Asbestos duct removal is necessary for homes where asbestos ducts were used in the heating and air conditioning systems. As with any asbestos management, however, it’s crucial to have a professional do the removal job to reduce asbestos exposure for you and your family.
What Are Asbestos Ducts?
Back in a time when asbestos was seen as the “next best thing” it was used to insulate air conditioning and heating ducts in homes.
Unfortunately, as we now know, asbestos poses many serious health risks to those exposed to it. Consequently, many homeowners are looking to have any asbestos ducts removed from their homes to prevent the possibility of asbestos air contamination.
How is Asbestos Duct Removal Done?
Asbestos duct removal techniques vary from project to project depending on what is to be done with the home next.
For some homeowners, when an entirely new duct system is being installed, old uncontaminating ductwork can simply be left as it is and new ducts can be built around them. This prevents asbestos from contaminating air ducts since the old ducts aren’t being used.
In other cases where asbestos contamination has already begun, asbestos abatement companies like ours may remove the old ductwork completely. When we do this, we do it one section at a time to reduce the chance of air contamination.
In some cases, asbestos-containing ducts can be removed, cleaned, and repurposed. In this case, it’s particularly important for ducts to be thoroughly cleaned before being reused. This job should never be done by anyone except a professional!

As we mentioned above, asbestos removal of any kind should never be done by anyone except for a professional asbestos abatement professional.
