Asbestos removal in Woodbridge, VA, combined with transmission electron microscope (TEM) testing, are the only way to confirm the identity of asbestos.
Asbestos related health concerns:
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) website says if your home has damaged building materials, like crumbling drywall or insulation, they may contain asbestos. You can’t identify it by looking at it, smelling it, or touching it. If you think your Woodbridge home has a hidden asbestos hazard, the EPA recommends you treat it as if it was asbestos and leave it alone. Contact a professional environmental services company, such as the certified professionals at Envirotex Environmental Services, to schedule an asbestos inspection by a trained and accredited asbestos professional.

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++
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!
