Asbestos tile removal costs an average of $3,250 with costs ranging from $1,500 to in excess of $5,000 for the US in 2020. Read on to learn more.
An inspection will most likely be needed and a report made to a third party company so levels of asbestos can be confirmed. Once that is done, the contractor usually starts by installing plastic sheets and air equipment to lower air pressure. This helps to prevent fiber dispersal.
The material must be kept wet and double bagged or stored in appropriate plastic sheeting designed for the task, All workers must be certified in the proper manner for the removal of asbestos, just not those working directly with it.
No official standard for safe levels in homes have been set by the EPA or others but a general standard is that they’re below .01 asbestos fibers per cubic centimeter of air (0.01 f/cc). All waste material will be properly labeled and disposed of in a landfill that accepts asbestos waste.
Various factors impact the average cost you’ll pay, including where you live, how many licensed remediation companies operate in your area, and the size of your home and amount and location of the tile or flooring. Other factors include the the type of material you’re having removed, and the condition it is in and how it was originally installed.
Like any renovation work, different contractors will likely give you wildly varying bids for the same job, taking into account all of the above as well as a simpler factor that often comes into play: how much do they think you’ll pay.
