Have you discovered materials in your home that are contaminated by asbestos? Many people live in homes with asbestos without realizing the level of danger they expose themselves to on a daily basis. Many of these people live in homes that were built before the ban on asbestos was enforced in 1977 by the Environment Protection Agency (EPA).
One of the most important things to remember when handling asbestos is that it is harmless as long as it is not disturbed. Disturbing asbestos can result in the formation of asbestos dust. These fibers have been linked to the development of various cancers. Your main objective in removing and disposing asbestos should therefore be causing as little disturbance as possible.
It is advisable to clean up as you go as opposed to cleaning after completing the entire project. This will help to ensure that every contaminated piece is collected for disposal. It also helps to avoid the risk of dispersing dust.
Avoid dry sweeping. This will stir up dust which will in turn result in the inhaling of dust particles. This should be avoided at all costs. If you want to sweep the floor, sprinkle some water on the floor to prevent dust from rising when you sweep.
It is best to vacuum the surfaces. This prevents dispersal and ensures that the contaminated material is contained. You may, however, have to clean the vacuum after the whole removal process is completed. This may be cumbersome.
All contaminated materials should be stacked in garbage bags. These bags should be sealed inside another garbage bag with tape. Start by placing materials in one bag and continue until it is full. Seal the bag then move on to the next.
