Asbestos is a mineral fibre used in building materials and products used from 1950 to 2000. They have now been banned, and if your home was built after 2000 it is highly unlikely to contain asbestos.

Asbestos is safe if it is undamaged. It can become dangerous if the fibres are disturbed through age or DIY activity. When disturbed, it is harmful when breathed in.

Eastlight holds an asbestos register and are aware if asbestos is present in your home.

It is important to obtain permission from us (landlord's consent) before doing any work in your home. In addition, an Asbestos Survey may need to be carried out prior to any major refurbishment.
