Properly removing vermiculite from your home or office building requires expert assistance to ensure all traces of the harmful material is completely cleaned, and no harmful airborne fibres manage to spread. At Scott Asbestos, our team of professional cleaners are ready to take every precaution to ensure the vermiculite contamination in your property is properly dealt with. Vancouver, along with a number of other major residential areas of the lower mainland features a number of homes and properties that were built with materials containing vermiculite. Between 1970 and the early 1990s, a large number of construction companies made use of the vermiculite found in one mine in Montana. Unfortunately, it was later discovered that the vermiculite found in this mine had been contaminated with tremolite asbestos. Despite its effective insulation properties and the ease in which it can be installed, vermiculite is among one of the most hazardous building materials which can be found in BC homes and commercial properties, which is why it must be completely removed by a team of professionals.
Vermiculite can be found in attic insulation, kitchen and ceiling tiles, siding and even in some older roof shingles. With help from Scott Asbestos, any traces of vermiculite on your property can be effectively removed, keeping you and the rest of the building’s occupants safe from possible serious health risks. We take all precautions to identify all potentially hazardous material and isolate it to prevent the spread of any airborne toxins. Once all of the asbestos-based vermiculite has been fully removed, we take great care in ensuring the complete and safe disposal of contaminated materials off site. If you own property that was constructed prior to 1990, it may be time to enlist the help of Scott Asbestos to inspect for any traces of vermiculite or other harmful materials.
