Is it likely that my Barrow-in-Furness industrial property will have asbestos in it?

Asbestos is still in a lot of properties across the country, simply because it wasn't fully banned from use within the construction sector until 1999. That means if the property you manage or own was constructed before the Millennium, then it potentially has asbestos containing materials in or around it.

Presume the building contains asbestos unless you know for sure it doesn't.

We find asbestos all over older properties, however some of the more common areas we find it when conducting asbestos surveys include -

  • Loose fill insulation
  • Asbestos insulation board (AIB)
  • Lagging on boilers and pipes
  • Cold water tanks
  • Panels in fire doors
  • Floor tiles
