Any kind of exposure to friable asbestos could result in getting life-threatening diseases. For that reason, we should not risk getting exposed to this dangerous material in any way we can.
If you have recently discovered that friable asbestos is present in your home and had it removed, the meticulous task of having every trace of asbestos dust removed should be your next step.
Removing asbestos dust should be done with extreme care and thoroughness to be 100% sure that not a single asbestos particle is left in your home. Sometimes, asbestos fibers could be really hard to see, so you have to be extra careful.
- To safely remove residual asbestos in your home, you have to prepare the proper cleaning accessories and protective clothing:
- Disposable overall clothing. Everything from your head to your toes should be well-protected. Make sure that your clothing is disposable because while it is possible to remove asbestos from your clothes through meticulous washing, simply throwing away any piece of clothing with asbestos will be a lot less stressful – and a lot safer.
- Your high-quality protective gloves should be taped to your wrists to make sure that no asbestos can make its way into your hands.
- Ideally, a full-face respirator is needed to successfully protect yourself from asbestos fibers. But as an alternative, you can also wear asbestos mask. Asbestos masks are created to protect you from asbestos, especially that common dust masks would not be sufficient to shield yourself from accidental asbestos inhalation.
- Disposable rags. Just like your clothing, if your cleaning materials such as rags are disposable, it will be a lot safer.
- Duct tape. Duct tapes are a great deal of help when it comes to sealing the gaps under your doors to prevent any asbestos fiber being blown away to another room.
