Business & investment Asbestos

Domestic asbestos

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. There should be no immediate danger if you follow these steps. 

However, if paint is flaking away, or panels have been chipped, broken, or damaged as a result of DIY or other maintenance work, then seek advice.

Further information can be found at the Health & Safety Executive website. Do not try and remove suspect asbestos panels yourself without taking advice.

Contact us if you have concerns about the disposal of asbestos waste.
