If you think your home, garage or outbuildings may contain asbestos, check the panels are well sealed or painted over and that they are not broken and surfaces are not exposed. If all of the above has been accounted for, they should present no immediate danger. However, if paint is flaking away, or panels have been chipped, broken, or damaged as a result of DIY or other maintenance work, then further advice should be obtained.
Further information can be found at the Health & Safety Executive website. Do NOT try and remove suspect asbestos panels yourself without taking advice.
