If you’ve discovered asbestos in your home, you have two choices. The first is to contact a licensed asbestos abatement company to remove the asbestos from your home. The second is to remove it by yourself.
If you decide to remove it yourself, it is important to take the necessary precautions for your safety. This is because removal can be complicated as well as dangerous. Your aim while working with the contaminated materials is to ensure that there is minimal release of fibers.
The first thing to do is to ensure that you do your research and learn as much as you can about asbestos removal. This will help you learn what precautions to take and the best way to remove and dispose of the contaminated materials.
The second thing to do is to ensure that you have the right personal protective gear. This includes disposable paper overalls and a dust mask that is approved for asbestos. Your biggest priority should be to avoid inhalation of any dust that may be formed during the removal process.
Ensure that the weather conditions are calm if you have to remove contaminated materials from structures on the outside of the home. This will help to prevent the spread of asbestos dust. If dust is formed during the removal, do not dry sweep the dust. Mop it up with a damp rug. A vacuum cleaner may be used. However, this may result in the spreading of dust. You will also have to clean the vacuum cleaner after. This may be difficult.
It is best to try to get rid of entire sheets of asbestos as opposed to breaking the asbestos into small pieces. This will prevent the formation of dust.
