Professional Vermiculite Removal Helps Secure A Smooth Sale
Homes in Toronto that are built before 1990 should plan for vermiculite inspection and removal. It provides peace of mind and can contribute to a smooth sale. There is a big chance that the vermiculite insulation may contain asbestos which is a hazardous substance. If contamination does exist, this can become an issue during the sale. A home inspection is likely to reveal the presence of asbestos which could put buyers off.
When You Need Professional Vermiculite Removal?
A professional vermiculite removal service will test the insulation material to determine risk levels and next steps. It is important to note that all vermiculite insulation need not contain asbestos. Further, even if asbestos is detected, it is not harmful if the fibres are not likely to be airborne. When the fine particles of asbestos are released into the air, they can get breathed in and remain in the lungs for a very long time. This has been associated with many debilitating illnesses such as Mesothelioma, Asbestosis and lung cancer.
Your vermiculite removal service will determine if there is a threat of asbestos exposure and then carry out the appropriate remediation process. They will provide a detailed report of the vermiculite inspection and removal (wherever necessary) which will come in handy during the sale.
Should You Disclose An Asbestos Problem?
Never try to hide the fact that your property contains asbestos. It could lead to serious penalties in the future. Renovations and remodelling projects can disturb the asbestos in the vermiculite insulation, release fibres into the air and put the occupants and workers at risk. You are required to conduct a hazardous material inspection before any such projects are undertaken. Do not put the health of future home owners at risk.
If you are listing your home or considering the purchase of a resale home, always be sure to get a home inspection report including a report from an environmental consultant if potential hazardous materials are suspected.
