Many popcorn ceiling treatments were manufactured using asbestos fiber, which was legal until the mid-1970s in most states. However, the asbestos-containing compound was still legal to sell until all stores were depleted, so if your home was built prior
to the mid-1980s, there’s a significant chance your popcorn ceilings contain asbestos.
Problems occur when these ceiling materials are disturbed. Dust particles containing asbestos can be inhaled, which is really bad for your lungs. Because of this, it’s important to have an asbestos test on your ceiling materials. We highly recommend that
you hire a licensed professional to remove asbestos containing materials.
