As long as these are in good repair and not showing any signs of damage or a break, it is best to leave them alone.
Regularly inspect the walls and ceilings containing asbestos checking for signs of damage or deterioration.
If there is an area of asbestos which is posing a danger and you want to attempt to remove it yourself, keep the following in mind:
- Is the area still in good repair and if so, is it best to leave it undisturbed?
- Is it possible to address the problem with a solution other than removing the asbestos? Can you consider painting over the area or covering it with a non-asbestos product to permanently seal it?
- If you do decide to remove the asbestos yourself, are you aware of all the governing rule and safety precautions and can you abide by them?
- Would it be better to hire a professional asbestos removal company instead of trying to do the removal yourself?
If you believe you can do the asbestos removal yourself, then remember this advice:
- Never use power tools when working with asbestos.
- Never use any type of abrasive sanding or cutting discs.
- Never use compressed air around asbestos since this may cause the fibres to fly about and increases the chance they will be breathed in by someone.
- Never use a high-pressure hose either for the same reason as above.
- Never walk on an asbestos roof without safety equipment because there is a real risk of falling through.
- Never leave any asbestos products or waste lying about. Always properly dispose of all asbestos waste and any leftover product.
If you are facing an area containing loose asbestos or an area wth extensive asbestos damage, it may be a better idea to hire a professional asbestos removal company to perform this removal.
