Vermiculite is another contaminant that can be found in the building materials used in the construction of older homes and businesses. Urban Environmental is a leading provider for vermiculite abatement in Vancouver and it’s a smart move for folks who want to provide a safe living space for their family or do the same as a place of business. Removing vermiculite from building materials is like any other specialized property restoration job in that it’s not something that should be taken on by anyone other than a crew of experienced restoration techs.
Vermiculite abatement procedures are sometimes needed for old offices and homes. During the 1900’s, around 70 percent of the world’s vermiculite came from one mine in Montana. It was found later that vermiculite ore from this mine was contaminated with serious amounts of tremolite asbestos. Materials that used this substance were used for construction of homes and buildings.
Older homes and commercial properties were commonly insulated with vermiculite. It was easy to apply, had effective insulating properties and was commonly used throughout Vancouver. Contaminated vermiculite removal services is one of the many property restoration services for Vancouver owners that we’re pleased to be able to offer.
Our vermiculite removal process is a step-by-step approach that’s proven effective for removing vermiculite from anywhere in a home - kitchen tiles, attics, basements, house siding, paneling, roof shingles are just a few places asbestos can be found one. Insulation around water boilers, the inside of walls and ceiling paneling are some of the spaces where contaminated vermiculite is typically found in offices.
After the completion of a job, we can state that the entire property is asbestos and vermiculite contaminant-free and we then dispose of contaminated materials in a safe and effective manner.
