Have you ever worried about safety of any flue pipe in your house in terms of asbestos?

The use of asbestos in flue pipes is mostly unknown for people, fortunately there are companies like Blue A Ltd which specialises in removal and disposal of asbestos, and identifying the types of asbestos in many construction elements like insulation boards, corrugated sheets, soffits, lagging insulation, shingles, floor and vinyl tiles, piping and roofing materials, as well as in aforementioned flue pipes (for example in water heating installation, or furnaces or fireplaces, especially in the chimneys).

Why you should be concerned about asbestos containing materials in flue pipes?
Many of flues were built of materials that contain this toxic set of minerals. In most houses flue pipes are placed within different sorts of heating insulation. Nowadays, not many people think about them as treacherous, and that is justifiable, of course. Yet, prior to 1999 many of flue pipes were made of asbestos containing materials or were insulated by them. Over the years, this elements decay, and fibrous types of asbestos may crumble and become airborne, which is why people living close to it start to face a threat to their health posed by friable and inhalable fibres of asbestos.
