Rid your property of hazards with safe & thorough asbestos ceiling removal in West Covina 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 West Covina 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 West Covina 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?
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. These fibers can travel on air currents far from the room with the damaged ceiling, so it is vital to get acoustic ceiling removal to correct the situation ASAP.
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 West Covina CA right away to eliminate this risk.
