Asbestos is a word we’re all probably fairly familiar with – and even if we don’t know what it is exactly, we do know that it has dangerous connotations.
We might also associate the prevalence of asbestos with the workplace – public buildings, factories and the like, but the truth is, the use of asbestos before 1985 was commonly used in the building of homes as well.
While it’s no longer used here in the UK, if you live in an older property, it’s worth being mindful of asbestos – and where you might come across it in your home.
