    ASBESTOS INSPECTIONS OF VERMONT FREQUENTLY INSPECTS STRUCTURES FOR THE PRESENCE OF VERMICULITE.

    Unfortunately, EPA and Vermont guidance recommends leaving vermiculite alone and assume that it contains asbestos. Approximately 80% of all vermiculite originated from a mine in Libby, Montana. Asbestos-containing veins were present at the mine and, as a result, much of the vermiculite from this mine was contaminated with asbestos. If vermiculite is present in areas that will be disturbed in any way via renovations, demolitions, accessible by children, etc., a Vermont Licensed asbestos abatement company should be contacted to remove the vermiculite before it’s disturbed to minimize the risk of asbestos exposure.
