Breathing in damaging asbestos fibres can be dangerous to your lungs.
Airborne asbestos fibres pose a serious health risk because they can cause lung cancer, asbestosis and mesothelioma.
Therefore, it is absolutely essential that asbestos is treated with care and that the removal and disposal of asbestos is carried out under properly controlled conditions.
- See our page on common types of household asbestos for more information on where it is likely to be found. Nearly all houses contain asbestos, as it was a common building material that was not deemed dangerous until 1999.
