Rid your property of hazards with safe & thorough asbestos ceiling removal in Manhattan Beach 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 Manhattan Beach 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 Manhattan Beach CA
In order to determine if you need popcorn ceiling removal, you’ll need to consider the following three points:
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?
If your popcorn ceiling could become damaged (during a remodeling project for example), you should get asbestos ceiling removal in Manhattan Beach CA right away to eliminate this risk.
