How can I tell if I have vermiculite insulation?
Vermiculite insulation was used in construction from 1920-1990, and was especially popular during the 1950s. If your building was constructed during that time, there is a definite possibility that you have vermiculite insulation.
Some signs that your insulation is made of vermiculite:
- It looks grey/brown and pebbly
- Your building was constructed before 1990
- The insulation particles have an accordion-like texture
- You insulation lays firm and flat
If your insulation is light in color and fluffy like cotton candy, you probably have fiberglass insulation and don’t need to worry. To know for sure if your insulation contains asbestos, you can have professional asbestos testing done in your residence or workplace.
What is vermiculite insulation?
Vermiculite is a naturally-occurring volcanic mineral that was used as an insulation material up until the late 1980s. Vermiculite, also referred to as Zonolite, is silver-gold to grayish-brown in color. Vermiculite can vary in size from fine sand-like particles to large pieces that can be up to an inch long. The insulation made from it looks a bit like fibrous pebbles. You should assume that vermiculite insulation in your home or office building may contain asbestos. Vermiculite was popular before it was discovered that asbestos is a hazardous material that has been linked to lung disease and cancer.
Vermiculite insulation is relatively harmless on its own, however, if disturbed through heat, construction, or other means, the fibers can become airborne and dangerous. That’s because the majority of vermiculite insulation contains asbestos – so when the fibers are inhaled, they can cause a variety of health issues, including aggressive forms of cancer. It’s also important to note that if there are asbestos fibers in the air, they can be carried via clothing items and can cause secondary exposure to occur when people come in contact with other people who have been exposed to asbestos.
