The first step in determining whether or not asbestos is present and poses a hazard is identifying asbestos in the construction materials used throughout your home. Asbestos removal should never be done by anyone unqualified to handle asbestos safely. Any asbestos inspection, asbestos testing, abatement or asbestos removal should be done by a licensed abatement professional.
Asbestos exposure can be responsible for:
Asbestos is frequently off-white, but may be blue or brown. The appearance depends on the material it was mixed: cement, polymers, starch, asphalt, or other binders. Some of these substances withstand the deterioration of the elements over time, while microscopic others fly off into the air. Once your air is contaminated with asbestos fibers anyone in your home is susceptible to breathing it into their lungs, where it remains.
A diligent asbestos inspection professional will collect specific air and material samples for independent lab testing. This ensures unbiased and “pure” test results. If asbestos is detected in your home samples, your asbestos inspection company in Reston, VA will work with you to develop an asbestos abatement and/or removal strategy to minimize risk of human exposure, limit unnecessary costs, and provide the maximum protection to you, your family, and guests.

Listen to Our Clients
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.

I used Envirotex at one of my largest client properties, and was thoroughly pleased with their performance. Their service was prompt, and their analysis comprehensive. Follow up and responsiveness were also great. The president of the company personally addressed our questions. I would not hesitate to use Envirotex again.
