    Phew! I'll sleep better now. Meanwhile UK folk be on the lookout for lurking azzy. I remember being assaulted by an errant piece of falling azzy soffit board once. Dangerous stuff.

    Anyone else genuinely interested can Google "asbestos in vermiculite".

    Goodbye.

    Not absolutely correct - a friend of mine (a decco) died a few years back of mesothelioma. They reckon it was contracted because of the amount of old Artex ceilings and walls he'd dusted-off with his little dusting brush over the years. Nasty way to die, but no real clouds of dust. Then what about the wives and kids of men who worked in industry and brought the dust home on their work clothes which were then washed and hung in the home..... I have installed Asbestolux fire boarding - where we hand sawed, used no masks and came home every day white form head to foot - so should I worry? (Answer: I don't - if it gets me, it gets me, but I take a lot more care these days)
