Asbestos is a natural mineral found in rocks all over the world. Due to its heat and water resistance it was commonly used in the home.
Asbestos is not usually a problem if left undisturbed. However, if asbestos is damaged it can pose a risk to health. You should not disturb items that you think contain asbestos. If you are concerned about asbestos in your home please contact us.
