If you suspect you have asbestos in your Sheffield property, what should you do?
Any property built or renovated in the UK before the year 2000 has the possibility to contain asbestos, as it wasn't banned from use until then, meaning that it still resides in many schools, offices, houses, factories and hospitals across Sheffield.
Examples of the types of places you can find asbestos include -
- Ceiling and floor tiles
- Artex, which is a type of decorative plaster
- Wall cladding
- Downpipes and gutters
- Lagging, which is used as insulation
We have a comprehensive list of where asbestos can be found on our FAQ page and the HSE have a visual guide, which shows the differences between where asbestos can be found in residential and commercial properties
Ultimately, if you suspect you have asbestos on your property then please get in touch with us and we can provide a survey of the property in Sheffield to confirm or deny if asbestos resides there, before creating an asbestos removal plan to complete the works.
