Acoustical Ceiling Texture (popcorn ceilings)
You have just bought an older home or you have lived in a pre 90’s home for a while and your thinking about removing those outdated, ugly popcorn ceilings. You should have the “popcorn” texture properly sampled & tested for asbestos by a EPA/AHERA certified building inspector and the samples need to analyzed at a certified NVLAP laboratory for PLM analysis BEFORE you disturb or start the removal process.
Most people have the perception and assume that if their home was built in the late 70’s or 80’s that asbestos is probably not present in the popcorn texture. This assumption is wrong and could lead to a very expensive decontamination of the house and contents if the material is found to contain asbestos after the removal process has begun.
When it comes to asbestos and your health and the health of your family, it is always better to be safe than sorry – Have it Tested
