Chrysolite asbestos

Asked January 24, 2019, 4:02 PM EST

What are the dangers of chrysolite asbestos in insulation? Must it be removed? What level of actinolite requires remediation? We have an ambiguous testing report with under 1% of actinolite in three samples but one of those sampled is 50% chrysolite.
