Where Can Asbestos Be Found in Your Northern Virginia Home?

Asbestos Inspection in Burke, VA

The mineral fiber known as asbestos might be found in many materials in your Northern VA home; in the past, asbestos was added to a variety of home products to provide heat insulation and fire resistance. Today, the mere presence of asbestos may not be a hazard, but once asbestos fibers are disturbed and released, asbestos may cause serious health and quality of life problems for you and your family.

Envirotex is a licensed, asbestos inspection and abatement contractor. We offer:

  • Safe and vigilant containment and removal following the highest safety procedures
  • Thorough site decontamination
  • Lawful disposal
  • All asbestos testing performed by an independent, certified lab

Common household products that may contain asbestos, as these materials were made with asbestos in the past, include the following:

  • Roofing and siding shingles
  • Steam pipes, boilers, and furnace ducts may be insulated with an asbestos blanket or tape
  • Backing on vinyl sheet flooring
  • Floor tile adhesives
  • Artificial ashes and embers
  • Patching and joint compounds for walls and ceilings
  • Cement sheet and paper used as insulation around furnaces or wood burning stoves
  • Oil and coal furnaces and door gaskets may have asbestos insulation
  • Soundproofing material sprayed on walls or ceilings

It is not possible to identify asbestos just by looking at it or a household material. Only trained professionals can identify asbestos and how to alleviate an asbestos problem. Never try to take asbestos samples or examine those materials that may contain asbestos yourself, as disturbing asbestos will lead to risky exposure to airborne asbestos fibers.
