Asbestos ceilings are quite common in homes construction between the 1950’s and the 1980’s. Because of their heat resistant properties as well as being almost fire proof, asbestos products tended to be used in bathrooms, laundries and garages. If you think your ceiling is made from asbestos material, you need a professional ceiling asbestos removal team to identify and then remove it from your home.
How Can I Tell if My Ceiling Contains Asbestos?
It can be quite hard to tell if you need ceiling asbestos removal in your home, but one good indication is that you have a textured ceiling. These ceilings were popular between the 1950’s – 1990’s, and unfortunately often contain asbestos. If your home was built prior to 2003, there is also a small chance you may have an asbestos ceiling.
