Would this lining paper contain asbestos?

Postby NightShadow1991 » Fri Jul 14, 2023 2:55 pm

Hi All, we love in a house pre 1918 built. My dad was removing lining paper due to damp and black mould areas, would this likely contain asbestos? If so we will get someone in asap.

Thanks in advance.

Can't put any photos on as this website is useless and doesn't allow large file sizes. Any idea how I can send?

Hi nightshadow1991,
The only way to determine if there is asbestos is to send a sample off to a testing lab. Have a look online and you will find a number of companies who can do this for you and, for a fee, will supply a test kit so you can safely send them a sample.
Sorry you think this site is useless, if you go to the welcome page and scroll down there is an article on how to load images - hope this helps.
