Asbestos is a natural material made up of tiny fibres. These fibres are usually safely fixed in another material like cement or insulation board, but they can be released into the air by cutting, breaking, drilling or sanding.
If you suspect that there is asbestos on your property or within another building, you can report it and have it tested before removal.
If the asbestos is on council housing land we pass your report to them.
If you need to remove asbestos there is guidance on how to safely have it removed. Do not break the asbestos up as it is harmless not broken up.
