One of the easiest ways to cut costs on your home remodeling project is to do parts (or all of it) yourself. Especially if you enjoy doing those projects, it may even amount to a fun couple of weekends.
But, asbestos removal is certainly not one of those projects you would want to undertake on your own just to save a couple of bucks. Not to mention, the time it would take and the materials you would need to buy to do it safely and legally would put you pretty close to the same amount of money you would pay a professional to do it more quickly, more efficiently, and do a better job.
If you think that you have asbestos in your home, have a professional test it. Then, they can advise you as to whether that particular site can be sealed (which is a much safer option) or if it needs to be removed.
Use a knowledgeable contractor who has been in the industry for several years. They know the regulations and laws and they know how to follow them. You can also find more information at the following places: Environmental Protection Agency and National Demolition Association.
