Asbestos Removal

Asbestos in Attics and Crawl Spaces

Asbestos is so dangerous because of the way it clings to your lungs when it is breathed in. It is known to cause illnesses, diseases, and certain types of cancer. If asbestos is disturbed within a product like insulation, microscopic fibers that cannot be seen with the naked eye are released into the surrounding air. When they are breathed in, they get trapped in your lungs and remain there. This causes inflammation, breathing problems, scar-like tissues (asbestosis), and more.

Along with the breathing and lung problems mentioned above, asbestos can also cause mesothelioma of the pleura, pleural plaques, pleural effusions, ovarian cancer, diffuse pleural thickening, laryngeal cancer, and even Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. Now, illnesses and diseases take decades to develop. However, you should limit the amount of asbestos that you are exposed to because no amount of exposure to asbestos is safe, especially if you are at risk for health concerns.


At Attic Projects, we ensure that your attic and crawl space will be protected and safe with our technicians and inspectors. Even if you need an insulation issue, and we notice that there are signs of asbestos, we will take samples, warn you and test the sample no matter what project we are working on. We want to make sure that our customers are living safely in their homes.

Chrysotile, crocidolite, amosite, actinolite, anthophyllite, and tremolite are the six most common types of asbestos that were used for commercial and residential purposes

Actinolite has dark brown, needle-like fibers that are made of minerals like calcium, silicon, magnesium, and iron. Although it is a more rare type of asbestos, it can be found in cement, insulation, paint, drywall, and sealants.

Amosite 1.png


Amosite is brown asbestos that has sharp, brittle fibers. Amosite is heat and flame resistant. Under crocidolite, it is the second most common asbestos in the U.S. due to its use for fireproofing for construction materials.

Anthophyllite commonly contains magnesium and iron giving it a yellow/brown color. It is the most rare type of asbestos and is not typically found in commercial products. They have been found in cement and insulation on very rare occasions.

Chrysotile is known as white asbestos. Its fibers a long and curly and they easily weave together with fabrics. Around 90-95% of the buildings in the United States that contain asbestos contain chrysotile. Chrysotile can be found in cement, roofing materials, asphalt, textiles, and more.

Crocidolite 1.png


Known as blue asbestos, crocidolite has extremely fine and sharp fibers. Crocidolite’s fine fibers are the easiest to breathe in. Some studies have proven that crocidolite is the one type of asbestos that causes the most health complications.

Tremolite is tricky because it can be milky white or dark green. Its sharp fibers are mainly made up of magnesium. Although tremolite wasn’t used in manufacturing, it is found in sealants, insulation, roofing, paint, talc-based cosmetics, and plumbing materials.

Although some asbestos is more rare than others, all types of asbestos can be found in insulation. However, there is more than one type of insulation that goes into homes. The most popular insulation that used asbestos is vermiculite insulation. Vermiculite insulation is made of phyllosilicate and looks like mica. If you find pebble-like material in your home, then you most likely have asbestos lingering. Asbestos is typically found in shiny, gold, light brown, or gray colors. 

If you find that you may have asbestos in your home, do not try to remove it yourself. Professionals should be the only ones who touch or remove asbestos. Once the asbestos is identified, it will be properly and safely removed through state-of-the-art equipment. There are strict procedures and precautions that must be followed due to heavy OSHA and EPA regulations. Our technicians and professionals don’t only take safety into consideration for their own protection, but also for the safety of your home and your neighborhood.
