Hi guys I found some asbestos in my laundry room piping and in the front of my house where the circuit breakers Are i put plaster on the piping in my Laundry room but I have not touched the other room here are pictures of the laundry room finished with the plaster and here’s pictures of the other piping which have not touched do you suggest also plastering this piping? Or should I get a professional and just remove everything I’m not sure what to do I have little kids so I want to do the right thing thanks
Also in the front room where I have not wrapped the Asbestos yet I Think there’s some fragments that may have fell to the floor how would I vacuum this or clean this thank you0
Do you think I should just incapsulate it myself. Rather than remove right0
Officially, have a professional do it. If you get enough of it spread around you could condemn your house.
There is a mastic like paint they use to encapsulate it that is resilient that sticks it all together, that plaster is not going to do a good job of encapsulation and will make it harder to remove properly.
If you must disturb the stuff that has fallen to the ground, wet it down and wipe it up while wet, but you really should leave all of it to a professional.1
