Unusual place for Asbestos

Unusual place for Asbestos

Asbestos products were widely used in domestic construction during the 20th century, and surprisingly were not banned in such situations until 1999!

Here is a cold water storage tank in a 1950s bungalow. It is evidently made of cement asbestos and does pose a health and safety risk.

We recommend it is disconnected and preferably removed. A Licensed Asbestos Removal contractor should be used for such work.
