Asbestos can be a hazard to health and for this reason its use has declined considerably in recent years.
But don’t worry – if asbestos is well maintained, it does not present a hazard. It is only the inhalation of loose asbestos fibres which can cause problems.
Asbestos in Metropolitan properties
There is a register of all asbestos found in communal areas providing access to flats.
If we have advised you that some elements in your home contain asbestos, take care to ensure these materials are not disturbed. If they do become disturbed or damaged, do not sweep or vacuum any of the debris as this will lift dust into the air – causing a risk to your health.
