Find a professional asbestos abatement company to assess your situation. Not handled properly, asbestos is understood to cause cancer in humans. Also, there are regulations on disposal of asbestos waste, too. The generally acceptable ways of dealing with asbestos-containing materials include: * Have a qualified abatement contractor remove it properly, * Have it enclosed so it cannot be disturbed, * Have it encapsulated (as special kind of paint-like coating) so it is not likely to be disturbed by minor events, * Leave it in place, keep it in good repair, educate everyone to avoid disturbing it, and inspect it at least annually to ensure it is not being disturbed.
