Suspected fibres in layers of old paint and paper

Post by Samuelcox » Sat Oct 21, 2023 4:09 pm

Pulled off damp stained paint layers and it revealed these layers of thin paper board with fibres in it. Any suggestions on what to do?
Fyi it's a 1970 council block in East London and we just bought it so unsure of its history.

Hi samuelcox,
It looks like the walls have been lined with hardboard. You could send a sample to one of the asbestos testing labs for confirmation it’s not asbestos.
