Renters: You have the right to know about any adverse conditions at your rental Property. Ask your landlord if the U.S. EPA has investigated the property for the presence of vermiculite and asbestos or contact the Asbestos Resource Program for this information.
Renovating: Removing old carpets or drywall, installing ceiling fans or removing wall outlets, taking down walls, putting in windowsRoutine landscaping: Gardening, rototilling or mowingExtensive digging: Septic systems, sprinklers or water lines
High efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter vacuums are effective on small quantities of vermiculite indoors. NEVER vacuum vermiculite with a regular vacuum. Use a HEPA vacuum to remove dust from previously inaccessible locations such as under recently removed carpets, appliances and furniture.
For larger quantities of vermiculite found either inside or outside, do not disturb the material. Do not vacuum, even with a HEPA vacuum. Leave the material alone and call the ARP Hotline.
For a small quantity, such as a handful of vermiculite, found outside, wet it and call the ARP Hotline. If possible, leave the material alone. Regular dust masks are not effective in reducing exposure to asbestos.
