Asbestos is a dangerous material and can cause specific health problems (including lung cancer). If you live in a Warrenton, VA home built before 1980, your home may have asbestos shingles or siding.
Envirotex is a licensed, asbestos inspection and abatement contractor. We offer:
For years, asbestos was used inside and outside of homes. Asbestos siding and shingles were commonly used due to the heat and fire resistance asbestos provided. The material kept heat inside the house and helped prevent fires from spreading.
Asbestos causes problems when it's inhaled into the lungs. Asbestos insulation is usually considered the most dangerous to health because the asbestos fibers become stuck in the throat and lungs, leading to problems such as cancer. However, if you live and or work around asbestos siding for an extended period, you greatly increase your risk of asbestos-related disease.
The only way to distinguish Warrenton, VA asbestos siding from non-asbestos siding is by closely examining the fibers under a specific microscope.
Fibers from asbestos siding generally only appear when the siding is altered in some way. Sawing the siding, cutting it or drilling holes in it can release the fibers and make it possible for you to inhale them. The best way to prevent this from occurring is by leaving the asbestos siding as it is.
If you are concerned that your Warrenton, VA home may have asbestos siding, please contact the experts at Envirotex Environmental Services. Envirotex Environmental can take samples safely, and send them off to an independent lab for determination. If your Warrenton, VA home does have asbestos siding, Envirotex Environmental can assist you and your contractors with safely removing and disposing of the asbestos siding.

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++
Great customer service. Reviewed quite a few and found Daniel Freeman, Pres/CEO of Envirotex to be the most knowledgeable and professional of all. Also the most experienced! We would highly recommend this company. (He was very tolerant of all my questions about the inspection and how the treatment would be handled!)
The attic looks great. Again, thank you for your rapid response, great job and going the extra mile.
