Where might asbestos exist?
Asbestos can be present in a variety of products, including
- Vinyl flooring
- Loose roof insulation
- Brick cladding
- Down pipes
- Ceiling tiles
- Sprayed textrured ceilings
As a general rule, if a building was built:
Between the late 1940s - 1980s: It is highly likely that you will find asbestos-containing products.
Between the late 1980s - late 1990s: It is likely to contain asbestos-containing products.
After 1999 It is unlikely to contain asbestos-containing products. However you will need to be aware as there may still be some materials or products present that do contain some asbestos, so testing is recommended if in doubt
