Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented that there is a possibility of damaged blue asbestos ceiling boards present in building. Why would there be asbestos?

Fears relating to asbestos are not uncommon. Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material. Some types are found in the building materials e.g. fireplace. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in fire doors. Most asbestos was imported from Canada.

All forms are dangerous and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a solitary fibre is not deadly.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to displace it and professional advice should be sought ASAP. Getting rid of it will be costly must always be carried out by professionals. Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos during the survey. Surveyors will note the risk of asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.
