The Law

Several governing bodies and regulations control how asbestos should be handled, including the EPA and OSHA. However, these federal restrictions, with the exception of those pertaining to disposal, do not apply to households of four families or fewer. Contractors should always adhere to these laws, though. There may also be state and local ordinances that apply even to owners of single-family homes. Check with your local authorities before working with asbestos-containing material.
