Asbestos Insulation Removal
If your home was built before the 1980’s, then there is a good chance that asbestos containing materials were used in either building or renovating (if the home was built before the 1930’s) the property. Asbestos Insulation was so favourable due to its high fire retardant and excellent insulator characteristics. Unfortunately, the health hazards that came with using asbestos were not found until years later, which lead to serious health conditions to those that were exposed.

Where can asbestos insulation be found?
There are a couple main areas where asbestos insulation is typically found:
1. Attic Insulation & Wall Insulation
Asbestos Attic Insulation and Asbestos Wall Insulation are also known as “Vermiculite”. Vermiculite is the form of insulation that can contain asbestos. If vermiculite is found, we advise home owners to test the vermiculite first, to identify if it contains asbestos. Looking at vermiculite can not give you the answers that you need to determine if asbestos is found.
What does Vermiculite look like?
Vermiculite is a small, rock-shaped material that has shine to it.
2. Pipe Wrap Insulation / Duct Wrap Insulation
Asbestos insulation can also be found wrapped around your pipes or duct work. With asbestos being a great fire retardant, it was perfect to use around the pipes and ducts to ensure there was no fire hazards when they were hot in temperature.
In relation to Asbestos Duct Wrap Insulation, the register vents are commonly affected as well. Even if the duct work does not have asbestos wrap, the vents may still contain asbestos.
