Avoiding Asbestos Contamination

Summary: : A word of caution about asbestos-contamination and asbestos products, their removal, and the dangers of diseases like mesothelioma.

Asbestos May Be Present at Your Home Electrical Project Location



Today many people are taking on remodeling projects in their older homes to help increase their property values and bring electrical wiring up to local and national electrical codes.

Before you begin its a great idea to check out the possibility of any hazardous conditions including existing asbestos materials to avoid the possibility of asbestos-contamination.

Here I will be presenting a series of information as it pertains to attic insulation and paying close attention to a substance known as vermiculite.




I have encountered the presence asbestos-contamination with vermiculite and will be sharing the concerns by way of government resources to help you avoid the possibility of coming into contact with a asbestos-contamination substance, which in many cases has been identified to contain asbestos, which could be a threat to your health and others in the remodel location.

It was bad enough that this home still had the old knob-and-tube-wiring, but to my surprise - under the fiberglass insulation was vermiculite insulation.

This vermiculite insulation was a granular looking substance which looks like it has expanded in size.
