What is popcorn ceiling texture?
Popcorn ceiling texture is the bumpy, “popcorn-like” texturing used in many homes on ceilings and sometimes even on walls. This texturing method became popular in the 1970’s because it made it easy to hide imperfections that can be found in ceilings and walls. It takes much more effort to get a drywall surface to be perfectly flat and level, making this option gain more and more attention. However, these days homeowners are moving away from popcorn ceilings and popcorn texturing due to its outdated appearance. In addition to the appearance of popcorn ceilings taking away from the overall appearance of homes, having popcorn ceilings in your home can also pose a threat to your health.
Is popcorn ceiling texture toxic?
Unfortunately, popcorn ceiling texture was popular at the same time that using asbestos in homebuilding materials was. According to Asbestos.com:
Any percentage of asbestos makes popcorn ceiling dangerous. Make sure nothing disturbs it, and decide whether you want to have it encapsulated or removed.
Removing asbestos popcorn ceiling requires many precautions. It’s a job best left to qualified professionals.
Popcorn ceiling is a friable material — meaning it is very easy to damage. Friable asbestos materials release toxic dust at the slightest disturbance. Inhaling asbestos dust is what can lead to serious diseases such as asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma.
