Assist FM | Asbestos Surveys, Asbestos Removal and Testing

Asbestos Removal and Asbestos Surveys

My shed roof.

While giving my shed its yearly clean i  have discovered broken roof tiles, and they could be asbestos. I think its time to get the lads from Assist FM to take a look and do some asbestos testing.

Asbestos Roofing can be dangerous!

This incident with my shed roof has got me thinking about what else there could be around the house, as the building was erected in the 1950s when asbestos was widely used in building construction.
The sheets are distinguishable as a hard grey coloured material in which asbestos has been mixed with cement. It is likely that if the sheets have been used on my shed roof, similar flat sheets could have been used for wall cladding. Many old wall coating materials contained an asbestos mix to create a textured finish. Many floor tiles were manufactured in a similar way with asbestos present. 

Now be a good time to start looking around family and friends in the neighbourhood to see if there is any asbestos present in their homes. If like me you are worried about the presence of asbestos in your home, why not get a asbestos survey  from Assist FM.
