Rid your property of hazards with safe & thorough asbestos ceiling removal in Pasadena 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 the dangers of asbestos are well known, you may find yourself in urgent need of asbestos ceiling removal in Pasadena CA.
How to Tell If You Need Popcorn Ceiling Removal in Pasadena 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?
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?
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?
If your popcorn ceiling could become damaged (during a remodeling project for example), you should get asbestos ceiling removal in Pasadena CA right away to eliminate this risk.
