What To Know About Vermiculite Insulation
We cannot stress the importance of removing vermiculite insulation enough. The material is very dangerous when the spores enter the atmosphere. You must hire a professional to ensure that the spores are not inhaled. Vermiculite insulation removal experts will take specific steps to contain the spores and prevent them from flowing through the home. In the 1980s, companies stopped using vermiculite for insulation purposes. This volcanic material naturally occurs in the world. It is silvery gold. It was previously used for insulation because it works great for this purpose.
When used alone, the material is harmless. Unfortunately, the extraction process creates issues. During the extraction, the material will be contaminated with fibers that are like asbestos. If vermiculite insulation is destroyed, heated, or bothered, these fibers are going to enter the atmosphere. Since your vermiculite insulation is safely in your attic, you may believe you should leave it alone.
If you do, this may never create a problem. Nevertheless, it could. If something happens, the asbestos-like spores could escape the attic and enter your home. It is better to remove the insulation first so you don’t have to worry about the risks.
Does Your Vermiculite Insulation Contain Asbestos?
You must be careful when dealing with this type of insulation since it might contain asbestos. It is always wise to have the material tested by a reputable professional. Doing so is the best way to be sure that the insulation doesn’t contain asbestos. However, your insulation likely has asbestos if the following things are true.
- The insulation is flat and firm
- The home was constructed before 1990
- The insulation is either silver-gold or gray-brown
- When it gets hot, the insulation becomes puffy
