Asbestos Vermiculite Removal From Your NH, MA, ME, CT, VT, or RI Property Can’t Wait.
Peniel Environmental is the premier choice for your asbestos vermiculite removal because of our proven track record of excellence.
Asbestos is very common in older buildings. A particularly common asbestos hazard is vermiculite insulation. While vermiculite itself is not an asbestos material, almost all of the vermiculite used in insulation is contaminated with asbestos. An excerpt from epa.gov gives some background on why this is the case:
“A mine near Libby, Montana, was the source of over 70 percent of all vermiculite sold in the United States from 1919 to 1990. There was also a deposit of asbestos at that mine, so the vermiculite from Libby was contaminated with asbestos. Vermiculite from Libby was used in the majority of vermiculite insulation in the United States and was often sold under the brand name Zonolite. If you have vermiculite insulation in your home, you should assume this material may be contaminated with asbestos and be aware of steps you can take to protect yourself and your family from exposure to asbestos.”
If you have vermiculite insulation in your house this is most likely bad news, but don’t panic. Peniel Environmental can test your insulation to determine if it indeed contains asbestos. If the test comes back positive for asbestos, we can offer safe, industry standard solutions for removal that will get you back in your property in no time.
Several decades ago asbestos containing vermiculite was the gold standard in insulation for its many positive attributes. It was low cost and a great insulator. Unfortunately, asbestos has other, not so good attributes such as causing skin irritation and cancer. To compound these risks, many forms of asbestos-containing insulation, to include vermiculite, are often not covered up but open to the air. This means that if the insulation is disturbed in any way, asbestos particles will make their way to other parts of the house and cause an even greater health risk. This is not good. These health risks are why many people are having their asbestos insulation removed by a professional company such as Peniel.
