Asbestos was put into a variety of building products and if your property was built before the year 2000 then it could possibly contain some asbestos containing materials.
That is not to say that your home is dangerous. Left undisturbed asbestos does not cause harm to building occupants and if you know where it is in your home then you can ensure that it is kept in good condition.
Common products containing asbestos include textured coatings (artex), ceiling panels, fireplace panels, panels to the underside of stairs, floor tiles and bitumen adhesives, bitumen acoustic pads to sinks and baths, toilet cisterns, cement garage roofs, cement fascia and soffit panels, cement roof undercloaking and cement gutters/downpipes. However it is important to note that all of these products have non-asbestos versions too.
