Asbestos insulation is still deeply embedded in older public buildings
A number of building materials in use today contain asbestos, once commonly used as thermal insulation and other uses.
Asbestos in vermiculite insulation has become a concern to many citizens throughout the country. Vermiculite ore, which comes from the W.R. Grace and Company mine in Libby, Montana, contains asbestos ore that was processed and marketed as Zonolite Attic Insulation from 1963 to 1984. Vermiculite insulation was used in millions of homes and businesses nationwide.
If your insulation does contain asbestos, don’t attempt to remove it yourself. Have a state-certified asbestos abatement contractor who is trained in removing asbestos safely do the job.
Diseases related to asbestos exposure are easily preventable when employers take an interest in the health safety of their workers. But that is not often the case, according to the mesothelioma attorneys in the Weitz & Luxenberg P.C. Asbestos Litigation unit in New York.
