Although it’s not illegal to remove asbestos on your own, it’s not recommended for health reasons. Asbestos fibers are dangerous and shouldn’t be touched. When touched, they produce dust particles that invade the air and can be inhaled. The fibers themselves are toxic. Conversely, if the fibers are still intact and have no signs of wear and tear they can be safely left in the home.

Asbestos removal can be incredibly dangerous when it’s performed by unqualified people. When asbestos is undisturbed, it is not necessarily dangerous. For example, Asbestos-containing ceiling tiles, floor tiles, undamaged laboratory cabinet tops, shingles, fire doors, and siding shingles do not release asbestos fibers unless they are disturbed or damaged in some way. It’s specifically the dust fibers that make it dangerous. Asbestos becomes life-threatening when inhaled because the body can’t break down the particles and they stay lodged in the lungs and create disease.

Asbestos removal may be covered by your homeowner’s insurance. However, it’s not guaranteed. The mere presence of asbestos doesn’t necessarily pose a risk. As crazy as it sounds, homeowners insurance generally won’t cover removing asbestos that’s undisturbed and intact. However, if a natural disaster creates a problem by destroying the attic and disturbing the asbestos and dust particles, it may be covered. It should be noted, however, that other things may be excluded. For example, loss to property or people resulting from asbestos may be excluded from your coverage. You’ll need to check with your insurance provider.

In general, it’s best to leave asbestos removal to the experts. Contact Yoder Home Services for the safe removal of asbestos that’s become unsafe or made your home uninhabitable. Many homeowners policies cover the asbestos removal under certain conditions and will save you money when it comes to getting rid of your asbestos problem. Asbestos removal restores air quality and reduces the risk of developing sicknesses and disorders from breathing its fibers. Be proactive and take action.

Surprisingly yes, there is no law that says homeowners can’t remove asbestos themselves. Generally speaking, different states have different rules and regulations for this kind of work. If you have any questions at all, please contact us.
