Is my property in Widnes likely to contain asbestos?

If your property was constructed before the millennium then you should assume that the property could contain asbestos containing materials because the use of asbestos within the construction industry wasn't fully banned until 1999.

The HSE has a visual on where you can find asbestos around your property, however some of the common areas we spot it when carrying out an asbestos survey include - 

  • Insulating lagging which can be found around boilers and pipes
  • Floor and ceiling tiles
  • Asbestos insulation board within partition walls and fire doors
  • Asbestos cement which is commonly found on guttering, downpipes and on roofs

It can be difficult to determine what asbestos looks like because of the wide variety of asbestos containing materials that there are, which is why you should contact an asbestos removal specialist like ourselves who can operate on both licensable and non-licensable asbestos. We can provide an asbestos survey to determine if you have asbestos in or around your property in Widnes before actioning a plan to remove the asbestos safely, with the aim of creating minimal disruption to your business.
