Asbestos has always been surrounded by ambiguity, and it was commonly used in the building industry up until it was finally banned in the late 1990s for being harmful.
The most popular use for asbestos is in insulation and roofing materials, predominantly in outbuildings and garages.
However, it can be found in other areas of your home including ceiling panels, wall panels, soffits, some artex type coverings and floor tiles. Asbestos products such as these can become a serious health risk when they are disturbed by sanding, drilling or sawing.
