radiator pipes running from the basement, in preparation for a renovation involving updating our electrical wiring. I called a few places, received a very professional response from Manny at Greenstream, and decided to go with his price quotation as it was detailed and also reasonable compared with other quotes I'd had. The process went very smoothly and the 4-person crew worked hard to complete it in one day. They did a great job and now we can move forward with our reno. Many thanks to Manny for answering my many questions and making sure everything went as discussed, on time and on budget.

Asbestos removal from basement parging

I wish Manny would do entire renovations. His company is the best operation I have ever witnessed in terms of quality, speed, cleanliness and professionalism. The job was far more challenging than anticipated (removal of asbestos laden parging on a rubble foundation). He came in on time, on budget and was very flexible in terms of starting time.

Manny please go into the business of whole home renos!!!!!

I would be happy to show anyone pictures of our basement before and after.
