Safe as houses? Not always, sadly.
Asbestos of all types was banned in construction in 2000. But if your home was built before then, it may well contain asbestos.
Once prized as a miracle material, because of its heat resistant qualities, it was widely used around boilers, fireplaces, ceiling tiles, doors, stairwells and roofing.
Perhaps you’ve moved into a new home and you’re about to embark on ambitious refurbishment work which will entail knocking down partition or exterior walls, or dealing with roofing and gutters. This may well bring you into contact with asbestos, or worse still, lead to its disturbance. Once airborne, it’s an invisible killer, causing cancer and lung disease.
Put an end to uncertainty. Asbestos isn’t something to worry about so much as act upon.
A simple phone call is all it takes for peace of mind now and to avoid complications down the line.

14 million houses were built during the period asbestos was widely used in construction, according to the British Lung Foundation. Thankfully, the use of asbestos was banned in 2000.
