Asbestos will often go airborne when a building is under renovation. For homeowners in Northern Virginia, it is best to know about the presence of asbestos-containing materials before renovation or remodeling is underway. The need for asbestos abatement in Northern Virginia homes demands informed testing, safe assessment, then removal that only experienced, precision-driven professionals such as those at Envirotex, based in Northern Virginia can deliver.
Hiring a qualified, professional asbestos abatement and remediation company insures proper environmental safety protocols are followed.
When asbestos is exposed to air or water it becomes friable, and travels through the air. Asbestos fibers are inhaled into the lungs, where they contribute to plaque and irreversible lung conditions, including deadly cancers. Envirotex professional asbestos abatement technicians are properly dressed for safe asbestos removal in HEPA approved respirators and disposable clothing, along with appropriate eyewear and gloves.
Building and home owners should be aware that mishandling of dangerous asbestos fibers poses a severe health threat to anyone in the immediate area. Something simple, like “removing pipe insulation, tile flooring, or siding containing asbestos without mandated asbestos containment enclosures and without following the proper asbestos wetting procedures," can unnecessarily expose both workers and bystanders to asbestos fibers. Recent EPA violations include substantial danger to the environment and air pollution with improper asbestos abatement.
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral fiber found in older building materials manufactured between the early 1940's and 1978. These include floor tile, drywall mud, window caulking, boiler insulation, siding, shingles, insulation, popcorn ceilings, acoustic tiles, and other building substances.
Only a professional technical accredited company such as Envirotex of Northern Virginia is qualified to safely deal with the identification and removal of dangerous asbestos. All Northern Virginia renovation projects should be aware of the potential need for asbestos abatement and removal.
