Asbestos testing will highlight whether materials in your property contain asbestos, or are entirely made from asbestos. As the building trade extensively used this hazardous material between the 1950s and 1980s, there’s a lot of it out there, and if it becomes damaged or you attempt to remove it yourself, the dust created can lead to serious lung problems like asbestosis that are often fatal.

If you suspect you have a problem with asbestos, contact a professional asbestos contractor in Liverpool to survey the area, and if they discover that there is a threat to health, they can advise you of safe ways to get it removed and disposed of correctly. Common areas to contain asbestos include fireproofing materials, decorative areas such as artex ceilings and external buildings such as sheds and garages that may have asbestos in the roof.
