Testing Popcorn Ceilings For Asbestos

The spray-on texture applied to ceilings known as “popcorn ceiling” or “cottage-cheese ceiling” was popular in California from the 1950’s to the 1980s. During that time period asbestos was a commonly used building material, and popcorn ceiling could contain as much as 10% asbestos. Titan Environmental Solutions has years of experience testing homes and businesses in all of California for asbestos. Exposure to asbestos may increase the chances of illness including lung cancer, mesothelioma, and more.

Asbestos Assessment
Asbestos can be found in a variety of areas such as popcorn ceilings, floor tiles, drywall and pipes and can be released in the air during renovation and construction activities can increase the chances of health complications. Asbestos is a silicate mineral and carcinogen which contains fibrous crystals.
The most dangerous asbestos types include Amosite and Crocidolite. Due to its durability and resistance to heat, asbestos has been used in thousands of products including brake pads, roofs and piping.
