After watching TV,on Grace minning in Libby
Montana , Iam now informed that pour in vermiculite insulation may have abestoes in it. well I have been gutting an old house, and in the attic, is what looks like vermiculite
poured in, covered with cellouse insulation.
I do not know if this stuff is a health risk to me or not? Where can I find more info on
this matter? Thanks

You would need to call for an asbestos inspection. It is not cheap, but they will tell you whether it is present or not.

An asbestos test is really not very expensive. I guess it depends on where you live. I have them done for $90.00. Look in your yellow pages under TESTING LABROTORIES.
If you can't fine one, call a Real Estate Broker, and they will tell you one to call.
They will have a list. I saw the Grace mine segment also. I have been telling people this for years, but you know how that goes.
That is bad S---(stuff). Good Luck
