Asbestos dust everywhere in the house

I recently bought an old house and am on my way to making it amazing. The first part of this project involved a fairly extensive electrical rehab to remove the old knob and tube. This was done by a contractor due to the size of the project and my need to work. I found several licensed electricians with good reviews, got quotes, and got to work. They are still working on it now, although the demolition is nearing completion. I took some material for an asbestos kit and found that it contains 2% chrysotile asbestos. There is dust everywhere and I really don’t know what to do next. Fortunately, we only moved a couple of things, including a couch and a TV. Can someone help me plan the next step here? Do I need an asbestos mitigation expert? Is it the electricians’ problem for not checking for asbestos early on and taking steps to mitigate it? This looks bad here and I’m not sure if I can clean it myself. Other posts I’ve read here seem to imply that you can clean this up yourself with proper mitigation methods. Any thoughts if this is a wise course of action is appreciated.
