Rid your property of hazards with safe & thorough asbestos ceiling removal in Duarte CA
Many people don’t realize that those lumpy, bumpy textured acoustic ceilings found in many homes across the country may contain asbestos. In the past, these types of popcorn ceilings or cottage cheese ceilings were prized for their ability to dampen sound, conceal ceiling imperfections, and even inhibit the spread of fire due to the presence of asbestos. Now that the dangers of asbestos are well known, you may find yourself in urgent need of asbestos ceiling removal in Duarte CA.
How to Tell If You Need Popcorn Ceiling Removal in Duarte CA
By finding the answers to the following three questions, you can figure out if popcorn ceiling removal is a wise investment:
Is it really asbestos?
Not all popcorn ceilings contain asbestos. Some contain harmless paper or Styrofoam. In order to tell if you need cottage cheese ceiling removal, you may need to get professional asbestos testing.
Is the ceiling damaged?
Asbestos-containing materials don’t pose an active threat until they become damaged and release asbestos fibers. Because these fibers will be drifting down from the ceiling, they can easily travel on air currents and land throughout your home, making quick acoustic ceiling removal vital.
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 Duarte CA as a preventative measure.
Why Hire a Professional for Asbestos Ceiling Removal in Duarte CA
Due to legal restrictions, your only options for asbestos ceiling removal in Duarte CA are to hire a contractor certified for this activity or to complete the removal yourself. Considering that completing an asbestos ceiling removal in Duarte CA requires special equipment such as ventilators, safety clothing, and respirators, as well as meticulous attention to detail when sealing off the work area and containing the asbestos waste, you probably don’t want to handle it yourself and risk exposing yourself or others to contamination.

Because asbestos is officially considered a hazardous waste material, special precautions must be taken to transport and dispose of it in compliance with all relevant laws.
