The enemy within: Where asbestos can be found

Asbestos can found in any home built before 2000 and is hidden in various parts of a property, some obvious and some less so.

Be aware of the potential for asbestos in the following areas:

  • Panels in fire doors
  • Asbestos cement water tank
  • Loose fill insulation
  • AIB ceiling tiles
  • Toilet seat and cistern
  • Partition walls
  • Vinyl floor tiles
  • Around boilers
  • Textured coatings on walls and ceilings
  • Panels in fire doors
  • Free call-outs and estimates
  • Lagging on boilers and pipes

Asbestos can also be found on many external parts of a home dependent on whether asbestos was used in the manufacturing of materials used.

Look out for asbestos in:

  • the roof
  • panels
  • the soffits
  • the chimney flue
  • the gutters and downpipes
