I gave my mate a hand ripping the old plaster off his wall in his 1920 (aprox) terrace house.
We started ripping the plaster off and created a lot of dust. We had dust masks on but just the basic type.
The plaster was imbedded on a black currugated lining that was nailed to the wall.
My question is,what possibilty could we have come into contact with any form of asbestos?
I know what some looks like but there are so many variations of it.
Did the old trades use it in the plastering process and would it be integrated into internal walls?
Does anyone know what that black corrugated 'rubbery type' sheeting was?
I am interested to find out. Has anyone encounted the same system and how did they satisfy their curiosity that it wasn't asbestos?
All information is greatly appreciated.
