Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous material which was regularly used in buildings until the late 1990s. It was widely used as an insulation and fire proofing solution. In particular, it found its way into many products including ceiling tiles, pipe insulation, boilers, sprayed coatings and garage roof tiles.
It is still found today in many buildings, including homes, schools, offices and hospitals. If disturbed, it can be a killer. Inhaling loose asbestos fibres is known to cause several serious and even fatal lung diseases and it was finally banned in 1999.

Never try to inspect or remove asbestos yourself. Without the right equipment and correct safety gear you are unnecessarily putting yourself in harm’s way. Additionally, disturbing products that contain asbestos can release the fibres into the air increasing the area of contamination and level of exposure.
Chrysotile – Known as white asbestos. The fibres are soft and fine which can resist high temperatures. Chrysotile was banned in the UK in 1999.
Amosite – Known as brown asbestos. The fibres are spikey and have good tensile strength. Used mainly between the 1920s and the late 60s. Amosite was banned in the UK in 1986.
Crocidolite – Known as blue asbestos. The fibres are like needles and are the strongest. Crocidolite has been used since the 1880s and was finally banned by the Asbestos (Prohibitions) Regulations in 1985
