Asbestos safety

Asbestos was widely used in the construction industry from the 1950s through to the mid-1980s. It was officially banned in the UK in 1999, so if your home was built or refurbished after 2002 it should not be present. If your home is older than this, please don’t worry. 

Asbestos can be found in many buildings and was used in a variety of building materials. Left undisturbed, asbestos poses little danger; therefore it should not be a cause for concern. However, we would like to remind you not to make alterations to your home (including drilling into walls, ceilings and floors) without prior approval.

We have also produced a Guide to asbestos safety which you can download below.
