Do You Have an Asbestos Ceiling?

Many ceiling plasters, insulations and tiles are made of materials that could contain asbestos. Vermiculite was often used for popcorn ceilings and was known to often be an asbestos containing material. Polystyrene ceilings most commonly do NOT contain asbestos, but unless you know exactly the type of ceiling you have, you should have it checked for asbestos.

How Dangerous is Asbestos in Ceiling Tiles and Plaster?

Popcorn ceilings and other ceiling tiles and plasters are prone to releasing fibers into the air when disturbed. And, of course, if the ceiling contains asbestos, those fibers will be emitted and could be inhaled or ingested. So, if you are removing or moving tiles, scraping, or repairing the ceiling, there is a probability of releasing fibers into the air.
