Even though you can do endless research about the topic and buy the safest equipment and gear for the job of textured coating asbestos removal and figuring out the way of how to dispose the collected asbestos waste from the property you would be just exhausted in the end. Plus it would take a lot of time from you.
But most importantly you are risking your health. If something goes wrong during the process than you end up with a risk of developing cancer in your lung or other organ because of that silly decision you made. Is it worth it? Artex Removal is a non licensed work but we recommend ask for a licensed contractor due to their higher level of safety and efficiency.
A licensed contractor will provide asbestos certificate after any kind of asbestos removal work. The certificate is an evidence of complete asbestos removal and safety disposal. Keep the certificate and better to make a digital copy of it.

Is artex the same as asbestos sprayed insulation?
Asbestos sprayed insulation is completely different from the artex's decorative finish. The sprayed insulation is a loose fill mixed with a binding agent and has a really high, over 80% loose asbestos mineral component. So much more toxic and very easily disturbed even by the wind. The texture looks so much stronger.
Do's and Dont's with artex by the law?
It is not illegal to have asbestos in your home, yet don't even need to remove it unless it's damaged or presents a risk of asbestos exposure. If you aware the presence of asbestos in your home you need to keep in mind and let the new owner know about it once you decide to sell the property.
