These textured ceilings are often found in bedrooms and hallways for its sound dampening properties. It was also often used because it could easily hide imperfections on ceilings. These were popular in the second half of the 20th century, all the way up until the eighties. In 1978, asbestos was banned in ceiling treatments by the EPA’s Clean Air Act of 1978, which lead to a drop off of popularity. However, any existing inventories were allowed to be sold and used in manufacturing, which lead to asbestos-containing ceilings all the way into the 90s.
Get your textured popcorn artex ceiling tested
If you are looking at a new home or re-plastering a ceiling in your own home, the first advice is to get it tested. If there’s no asbestos, it will be much cheaper to remove, and if there is asbestos, it is very dangerous to remove.
