Would Plaster Block Walls in 1957 Property Contain Asbestos?

Postby Beenierock » Mon Mar 26, 2018 7:57 pm


I have recently moved into a house built in 1957. We have done a bit of work already but have found that the internal walls are made of what seems to be plaster blocks with animal hair in. No one I know is familiar with the blocks so I am getting worried they might contain asbestos. If anyone can shed any light it would be gratefully received.

Pics attached.
