What happens after asbestos material has been discovered in your home? Do you have to get rid of the asbestos in your Sterling, VA home?
Well, you are going to have to undertake asbestos abatement. After asbestos fibers are disturbed, they become airborne and can become extremely hazardous if inhaled. Diseases like lung cancer and mesothelioma can result, so you will want to avoid any unnecessary exposure.
Envirotex is a licensed, asbestos inspection and abatement contractor. We offer:
There are two ways to deal with asbestos – encapsulation or removal from your Sterling VA home or business. Sometimes, it’s safer and more cost effective to properly manage asbestos materials in place through encapsulation. (Encapsulation means that the asbestos materials are sealed off and contained.) This containment doesn’t last forever, and the encasement will eventually wear away. Your home will need to be put on a regular maintenance schedule, with check-ups to make sure the asbestos is securely contained.
However, you need to understand that if you choose encapsulation, at some point you will eventually have to have the asbestos removed. This knowledge might help you decide which method is the right one for you.
Envirotex Environmental Services, LLC. will inspect your home and advise you on how to handle any asbestos-containing materials. In many cases, asbestos that is intact and in good condition may not necessarily need to be removed. However, asbestos-containing materials subject to disturbance will most likely be candidates for asbestos removal.

Listen to Our Clients
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.
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 truly came to our rescue. With the discovery of asbestos during our current renovation project, we were faced with the possibility of a considerable delay. Envirotex's prompt response, competitive pricing and flexibility to work off hours prevented any schedule slippage.
