Water to which a surfactant has been added must be used before and during removal of asbestos-containing material to prevent fibers from becoming airborne during asbestos-related work. All asbestos-containing material must:
be wet before removal;
be adequately wet during removal;
be placed and sealed in containers while adequately wet; and
not be allowed to dry.
A structure or object covered with asbestos-containing material must be:
removed intact or in large sections where possible;
wet before being sealed in six-mil clear polyethylene sheeting or comparable material;
wet during removal of the structure or object; and
lowered to the floor or ground and not dropped.
Waste containers must be sealed to prevent drying of the asbestos-containing material.
