Where are you likely to find asbestos?

Asbestos can still be found in many products across Yorkshire, with any building built before the year 2000 having a chance of containing asbestos. 

The types of materials where you might commonly find asbestos are listed below - 

  • Asbestos cloth, rope and string
  • Asbestos cement sheets and roof tiles
  • Wallboards
  • Ceiling Tiles
  • Ovens and furnaces
  • Floor Tiles
  • Mastics and sealants

For more information on where you can find asbestos, read our FAQs page. We highly recommend getting in touch with us if you suspect a product could be an asbestos containing material or if you would like more information on what may contain asbestos around the building. We can provide an asbestos survey and then arrange for the asbestos (if proven from the survey) to be safely removed from the property.
