What is Asbestos and where might I find it in my property?

What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a natural mineral made of small fibres. It was commonly added to products for strength, fireproofing, insulation and noise reduction. Most asbestos in housing is low risk and if it’s in good condition, it’s very unlikely to harm your health.

Where can I find asbestos in my property?

The Health and Safety Executive have produced a quick reference guide which shows where you could find asbestos in your residential property – www.hse.gov.uk/asbestos/building

If your property was built after the year 1999, it’s extremely unlikely there will be asbestos in your home
