If you have a thorough understanding of asbestos, what it is, how it forms, what are the danger signs, you may be wondering if asbestos remediation in Northern Virginia is regulated. After all, we are dealing with a potentially dangerous material. Here is what you need to know about asbestos regulation in Northern Virginia.
With significant scientific health reports released in 1991, DOLI introduced the asbestos notification and permit program in 1992. The various laws associated are enforced through three organizations (VOSH, NESHAPS and the Labor Laws of Virginia).
It’s not exactly known why Governments do or do not do things, but the dramatic findings released in 1991 and the public fear to follow triggered governing agencies to put in place regulations right away. Previously there had been research released that signified asbestos dangers, but ultimately who are we to understand Governments.
In short, no you do not. If your house is in good condition and material-containing asbestos is not damaged, deteriorated or exposed you can live life as you were before you became aware of asbestos. If you are going to have asbestos removed, you are not legally allowed to go through with the removal yourself – nor would you want to. You must choose a DOLI licensed to complete asbestos remediation in Northern Virginia.
DOLI has various laws in place that are confusing when you take a first look at them. If the asbestos is only a small spot, you probably will not need to tell the Government however the licensed agency you choose will be able to give you all the information you need and can fill out the paperwork as required.
Asbestos remediation in Northern Virginia evolved rapidly in 1991 once the scientific reports were released about the potential deadly characteristics of asbestos were released. While the initial public fear has now subdued, the continued governance of asbestos removal and consumption is expected to cost Governments across the United States billions each year.

I wanted to thank you again for assisting us in the recent meth case in Strasburg.
Wayne W. Sager
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.

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!
