Rid your property of hazards with safe & thorough asbestos ceiling removal in La Canada Flintridge 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 La Canada Flintridge 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 La Canada Flintridge CA
If you suspect you may need popcorn ceiling removal in your home, ask yourself these three questions:
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?
If the ceiling itself (not just the paint) is damaged, it may already be releasing dangerous asbestos fibers into your home. 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 La Canada Flintridge 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. This makes it even more important to follow strict safety protocols such as setting up a sealed work zone, using proper safety equipment for workers, filtering all air exiting the work zone, and decontaminating workers and bagged waste leaving the work zone.
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. Disposal is included in our bid for asbestos ceiling removal in La Canada Flintridge CA so you don’t have to worry about surprise surcharges when you work with us.
