DIY asbestos


Have you found asbestos in your home? This is something many homeowners dread. This is because the removal of asbestos is not exactly cut and dry. The material has been linked to the development of mesothelioma and asbestosis.

You may be wondering whether you can legally remove asbestos from your home without any help from a professional abetment company. The Environment Protection Agency (EPA) banned the use of asbestos for construction. The organization also regulates the disposal of materials that are contaminated. Even though the EPA recommends that homeowners use a professional, there are currently no regulations that prevent homeowners from removing asbestos on their own.

Hiring a professional to help with the removal of asbestos is good for safety. However, it is also possible to remove asbestos safely on your own. If you do your research and feel confident enough to remove the asbestos without professional help, there’s no reason not to do it.

As you do your research on asbestos removal, ensure that you find out about local restrictions governing the removal of asbestos. Some local agencies may regulate this activity. For example, in the Washington metro area, homeowners have to acquire a special permit from the Puget Sound Air Pollution Control Agency in addition to a demolition permit if they want to remove materials containing asbestos from their home.

If you’re planning to remove asbestos on your own, be sure to find out more on local restrictions in your area and how they affect:

  • Do-it-yourself removal in a residential home
