Asbestos is a natural material that is mined and processed. It’s used in many different construction materials. There are 3 commercially used asbestos: Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue).
Asbestos was commonly used until the late 90s. It’s very common to find asbestos within homes across the UK. If the asbestos-containing materials are in good condition, it can remain in place and pose no risk to human health
