COULD YOUR ATTIC BE DANGEROUS TO YOUR HEALTH?
Dangerous Attic Insulation may be hidden above your ceiling.
In newer homes the insulation is usually soft and puffy fiberglass or a cellulose (very finely ground paper). In some older homes a granular product with a silver glint to it may have been used to insulate the attic.
This insulation is vermiculite, a product that may contain asbestos which is dangerous to your health. If you have or see this in your attic, get back out of the attic immediately.
There is a settlement that will pay for testing and some of the removal costs. The product was often sold as Zonolite.
We have seen this insulation used in many of the older homes, and particularly in Fairborn, Xenia, Jamestown, City of Dayton and Kettering.
