I bought my second home in the mid seventies and there was asbestos insulation on the steam heat pipes. Asbestos was just starting to get publicity at the time, and I was not aware of any regs, but I could see that it would be a good idea to get rid of it so I studied up on procedures. I used a spray bottle with soap solution to thoroughly wet each piece before removal and bagged it. The soap is important to help the water penetrate.

I"m surprised nobody has brought up drywall mud. In the late 70"s, different makers used to print "asbestos free" on the bucket for a sales pitch. My house was built in 62, so I sent a sample from an outside corner to a testing lab(no affiliation with any abatement companies)and it tested 5-10 percent. That"s a lot (in a 5 gallon bucket!) Most people think nothing of it, but I follow proper procedure when changing out window"s/door"s/etc
