Where am I likely find asbestos in my property in Pontefract?

Asbestos was used extensively across the construction sector for many years until it was fully banned from use in the UK in 1999 because of the health risks it poses to people who breath it in. Asbestos has excellent fire protection properties, is good at insulating, whilst also being strong and cheap, so its no surprise it was utilised so widely.

Examples of some of the most common places we find asbestos in commercial properties includes -

  • Asbestos cement sheets
  • Ceiling and floor tiles
  • Lagging (insulation on pipes)
  • Cladding
  • Textured coatings such as Artex
  • Sprayed on coatings
  • Partitions

The above examples show just how varied asbestos can be used across a property. The HSE have a graphic which shows some other common areas asbestos can be found within industrial settings.

Understanding what is and isn't asbestos can be tricky, which is why it is best to talk to an expert who can undertake an asbestos survey and create and execute an asbestos removal project if required.
