Cost of Asbestos Removal

Asbestos being incredibly dangerous when airborne, inducing inhalation, which can later develop to cancer will naturally be expensive to remove. So, being such an important aspect of development to any building, very well trained professionals usually carry out the job. The Costs of Asbestos Removal can vary depending on several factors but mainly due to the amount of asbestos and how much the contractor wants to charge. An Asbestos Removal Grant is typically not available for  people unless it is under extreme conditions.

To provide rough estimates of such activities will give you an idea of the total expenditure you will require.

For example, if you wanted to have 10 feet of asbestos pipe insulation removed, the cost could vary from $400 to $700 (£200 to £400).

Again this varies depending on the contractor and how many of them are available within your area. Some contractors offer a minimum fee of $1500 to over $3000 (£700 - £1500) regardless of how small the job may be.

You could also get an inspection carried out by the 'White Lung Association' which could cost between $400-800 per 1500 square feet (will also include lab fees). If the lab work is completed separately, a single sample analysis could cost $25-75.

What you should do is get a certain company to analyse your work area to make recommendations about containing and removing the asbestos. Then you should get a second company to carry out the actual work, as in the asbestos abatement contract. Whatever area is being worked at, should be sealed off and kept separate from everywhere else, i.e. marked as a hazardous area. For further information on this, the Environmental Agency will provide details on this.


Completing asbestos removal by yourself is achievable however, is not recommended due to the dangers involved. You are not a professional, thus risks are greater for you and others around you. If you do decide to do this, read up on every possible source of information and get the necessary training.
