What is Asbestos?
Asbestos can be any of several natural minerals that separate into long, threadlike microscopic fibers. When they abrade, or are scraped and worn by friction, we can inhale them and they lodge in our lungs. Because certain varieties do not burn or conduct heat or electricity, they were used for making fireproof materials, electrical insulation, roofing products, filters and more. It is found in homes built between 1940 and 1980.

Great customer service. Reviewed quite a few and found Daniel Freeman, Pres/CEO of Envirotex to be the most knowledgeable and professional of all. Also the most experienced! We would highly recommend this company. (He was very tolerant of all my questions about the inspection and how the treatment would be handled!)
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.
