Majority of apartments built in the late 1930s through the 1990s have acoustic ceilings. Not only were they trendy but they were used to hide imperfections and to conceal bad drywall and mudding jobs.

This was until the EPA discovered that asbestos that was used in textured ceilings caused lung diseases including lung cancer. Although not all popcorn ceilings contain asbestos, many people still don't want these ceilings in their apartment. That's why most homeowners are replacing these ceilings with modern finishes.

Does The Popcorn Ceiling In My Apartment Contain Asbestos?

You cannot tell if a ceiling contains asbestos by the use of your bare eyes. You will need a microscope and trained personnel to do so. Just obtain a sample of your ceiling and send it to a lab that specializes in identifying asbestos. The results will be mailed back to you in a week's time

Testing For Asbestos

Here is how to test for asbestos in your ceiling.

  • Wear a respiratory mask
  •  Put on plastic gloves to avoid contact with the sample
  •  Fill a spray bottle with a teaspoon of soap and 16 ounces of water
  •  Spray a small area to dampen the ceiling
  • Use a sharp knife to scrape off a sample of your ceiling.
  • Send your sample to a lab and wait for about a week for results.
