Can I Remove Asbestos Myself?

One of the most common questions about asbestos removal is whether or not a homeowner can tackle the job themselves or if a contractor must be hired.

Like a lot of questions in life, there's no one answer that will apply to every situation.

Generally speaking, safely removing asbestos is beyond the capability of 95% of homeowners except in very limited circumstances.

Asbestos siding can often be removed safely by a homeowner due to its location outdoor and the relative ease with which it can be removed without breaking and disturbing asbestos fibers.

Most other asbestos jobs involve breaking up and disturbing material, which means that specialized equipment must be in place to collect and remove any asbestos fibers in the air.
