Where can asbestos be found in my property in Middlesbrough?

Asbestos was used in new builds and renovations up until it was banned from use in the UK in the year 2000. Some of the places we commonly find it, include - 

  • Lagging on pipes and boilers
  • Asbestos Insulation Board (AIB)
  • Floor and roof tiles
  • Decorative plasters like Artex (which can look like this or this)
  • Down pipes and guttering
  • Loose fill insulation
  • Asbestos cement panels

The above are only a few examples to show you how diverse asbestos use was and how many areas it can be found around a property. The HSE has a good visual guide highlighting where you could find asbestos around your property with links to images showing what it can look like. 

If you are concerned that asbestos is in or around your property in Middlesbrough then please get in touch with us, so we can complete an asbestos survey and understand what type of asbestos is there, before creating a plan of action to safely remove the asbestos for you.
