DIY Asbestos Removal
In many parts of the U.S., there are really no laws forcing you to hire a professional asbestos removal company. This means if you wish to perform the removal yourself, you can. Make sure you know your local codes regarding the disposal process after the asbestos has been removed.
Staying safe during this process is the number one priority for any home/business owner performing a removal. Be extremely careful when drilling, cutting or sanding. Any sort of dust particles released during the cleaning can be harmful. The dust is highly toxic and can impact your overall health. It is suggested to remove a nail or the entire siding itself. You should stay safe during this task as long as the shingles are not brittle and don’t cause smoke to emit.

- Crowbar to remove the nails.
- A nail-pulling device.
- Knife or scissors to sever the polyethylene sheet.
- HEPA respirator.
- Disposable garments to clean, such as coveralls, rubber boots, safety glasses, and rubber gloves.
- Container to hold the debris.
- Disposable bags meant for asbestos removal and some duct tape for the bags.
- Basic garden hose with water and a spray attachment.
- Liquid dishwashing detergent.
Hire Asbestos Removal Company
This is your safest bet when dealing with asbestos. It is always better to hire a professional company rather than attempt the job yourself. Professionals will bring the necessary supplies for any removal tasks. These supplies include respirators, suits, shields and water to hold the dust down.
