Hello everyone,

I am planning to start using an old fireplace and I am a little worried that the mortar lining around the chimney and on the back wall could contain asbestos. It is fairly brittle and it didn't take very much for a piece of the lining to come off unintentionally when I was cleaning the fireplace.

In your experience and based on the photographs, is there a risk that this material could contain asbestos? If so, what is the best way to deal with it?

Many thanks!
