How does Teign Housing manage asbestos in my home?
We have a duty to manage asbestos in the communal areas of our buildings. We also carry out surveys in individual dwellings when a property becomes empty or before our contractors do some types of works in your property.
We have several options if we find asbestos and will pick the best one for your safety and to ensure any works in your property can be completed:
- Leave in place – often the best and safest option
- Encapsulation – this is where a special coating is applied to the material.
