Popcorn Ceiling Removal – Why You Need it Done ASAP
Friday, May 26, 2017
West Palm Beach homeowners take great pride in their homes, and rightfully so. Yet some tasks are not just about appearance, they are about health and safety. These are the tasks that should take priority, above all else.
Cosmetic renovations should be considered less important than those projects which will help ensure that yourself and your loved ones will be healthy. This is where the topic of popcorn ceiling removal comes into the picture. While once an affordable and easy way to cover ceilings, it is now a technique that is rarely still used.
What You Need to Know
Popcorn ceilings are also referred to as acoustic ceilings and textured ceilings, although there are other forms of texturization that are not a risk. This is the cottage cheese looking texture that is sprayed into place. Some form of this has existed since the 1930s and was still commonly used all the way into the 90’s.
Here are a few other things that you should know about this type of textured ceiling:
Unfortunately, it often times contains asbestos. While that may not prevent you from buying a home with these types of ceilings, you should have them removed before occupying the home.
If you are currently in a home that already has this in place, you should have it tested immediately. Do not take chances with the well-being of yourself or your loved ones.
Not all popcorn ceilings contain asbestos. They discontinued use in 1977, when the EPA banned it. However, you should not take a chance. Make it a point to have your ceiling tested so that you can decide how to move forward.
