Understanding Vermiculite Insulation

Understanding Vermiculite Insulation

If you have been told you have vermiculite attic insulation, then start looking for qualified attic insulation removal. Vermiculite insulation is a type of insulation that is often found in older homes, but it is no longer used due to its potential to carry asbestos.

As described in the video, vermiculite insulation has a silver or coal color to it. It should be tested to see if it is positive for carrying asbestos. If it tests negative, it is not considered dangerous, but many homeowners will still replace it to increase the resale value of the house.
