If you think you have asbestos in your home you should never attempt to remove it yourself.

Asbestos material that is in good condition and that you cannot easily damage is usually best left alone.

Any asbestos material in your home should be regularly checked to make sure it has not been damaged or started to degrade.

Asbestos material must be disposed of responsibly and safely. You should never put asbestos products into your household waste or recycling bins.

Disposing of asbestos

If your property contains textured coatings, such as Artex, then doing small DIY jobs around the home can present a small risk to your health. More information on Asbestos can be found on the Health and Safety Executive website.
