There's no doubt that you've heard of asbestos and how its possible presence in your Manassas, VA home can harm your family's health. But do you know exactly what asbestos is?
Quite simply, asbestos is a mineral fiber that is strong and flexible enough to be spun and woven. Asbestos fibers are also durable and heat resistant, which made them a useful material for many industrial products and components. However, asbestos' durability also makes it a harmful agent that, when inhaled, will remain in one's lung tissue for a very long period.
Envirotex is a licensed asbestos testing and removal contractor. We offer:
Breathing high levels of asbestos can lead to an increased risk of lung cancer, mesothelioma - the cancer of the lining of the chest and abdominal cavity, and asbestosis, or lung scarring. Many products made today do not contain asbestos, and those that do contain asbestos must be labeled as asbestos-containing materials. However, many building products and insulation materials made before the 1970s and used in your Manassas, VA home or business could possibly contain asbestos. These products can include roofing, shingles, siding, steam pipes, boiler, and furnace insulation, door gaskets, textured paints, and soundproofing materials, among others.
We are all exposed to low levels of asbestos in the air, but many asbestos-containing materials can be harmful once disturbed and once asbestos fibers are released into the air. If you suspect asbestos may be present in your home, do not touch it or disturb it, as the only way to confirm the presence of your asbestos is through professional examination and testing.

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 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.
I used Envirotex at one of my largest client properties, and was thoroughly pleased with their performance. Their service was prompt, and their analysis comprehensive. Follow up and responsiveness were also great. The president of the company personally addressed our questions. I would not hesitate to use Envirotex again.
