Asbestos abatement is not a DIY project
Here are the facts to hopefully help you recognize that asbestos removal projects in Southern California should be left to licensed asbestos abatement professionals.
If you have a certified asbestos survey that shows you have asbestos in your house or building, you may be thinking, “I can fix this asbestos problem myself.”
While technically within the law, a homeowner could remove their own asbestos BUT they could not lawfully hire any help. Like so many areas of California regulation that is not the only consideration. Now that you have proudly removed asbestos materials yourself, how would it be legally transported and disposed of? The short answer is it can’t. A homeowner would not have access to the proper protective gear, and equipment, specialized bagging, regulated labeling, nor would they be licensed and insured to transport a hazardous material on our roadways.
Many homeowners have sadly discovered after doing removal themselves, that the cost of getting the waste in proper containers, labeled manifested and decontamination work it actually costed far more than having it done professionally from the start.
A business owner can never remove the asbestos themselves even if they own the building. They would hire us to remove the risk of exposure to asbestos dust before they begin a demolition, renovation or remodeling project.
