Default Re: Popcorn Ceiling

This is another reason why I designed my 64-page manual to go along with my report... To keep my clients well informed.

Taken from my manual.......

Today, the most common domestic materials (in your home) that may contain asbestos are

Furnace and Boiler blanket insulation
Stove and Flue pipe insulation
Tape at supply duct connections
Hot water Pipe insulation
Attic insulation (usually vermiculite)
Artificial ashes and embers for use in gas-fired Fireplaces
Roofing Shingles and Siding material
Linoleum floor coverings (usually the 9x 9 tiles)
Plaster patching compounds
Textured paints
Parts of some pre-1979 appliances (e.g. toasters, clothes dryers, hair dryers)
Asbestos was also used as a component of spray applied to textured ceilings. For many years, acoustic-ceiling texture cottage cheese ceilings was a standard feature in many homes, and until the late 1970's, asbestos was a common component of that material. Fortunately, this type of asbestos is not regarded as a significant health hazard unless it is disturbed.
