The ceiling fan in my bathroom is playing up, so I removed it.
Looking inside the roof above the hole I saw the following:
It looked like a big clump of dust so I grabbed it and it felt quite soft. I am probably being paranoid but is there any chance this could be asbestos? I know soft asbestos is used as insulation but would I find it so close to the plasterboard like that?
The house was built in 1964 (in Australia).
