In Arlington, VA, environmental cleanup issues affect both businesses and homes. Though big cleanup sites involving rivers and old factories make the news, most cleanup projects affect older homes and commercial buildings. This is especially true when it comes to asbestos, a material that was used in construction for decades before it was legally stopped in the 1970s.
That means hundreds of thousands of homeowners and business owners live and work in structures that contain asbestos. In most cases, it’s not a problem. The danger happens when people breathe in asbestos dust and tiny fibers. These are released as buildings deteriorate with age are damaged or during a remodel or renovation. The changes these cause result in the release of asbestos fibers into the environment. As people breathe, they absorb the asbestos in the air, which can cause serious, even fatal, illnesses.
What should you do if you suspect that your home or business space has asbestos floating free? Experts recommend these four steps:
Asbestos testing and removal aren’t do-it-yourself projects. This is one of the most serious of all environmental cleanup issues in Arlington, VA. There is far too much danger than you will breathe in the toxic fibers yourself. And while you’re poking around and trying to figure out where it is and how to get it out, you can actually make the problem worse by inadvertently releasing more fibers into the environment.

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!)
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++
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!
