Popcorn Ceiling Replacement

Replacing or Removing Popcorn Ceilings That Contain Asbestos

Popcorn ceilings in Ogden homes and commercial buildings that were built prior to 1979 may contain asbestos and pose a health hazard to its occupants. Asbestos has been found to cause cancer and severe respiratory illnesses, and although the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) banned the use of asbestos in the manufacture of construction materials in 1978, but it allowed builders and construction companies to deplete their existing inventory. Because of this some homes built into the 1980’s also have popcorn ceilings that contain asbestos. Due to the health risks that are linked with asbestos, it is important to have a Certified Asbestos Abatement Company like the Disaster Company perform the removal of your popcorn ceiling.

The Disaster Company will work with an industrial hygienist and third party accredited laboratory to test your popcorn ceiling for the presence of asbestos. Upon receiving a positive result, we start asbestos containment and remove your popcorn ceiling according to EPA standards. After we have performed your asbestos abatement, we will have the rooms in which we performed the work retested to guarantee the health and safety of you, your family, your employees and your tenants.

While it may be legal to remove or replace a popcorn ceiling yourself, it is safer to have a Certified Asbestos Abatement Contractor perform the removal and clean-up. If done incorrectly, asbestos dust may become airborne and will settle into your skin and lungs, where it can remain for several years and cause serious health problems. Additionally, it is illegal to paint over a popcorn ceiling because the act of rolling paint has the potential of disturbing the asbestos. By allowing the Disaster Company to remove and replace your popcorn ceiling, you are safeguarding yourself and the occupants of your building against the harmful effects of asbestos.
