Rid your property of hazards with safe & thorough asbestos ceiling removal in Los Angeles 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 Los Angeles 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 Los Angeles 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?
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 Los Angeles 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 Los Angeles CA
