Rid your property of hazards with safe & thorough asbestos ceiling removal in El Segundo 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 we know asbestos is hazardous to human health, asbestos ceiling removal in El Segundo 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 El Segundo 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?
A professional asbestos testing service can safely take a sample of your popcorn ceiling and tell you if it contains a high amount of asbestos content that necessitates cottage cheese ceiling removal.
Is the ceiling damaged?
In general, your ceiling is not posing an active risk to your health as long as it is intact. It’s only when the material becomes damaged and begins releasing asbestos fibers that you must be concerned. 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?
Even if your ceiling is not currently damaged, you may wish to invest in asbestos ceiling removal in El Segundo CA anyway in order to prevent future problems related to accidental or deliberate damage during children’s play or a renovation.

Safe acoustic ceiling removal can be challenging, especially if the material has been painted as this prevents wetting down the asbestos to limit fiber release.

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.
