Popcorn Ceiling Asbestos – Why Hiring A Professional Is Recommended


Before 1989, builders often used asbestos-containing materials in house construction. The finish on ceilings was an area in particular where this was used. This finish could be stucco (popcorn), swirls or other designs added to the ceiling after the drywall or plaster was installed. Fast forward to today, and many of these homes still have textured ceilings that contain asbestos. Since asbestos is considered a hazardous material, inexperienced people should handle or remove these ceilings. For textured ceiling removal, it’s imperative to turn to a professional. Air Doctors, a leading source for textured ceiling removal in Toronto, can help.
