Rid your property of hazards with safe & thorough asbestos ceiling removal in Arcadia CA
Sometimes called popcorn ceilings or cottage cheese ceilings, that bumpy stuff covering the ceilings of your bedroom or hallway was probably installed with the aim of reducing noise and hiding ceiling imperfections. Unfortunately, it may contain asbestos, especially if it was installed between the 1950s and the 1980s. Now that we know asbestos is hazardous to human health, asbestos ceiling removal in Arcadia CA is one of the top three most common asbestos removal projects done by homeowners.
How to Tell If You Need Popcorn Ceiling Removal in Arcadia CA
In order to determine if you need popcorn ceiling removal, you’ll need to consider the following three points:
Is it really asbestos?
If your popcorn ceilings contain dangerous amounts of asbestos fibers built into the material used to create the texture, professional asbestos testing is the best way to confirm it and determine if cottage cheese ceiling removal is necessary.
Is the ceiling damaged?
If the ceiling itself (not just the paint) is damaged, it may already be releasing dangerous asbestos fibers into your home. These fibers can travel on air currents far from the room with the damaged ceiling, so it is vital to get acoustic ceiling removal to correct the situation ASAP.
Is it likely to become damaged?
Popcorn ceilings can get damaged if you decide to renovate or if a child throws a toy up to the ceiling and dislodges some of the bumps. In order to feel totally safe at home, you may want to get asbestos ceiling removal in Arcadia CA as a preventative measure.
Why Hire a Professional for Asbestos Ceiling Removal in Arcadia CA
Due to legal restrictions, your only options for asbestos ceiling removal in Arcadia CA are to hire a contractor certified for this activity or to complete the removal yourself.
