If you think there may be asbestos in your water tank or flue, call Goodbye Asbestos for safe asbestos testing, removal and disposal.
Asbestos cement was widely used in water tanks and flues in the 60s, 70s and 80s, as it is strong, cheap, alkali-resistant and acid-resistant. When it was discovered in the mid-80s that asbestos can be dangerous when the dust or fibre particles are breathed in, the law banned the use of it in building materials.
But some homes and commercial spaces that were built before then still contain asbestos – whether in water tanks, flues, roofs, ceilings or floor tiles. If you are worried about asbestos in your property, you can invest in expert asbestos surveys and removal to rid your water tanks and flues of the potentially harmful substance.
