I did a house today and discovered vermiculite insulation burried (hidden) below a fresh layer of celulose. I suggested the client have the vermiculite tested for asbestos before purchase, and warned of the cost for removal. Just for my own information can anyone answer the following:
- How long does it usually take to get the vermiculite tested?
- How much does it cost to get it tested?
- If there is asbestos how much does it cost to get vermiculite removed?
- Who takes the sample and how much needs to be collected?
If there is anyone who can share their experience with this it would be greatly appreciated.
