Asbestos is a natural rock that is turned into fibres and previously used in building materials from the 1950s until the 1980s. 

While the dangers of asbestos are well documented, some older houses still have asbestos in them. Please note that this material is only harmful if distrubed or if it is in poor condition. 

Asbestos may be found in slates, corrugated cement sheeting, soffit boards, gutters/ downpipes, chimney flues, water tank trays, textured decorative coatings, wall and bath panels, plastic floor tiles, toilet seat and cistern, open fire/room heaters and pipe ducting.
