Hi gentleman and ladies... my suggestion is to hire abatement work out, especially if you have never done it. I am air quality control specialist and I do abatement work. If you absolutely feel you need to do this work yourself please follow these steps and you can find them anywhere.

1.) lay 6 mil poly sheeting on the floor where you plan on doing the asbestos removal, tape it together at the seals with duct tape.bring it about 12" up the wall and leave it loose enough so you don't tear it while your working.then lay a second layer that is nor sealed.

2.) cover the walls of the area with 3 mill poly sheet. again seal all seams with duct tape.

3.) make entrance exit, double sheet this wall cut a slit in it and take a piece5 feet wide and make a flap to cover the slit.

4.) outside the entrance make a containment room big enough for you to remove clothing that we will talk about in a minute

5. tools and safety gear you will need: Respirator with hepa filters( you should be fit test with this to ensure proper fit), rubber gloves, eubber boots, goggles ,tyvek suits with hoods and booties attached, rags, sprayer or spray bottle with water and 1/5 detergent, scraper and lots of plastic bags( 6 MIl contractor bags), and asbestos (labels), stickers.

6.)put on the rubber boots, and the gloves put on the tyvek suit hood down, tape suit to gloves and boots creating a seal, put on respirator and goggles then pull hood over respirator

7.) enter the room that you have made to do work in, bring all your tools with you

8.) thouroughly wet all tof the insulation that you will be scraping off and keep it wet.

as you remove pieces of the esbestos wrap dispose into plastic bags. when bags are full twist the tops fold the top in half and tape with duct tape , continue this process until you are completely done then wipe done all areas wear asbestos wasback your self out of the room into the containment area spray all of the disposal bags off thoroughly and set them outside the conatinment room on plastic go back into work room and spray walls then . take loose floor platic and dispose of in bags . step into contain ment bring the last of the garbage with ouy wet down and wipe garbage setting outside of room on platisspray yourself off completely and spray and wipe tools with clean rags setting them outside of room remove hood wipe gogles while on your face and respirator romove rubber boots and gloves and step out of room collapse containment folding from outside in word SLOWLY and do the same with the work room bags plastic remove your respirator and goggles throw your respirator cartridges in disposal bags and seal...label and bring to approve transfer or dump station... then you are done.... by the way depending on the individual and there health determines how much exposure can cause mesothelioma or lung just don't expose yoursel;f is the solution....
