Rid your property of hazards with safe & thorough asbestos ceiling removal in Santa Clarita CA
Sometimes called popcorn ceilings or cottage cheese ceilings, that bumpy stuff covering the ceilings of your bedroom or hallway was probably installed with the aim of reducing noise and hiding ceiling imperfections. Unfortunately, it may contain asbestos, especially if it was installed between the 1950s and the 1980s. Considering that asbestos is known to cause serious diseases including lung cancer and mesothelioma, it’s no surprise that asbestos ceiling removal in Santa Clarita CA is a top concern for many homeowners.
How to Tell If You Need Popcorn Ceiling Removal in Santa Clarita CA
If you suspect you may need popcorn ceiling removal in your home, ask yourself these three questions:
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?
If your popcorn ceiling could become damaged (during a remodeling project for example), you should get asbestos ceiling removal in Santa Clarita CA right away to eliminate this risk.
