What does asbestos look like?
Asbestos wasn't fully banned from use in the UK until the year 2000 so it is still commonly found within properties across the country. The HSE state that if your property was built before the year 2000 then you should assume that asbestos is in the building.
The Health and Safety Executive have a good visual on where asbestos is commonly found in commercial properties, however some of the most common areas it can be found include -
- Asbestos cement, which is common on asbestos water tanks, downpipes, guttering and wall cladding. Here are some examples of what it can look like.
- Loose fill insulation, which was used in wall cavities, under floor boards and loft spaces. Examples of what it looks like.
- Lagging, which was commonly used to insulate boilers and pipes. Examples of what it looks like.
- Textured coatings on ceilings and walls. Examples of what it looks like.
- Asbestos insulating boards which were used as fire proofing as ceiling tiles, partition walls and in fire doors. Examples of what it can look like.
As you can see, the variety of areas you can find asbestos in your commercial property in Scunthorpe is quite wide and it is important that if you suspect you have asbestos in or around your property that the appropriate action is taken.
