Asbestos is extremely common in households built before 1999.
Legal requirements to remove or contain asbestos were not in place until 1999 in the UK, when it was outlawed and deemed dangerous, meaning most properties constructed between 1930 and 1999 contain asbestos.
It can most likely be found in:
- Walls (within the cement)
When it is dislodged or disrupted, the fibres released can be very hazardous to health. The pictures below show some examples.
