Last month on the mesotheliomahelp.net blog, they did a piece about asbestos in Libby, Montana. As asbestos companies in Vienna, VA will tell you, this case illustrates the critical importance of having a certified, licensed asbestos company test for, verify the presence of, and remove any asbestos detected at your home. A renowned mine and mill in Libby, owned by W.R. Grace, was closed in 1990. It is the documented source of environmental contamination from exposure to asbestos that led to the first ever EPA public health emergency declaration.
Envirotex is a licensed environmental services contractor experienced with asbestos abatement in Vienna, VA. We offer:
Asbestos is a well-researched carcinogen proven to cause asbestosis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma, a serious cancer contracted from inhaling friable asbestos fibers that become lodged in the pleura, the thin membrane that encases the lungs.
The first step in determining whether or not asbestos is present and poses a hazard is by chemical identification. Asbestos is usually off-white, but it could also be brown or blue. The appearance depends on the construction compound it was mixed with, such as cement, asphalt, polymers, or other binding materials.
Senator Max Baucus of Montana recently introduced Senate resolution 66, which notes that asbestos-related diseases are generally undetectable until 10 to 50 years after the initial asbestos exposure. Typically asbestos-related diagnoses are made when symptoms appear and the disease has degenerated to an advanced stage. Unfortunately, we know little about effective treatments for later-stage diseases, and there is currently no cure.
This is why asbestos companies in Vienna, VA are eager to raise awareness of these potentially lethal asbestos-related conditions. If your Vienna, VA home was built between 1940 and 1980, you probably have asbestos somewhere in or around your residence. Common locations include siding, roof shingles, ceiling plaster, insulation, acoustic and fireproofing materials, and flooring. Something as simple as vibrations can release damaged, floating asbestos fibers into the air. As any certified asbestos expert can attest, the only way to safely manage asbestos at this point is to remove it.
If you suspect asbestos is lurking in your home, there are many qualified, licensed, professional asbestos companies in Vienna, VA who can guide you safely through the asbestos abatement process. Contact the professionals at Envirotex if you need responsive, expert assistance with environmental services, including asbestos testing or asbestos abatement, in Vienna, VA.

Envirotex helped alleviate the stress associated with the flooding of our basement. Although the insurance adjuster was quick to get a company in there to rip out the carpeting and drag it out into our driveway (where it remained for several days), neither the adjuster nor the carrier was concern about the ensuing mold growth that we were seeing on the drywall and ceiling tiles. If not for the professional survey, analysis and report that you furnished detailing the extent of the mold contamination, the cause thereof and the work that was required to be performed, I am certain that we would still be fighting with the insurance company. Thank you, we are very glad that we had Envirotex in our corner!
The job was to remove all the old rock-wool insulation and 60-years of dust, bird droppings, and dirt from the attic so that new fiber glass insulation could be installed. Dan's team of workers did a super job in cleaning the attic of all this stuff. I could find nothing remaining between the joist or in corners of the attic. It was so clean that you could have food served on the floor in the attic. They were on-time, completed the work as scheduled, and the work team was professional, organized, and experienced. Highly recommend Envirotex.
