Asbestos is one of the most risky discoveries in the renovation and restoration of buildings under construction or under demolition. For developers, building and home owners in Northern Virginia, it is best to know about the presence of asbestos-containing materials before beginning a construction or demolition project. The need for asbestos removal, first demands knowledgeable asbestos testing with proper assessment that only experienced professionals, such as those at Envirotex, can provide.
Envirotex is licensed and certified in safe asbestos removal throughout Northern Virginia, and is proficient in the removal of asbestos contaminants.
The risks of improper and illegal removal of asbestos from Northern Virginia renovation projects necessitates the hiring of qualified, professional asbestos testing and remediation professionals and ensures that proper environmental safety protocols are followed. When asbestos is exposed to air or water it becomes friable, and travels through the air. Asbestos fibers can be inhaled into the lungs and potentially contribute to plaque and irreversible dangerous lung conditions, and possible deadly cancers.
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral fiber found in older building materials manufactured between early 1940 and 1978 - materials include floor tile, drywall mud, window caulking, boiler insulation, siding, shingles, insulation, popcorn ceilings, acoustic tiles, and other building substances. Only trained, certified professionals can recognize, perform asbestos testing and safely remove asbestos contaminants.
Dangerous asbestos fibers pose a severe health threat to anyone in the immediate area. Northern Virginian building and home owners need be aware that mishandling of something simple like “pipe insulation, tile flooring, or siding containing asbestos without mandated asbestos containment enclosures and without following the proper asbestos wetting procedures” can expose both workers and bystanders to asbestos fibers and cause air pollution and substantial danger to the environment. Awareness of the proper techniques of asbestos testing and removal is essential for the process of renovation, restoration, construction or demolition of an older structure. Be sure to know the qualifications of the asbestos contractor.
Only a professional technical accredited company such as Envirotex, located in Northern Virginia, is qualified to safely deal with the identification and removal of dangerous asbestos.

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.
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!
Good morning, I just wanted to send a quick "THANK YOU" to you all for a prompt response to my call at the end of last week. My wife told me that the crew members were very professional and explained the process to her. Thanks to Dan for responding during his meeting and working with me. I would also like to thank Sara for jumping on the proposal ASAP as well.
