Is it time to get your pipework checked?
Older houses with the boiler in the loft or cellar will have asbestos coated pipework and tanks. In many instances the pipework and tanks will have deteriorated to such a state that they release enormous amounts of airborne fibres that can cause devastating fatal diseases. Most of the time homeowners don’t even know these pipes and tanks are coated with asbestos. As lofts and cellars are often used to store items, including boxes and toys, these can then be brought back into the house, covered in asbestos fibres.
