Asbestos is a group of naturally occurring fibrous minerals that are durable and resist high heat. They are frequently found in floor tiles, ceiling tiles, insulation and more. Asbestos can cause Asbestosis, which is a serious, chronic, non-cancerous respiratory disease. Inhaled asbestos fibers aggravate lung tissues, which cause them to scar.

Vermiculite was once known as a miracle mineral: it’s fire-resistant and has strong insulation properties. It was a popular material used in residential homes and commercial buildings, although most vermiculite contains asbestos. The main problem with the asbestos contained in vermiculite insulation is that its fibers are very friable and break off easily, and are then inhaled by the occupants.
Environmentall will take samples from your home that are suspected to have asbestos, where they are then submitted to a lab for analysis.
