Rid your property of hazards with safe & thorough asbestos ceiling removal in Fullerton CA
Popcorn ceilings, aka cottage cheese ceilings or acoustic texture ceilings, were quite popular from the 1950s to the early 1980s for their ability to dampen noise and hide imperfections. Unfortunately, most popcorn ceilings also contained asbestos to give them fire-retardant properties. Now that we know asbestos is hazardous to human health, asbestos ceiling removal in Fullerton 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 Fullerton 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?
Professional asbestos testing can tell you if your popcorn ceiling contains dangerous asbestos fibers or harmless paper or Styrofoam filler. Then you’ll know for certain whether or not you need 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. 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?
Even if your ceiling is not currently damaged, you may wish to invest in asbestos ceiling removal in Fullerton CA anyway in order to prevent future problems related to accidental or deliberate damage during children’s play or a renovation.
Why Hire a Professional for Asbestos Ceiling Removal in Fullerton CA
Due to legal restrictions, your only options for asbestos ceiling removal in Fullerton CA are to hire a contractor certified for this activity or to complete the removal yourself. Considering that completing an asbestos ceiling removal in Fullerton 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. You’re much better off hiring a professional such as AQHI Inc. who is guaranteed to complete the job safely.
