Prior to the 1970’s asbestos was extensively used as a material in domestic properties and in other items used in homes, such as carpet underlay and even ironing board pads. Asbestos is made up of microscopic natural minerals that are naturally fire resistant and flexible. It was not until the 1990’s that it was finally banned from use. However by this time the majority of domestic properties had asbestos material in place. In most cases if the asbestos is left untouched it will not cause any harm. It is only when the asbestos material is disturbed, for example during a renovation that the asbestos can become a hazard to your health. Here is a list of some common applications of asbestos in Domestic Buildings:


  • Garages and Sheds (roof or side panels)
  • Chimney pots (Cowls)
  • Building roof tiles
  • Cement in outbuildings
  • Felt roofing
  • Damp proofing


  • Pipe insulation
  • Packers
  • Splash back boards
  • Ceiling tiles
  • Floor tiles
  • Stair nosing
  • Sink pads
  • Bitumen
  • Fuse boxes
  • Interior doors
  • Floor tiles
  • Loft paneling
  • Artex ceilings
  • Stair boards
  • Internal walls
  • Floor & ceiling voids

If you are carrying extensive renovation to your domestic property we can arrange to carry out an asbestos survey. An asbestos survey will minimise risk to the contractors working on the property as well as the occupants. This is particularly important if removing walls or ceilings, we can make the area safe to work in.

If you are renovating a property to rent, remember that a Landlord is under a ‘duty of care’ to ensure that a risk assessment is carried out and can be prosecuted for failing to do so. Also a landlord can be guilty of a criminal offence if anyone is exposed to a risk from asbestos.

If you suspect that there may be asbestos present in your property it is important to get in touch with ICE Asbestos immediately. A member of our specialist team will come out to assess the situation and advise on the best course of action. There are a number of techniques including asbestos removal and asbestos encapsulation, which can be used to minimise the risk to your health.

If required our emergency call out team can be sent out to assess the situation.

Rich West -

After a standard, non specific and vague comment on a house valuation about care needing to be taken around possible asbestos in an old property, I was thrown into panic. Tony and his colleague came around at short notice and assured me that I had absolutely nothing to worry about. It was so reassuring and refreshing to be dealt with in such a fair and reasonable manner. ICE were the right people to call and I recommend them unreservedly. Thank you.

Mary Derbyshire -

Tony and his team have been on site and have carried out an assessment of the work needed to remove some asbestos containing material from a domestic setting. Ahead of the actual treatment work being carried out I can say that I am extremely pleased with how the assessment was carried out. They were punctual, friendly and gave a very honest assessment - being open about areas where they didn't think there as any risk as well as where there was risk. I've received test results which confirms t...

Many thanks for your very efficient and professional service. We contacted the company Monday, a representative came Tuesday morning and we had the lab. result that afternoon. Excellent service.

Gill and Steve Hawkins -

Tony came out in the evening as I was concerned that I had artex containing asbestos. He was so helpful and said it's definitely not asbestos and not to worry. He didn't even charge me for the advice as he could clearly see it was not the case. He was so helpful and trustworthy, it would have been easy for him to take money from me and he didn't. It's great to meet someone with such integrity, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. Thanks Tony!
