Vermiculite Testing: What Are the Chances That It Contains Asbestos
What are the chances that vermiculite contains asbestos? This is a question that comes up often and to better explain the answer, you need a bit of history. Before 1985, vermiculite was a popular type of insulation because of its ease of application, its flame retardant properties and also, it must be said, because the government offered subsidies for adding vermiculite in our attic.
One of the biggest suppliers at the time, which produced up to 70% of world vermiculite production, marketed this product under the brand name Zonolite. Since this ore came from a mine containing a high level of asbestos, much of the vermiculite from that mine has been contaminated. That said, as some real estate developments in the Greater Montreal were built by the same contractor (who sourced from the same supplier), we see a trend that generally occurs by neighborhood. If you are in a neighborhood where the houses have roughly the same configuration and your neighbors have had their vermiculite tested, chances are your results will be identical to those of your neighbors.
In short, it’s important to use vermiculite testing to find out if it contains asbestos or not. Insurance companies and banks are increasingly demanding in this regard.
