Do My Popcorn Ceilings Have Asbestos?

Manufacturing building materials with asbestos was banned by the Environmental Protection Agency in 1978 because asbestos was found to pose serious health risks such as cancer and respiratory disease. The law also allowed builders and construction companies to use existing inventory well into the 1980s. Because of this, if you own a home with popcorn ceilings, it is important to have a certified asbestos contractor test and remove it. Asbestos exposure can lead to:

  • Shortness Of Breath

  • Coughing

  • Chest Pain

  • Fatigue

  • Weight Loss

  • Pneumonia

  • Cancers

How Can Popcorn Ceilings Be Removed Safely?

Disaster Kleenup Specialists will have your popcorn ceiling tested for asbestos by an accredited laboratory. Upon receiving the results, we will set up a containment and follow EPA standards to remove the asbestos-contaminated ceiling. We will retest the area and obtain a clearance showing the ceiling is asbestos-free. Our seasoned construction team will then retexture and paint the ceiling, providing you with a safe environment and a beautiful new ceiling.

Although it is not illegal to remove a popcorn ceiling yourself, there are possible health risks in doing so, and it is a dirty and difficult job. If it is not done correctly, fibers can be released into the air and inhaled. It is also illegal to paint over a ceiling containing asbestos because spraying or rolling paint can disturb the asbestos and contaminate the entire room.
