Blown Insulation
Hello Everyone, I am new to the Forum and have searched to find out if Blown Insulation from the 70's contain anything that may be health hazardus? The insulation is a Grey color and feels kinda like cotton but just not as soft.My daughter and I have Asthma and I am wondering if it may affect it any.
We just moves into this modular 2 months ago. Any input would be great.

It could be blown cellulose fiber. Could have been treated with a fire retardant. Unless it's leaking into the living space it shouldn't cause any health problems IMO. But I'm not a doctor. When I work in it or around it I wear a respirator.
