Asbestos removal is performed according to regulated standards of practice required by the state of Virginia and Federal governments, particularly the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, depending on the size or quantity of asbestos needing removal. After a professional inspection, in many cases, asbestos that is found to be intact and in good condition may not need to be removed. However, asbestos materials found in Winchester, VA homes subject to disturbance, especially due to remodeling, can be required to be removed, a process often called abatement.
The most difficult part of asbestos abatement is making sure particles and asbestos fibers are not disturbed and stay out of the air, a task that is best left to professionals. The removal of non-regulated asbestos-containing materials can legally be performed at your Winchester, VA home by homeowners, contractors, or licensed asbestos contractors, but is a process that should be left to professionals. Anyone who undertakes the abatement process must meet the same legal standards for protecting workers, the environment, and the family that resides in the home being worked on. Asbestos removal professionals are familiar with these regulations and the most experienced in meeting these regulations and protecting others from exposure to asbestos.
Envirotex is a licensed, asbestos inspection and abatement contractor. We offer:
The abatement process includes several key steps that must be practiced in a highly controlled and professional manner. First, the targeted area to be abated is completely isolated using either vinyl or plastic sheeting. Air filters and units are then installed, which will monitor the air for any trace amounts of asbestos. Asbestos removal workers working in homes in Winchester, VA must enter the clean area through special airlocks and must be clothed in special suits. The asbestos removal from your Winchester, VA home is performed by hand, as workers place the removed material into special sealed bags that must be transported to licensed disposal sites.
Asbestos removal experts employ controls throughout the entire abatement process to ensure that workers and the surrounding environment are kept safe during removal. For more information on the professional process of asbestos abatement, contact Envirotex Environmental Services.

Listen to Our Clients
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.
The attic looks great. Again, thank you for your rapid response, great job and going the extra mile.
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.
