Is it likely that my property in Birmingham is likely to have asbestos in and around it?

Asbestos was used for decades the UK due to its insulating properties, as well as being resistant to heat. However due to its relationship with long term lung diseases it was fully banned from use in the UK in 1999, so if you're property was built or renovated before the year 2000 then you should assume that it could contain asbestos containing materials, unless you know otherwise because you have had an asbestos survey carried out.

Some common examples of where we find asbestos when carrying out an asbestos survey on industrial properties, includes -

  • Lagging, which is used as insulation on pipes
  • Guttering and downpipes, as well as chimney flues
  • Floor and roof tiles
  • Sprayed on coating on beams, ceilings and walls
  • Asbestos cement sheets
  • Artex, which is a textured coating that was used in decorating
  • Asbestos panels in fire doors
  • Asbestos insulation board (AIB)
  • Loose fill insulation

We have a page of wider examples where asbestos can be found and the HSE also has a visual which may be of help.

If have any concerns at all that you have asbestos at your industrial property in Birmingham then you should get in contact with an asbestos removal company like ourselves who can swiftly deal with it by encapsulation or removal.
