The health effects of asbestos came too late for many with mining of asbestos prevalent in the early 19th century causing many illnesses and early deaths to miners and homeowners, unaware of the toxicity. Note, if you think you have asbestos in your home consider asbestos remediation for your Leesburg, VA home in consultation with experts.
This is a problem in your lungs causing shortness of breath and coughing. Over a prolonged period lung scarring can cause further breathing related problems.
Cancer is possible. The rare cancer mesothelioma can be diagnosed in Leesburg, VA residents with no asbestos remediation in the home when it is sorely needed. This cancer affects the lungs, chest cavity and your abdomen.
If you are a smoker you are already putting yourself at risk of lung cancer, which can also be a result of asbestos exposure.
Other lung related problems that can be caused by asbestos are pleural plaques, lung membrane thickening and pleural effusions. While these may sound like high tech diseases, the simple way to describe it is horrible. Asbestos exposure is no joke.

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.

Good morning, I just wanted to send a quick "THANK YOU" to you all for a prompt response to my call at the end of last week. My wife told me that the crew members were very professional and explained the process to her. Thanks to Dan for responding during his meeting and working with me. I would also like to thank Sara for jumping on the proposal ASAP as well.
What can I say... Thank you! Your team arrived on time, treated my home with respect, finished the job on time and did what you said they would do. A++
