Asbestos in Unusual Places

Asbestos in Unusual Places

A cement asbestos flue pipe serving a gas fire as viewed from the roof space.

Commonly found in such situations and not a health risk in itself as long as it stays intact and is in good condition.

Inhalation of fibres and dust if damaged when being removed, for example, is what potentially causes health related issues.

A licenced contractor should be employed for any removal works proposed.
