Understanding Vermiculite and Its Uses

Vermiculite is a naturally occurring mineral that has been used in various industries, most notably construction, for decades. Its lightweight, fire-resistant, and insulating properties make it a popular choice for insulation, potting soil, and even packaging material. However, vermiculite that has been mined from certain locations has been found to contain asbestos, a harmful substance that poses severe health risks.

Prolonged exposure to asbestos can lead to severe health risks, including lung diseases. Therefore, it is essential to have vermiculite tested for any asbestos content, particularly if it has been installed in your property prior to 1990.
