Identifying asbestos can be difficult and if you suspect it is in or around your property in Preston and you are the landlord or duty holder then it is your responsibility to manage the asbestos. Get in touch with one of our asbestos experts and we can provide guidance on what the most suitable next steps are to first survey the property before removing the asbestos if it is present.
Where am I likely to find asbestos within my property in Preston?
Asbestos was used widely in the construction industry in the UK until it was fully banned in 1999, meaning that if your property was built before the year 2000 then you should assume that asbestos containing materials could have been used partly in the construction of the property.
Common examples of where we find asbestos when carrying out asbestos surveys on industrial properties include -
- Lagging on boilers and pipes
- Asbestos cement that can be found on guttering and downpipes
- Asbestos cement sheets
- Loose fill insulation
- Sprayed on coatings
- Floor and roof tiles
This page is a good example of how varied asbestos can appear across a property.
