We do Asbestos Inspections in Winchester, Virginia
Buildings have used asbestos since the late 1800s for insulation. It is a natural material that is resistant to heat and decay. At the beginning of the 1900s, early signs suggested that this material causes illness among asbestos workers. However, it wasn’t until 1972 that the United States government took action to pass laws against the use of asbestos. While newer structures do not use this material in their insulation, construction with asbestos did not cease until around 1975.
Winchester Environmental Consultants Inc. can determine if your dwelling has this deadly material with an asbestos inspection.
Mesothelioma is the main cancer that asbestos causes. The pores from the material enter your lungs by breathing in small particles. They attach to your body and stay. While it may take years for cancer to be detected, it can hit your family like a whirlwind. The particles not only attach to the lungs but can adhere to other organs as well. Early signs of exposure are difficulty breathing, losing weight, and unexplained coughing. Protect your family with asbestos inspections in Winchester, Virginia. Our company, Winchester Environmental Consultants Inc., can come out to see if you are vulnerable.
Using over 1% of asbestos is illegal in the United States. However, some companies may bend the rules. This can lead to newer construction containing dangerous amounts of these pores. They spread through the air without you knowing until it is too late. While you can sue companies for the exposure, first make sure you are safe. Before you complete any remodeling projects, get a test to protect your workers as well. Asbestos testing is easy and hassle-free. Our courteous employees at Winchester Environmental Consultants Inc. can take samples within a short time. Then you will receive a report of our findings.

We also do: Asbestos Project Design & Monitoring
Project design includes the development of a comprehensive abatement plan according to all state and federal guidelines.
WECI’s plans are developed by licensed project designers to include all aspects of your abatement needs, including operation and maintenance programs, as well as repair, encapsulation, enclosure or removal of asbestos material. This ensures that the abatement confirms to your specific site needs and also makes an excellent pre-bid document for contractors bidding on larger projects that may involve hazardous materials.
In addition to project design and abatement, WECI employs licensed asbestos project monitors to supervise all operations where they are required by law or requested by the client.
The project monitor serves as an independent party from the abatement company that represents the interests of the building owner. The project monitor ensures asbestos contractors follow all appropriate state and federal laws, as well as any special conditions stipulated by the client. Project monitors also collect air samples at the end of abatement activities to ensure safety in building reoccupation.
WECI maintains a licensed asbestos laboratory capable of on-site analysis for asbestos air samples, allowing abatement projects to be concluded rapidly once the material has been properly removed.
In addition, WECI can analyze asbestos air samples collected by abatement contractors or other third parties on various turnaround times. Please contact us for more information regarding our laboratory.
