Why Is Vermiculite contamination a Threat?
Vermiculite itself is not a harmful substance. It comes from a natural mineral deposit resembling mica. Many companies used vermiculite for insulation purposes because vermiculite expands at high temperatures. This odourless material is also lightweight and fire-resistant.
However, the truth is that despite these valuable traits, vermiculite presents potential risks that home and building owners should not ignore. From 1929 to 1990, most vermiculite came from an area of Montana with asbestos containing vermiculite as well as other asbestos exposure. Because most vermiculite originated from a contaminated source, buildings with vermiculite have a high likelihood of asbestos contamination. This means that you could be living in a home or conducting your business out of a building insulated with asbestos-contaminated vermiculite. Asbestos is a substance that causes more than breathing or other lung-related illnesses but can also lead to chronic diseases.
Asbestos's risks to your health, your family, and your customers are just too high to take vermiculite contamination lightly. To avoid the health hazards of asbestos, people in buildings with vermiculite should consider getting asbestos testing and then insulation removal if necessary. Before obtaining vermiculite removal for your Ottawa home, you must determine your insulation type.
