- Good News – we’ve had good results and happy customers
- Bad News – it may contain asbestos
So, first have several samples of your ceiling material sent to a testing lab (try the nice people at Hernly in Lawrence) for analysis.
- Positive Test (ceiling material contains asbestos) – You will have to collect a good portion of your Total Net Worth and call an asbestos abatement firm. Many people, at this point, decide that removal is no longer a priority.
- If the test sample contains no asbestos we’d be happy to discuss the options!
Give us a call – we’ll help you find the options that work best for your situation.
DIY removal is sometimes an option. There’s lots of good how-to information available. Just remember: this is very much a messy, low glamour sort of project. Some people have tried to short circuit the process and just paint over the popcorn to freshen it up. Bad Move – latex paint will loosen the popcorn and some of it will peel right off. Messy. Low Glamour.
