Asbestos FAQ:

Do I have asbestos in my home?
Asbestos was widely used in home construction from 1930 to around 2000, particularly from 1960 onwards. Houses/flats built around this time may contain asbestos materials. Properties built since the mid 80’s are unlikely to have asbestos in the fabric of the building and from 1990 extremely unlikely. Asbestos was outlawed in the UK in 1999.

Where is asbestos found in the home?
Asbestos was commonly used in many ways inside and outside of buildings:


Asbestos Cement (Water Tank)
Loose fill insulation (Loft)
AIB (Ceiling tiles, partition walls, panels in fire doors, around boilers)
Vinyl floor tiles
Textiles (Fire blankets)
Textured decorating coatings (Artex ceilings etc)


Asbestos Cement (Roof, panels, gutters and downpipes, flue pipes)
AIB (Soffits),
Is it safe to test asbestos suspected material?
Our kits are designed to enable you to safely take a sample from suspected material. They come with complete instructions and Personal Protective Equipment, which meets and exceeds HSE criteria. We do not recommend using our kits to test sprayed coatings, contaminated land or pipe lagging.

What can I test with this kit?

Our kit is designed to enable you to safely take samples from the following materials, to name but a few:

Textured coatings (Artex)
Corrugated cement roofs and asbestos sheets
Walls and boards
Thermoplastic floor tiles and their adhesive backings
Wall boards and HVAC lining panels
Soffit, fascia and rainwater goods
External cladding panels
Boiler flues and water tanks
And window sills to name but a few…

How much material do I need for a sample?

You only need to submit a small sample, we recommend material the size of a 20 pence piece per sample.

How long does it take for the results to come back?

Results are usually tested on the day they are received at the lab, usually the day after postage. Certificates will be emailed out the same day as results given.

What if the result is positive?

If the result comes back positive we can offer advice on how to proceed over the phone or put you in contact with a local asbestos removal company.

Is postage included?

All costs related to the kit and return of sample are included.

We deliver throughout the UK and standard delivery times are 2-5 working days. We try to exceed this delivery time wherever we can. We also offer a express delivery service when available giving a next working day service if ordered before 1 pm (10 am for Eco Solutions products). Confirmation of delivery will be made on receipt of the order. 

We will always try to exceed our stated delivery times where possible or dispatch orders for delivery on the next working day after our cut-off whenever possible. 

Our returns policy allows you to return any item if it is not what you require within 14 days of receipt. This is as long as it has not been used and is returned in its original undamaged packaging.


The DIY Doctor store is open and available for delivery orders.

Our range of products is reduced to focus on products that are essential, or safe to pick and dispatch. 

Delivery times will be extended by up to 5-7 days as we deal with orders while following government distancing guidelines. 

Bank Holidays

We do experience an increase in orders over Bank holidays which can lead to delays in processing orders. We will endeavour to dispatch all orders as quickly as possible. If there are any potential delays we will contact you directly to inform you.

Free Delivery:

Where products have been quoted as having free delivery or delivery included, this will not apply for Northern Ireland and the Highlands and Islands due to the excess delivery charges incurred reaching these locations. Delivery costs can be seen by entering your postcode into the basket. 

Why do we charge delivery?

A great many of our customers purchase multiple products, so if we build the delivery charges into each item we will in effect be charging delivery on every product in their basket. We think it is fairer to charge a single delivery cost for the contents of the whole basket once. Some products do have delivery included; this is typically because they are dispatched from another location, generally direct from the manufacturer, as there are restrictions to how they can be delivered due to their size, or if they are liquids, for example.
