Does your attic contain vermiculite insulation?
If you have vermiculite insulation in your home, you should assume this material may be contaminated with asbestos and do not disturb it.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) offers the following recommendations:
• Leave vermiculite insulation undisturbed in your attic or in your walls.
• Do not store boxes or other items in your attic if it contains vermiculite insulation.
• Do not allow children to play in an attic with vermiculite insulation.
• Do not attempt to remove the insulation yourself.
• Hire a professional asbestos contractor if you plan to remodel or conduct renovations that would disturb the vermiculite in your attic or walls to make sure the material is safely handled and/or removed.
The Zonolite Attic Insulation Trust (ZAI Trust) was created to help educate the public about the possible health effects of asbestos-containing vermiculite and to provide partial reimbursement for ZAI removal to qualified claimants. More information about the ZAI Trust and eligibility for partial reimbursement of abatement costs can be found at
More information about vermiculite can be found at the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s website.
