Textured Ceiling Removal Services
If your Auckland home has a textured ceiling, there’s a possibility that it contains asbestos. In homes built prior to 2000, it was common for asbestos to be mixed into the plaster to create the textured or ‘popcorn’ effect. If you're in need of textured ceiling removal in Auckland, Asbestos Busters can help. We’ll arrange asbestos testing and the removal of your textured ceiling if it contains the harmful mineral.

Removing textured ceilings that contain asbestos is imperative to achieving a healthy living and working environment.
Asbestos Busters can help with the removal of textured ceilings regardless of whether asbestos is present or not. If no asbestos is present then the cost of removal will be much cheaper as a result. Popcorn ceiling removal is a notoriously messy job to do and, to do it yourself, it is a requirement to be a very adept plasterer to ensure a quality finished painted ceiling.
TEXTURED CEILING ASBESTOS REMOVAL PROCESS
Health and Safety today make the point that textures wherever possible should not be removed in the dry state, but thoroughly wet down. We would rate that to be No 1. In the safe removal of asbestos texture ceilings. Another change is the weight of the film to make the enclosure was made up with 50 micron and double wrapped, this now has to be 200 micron. Occasionally we strike a hard hand patterned ceiling on a concrete base or a soft texture spray on texture painted over with enamel paint that sets so hard cannot be removed. These present more difficulties and need to be encapsulated with several coats of plaster before painting. The years of experience means we can deal with most problems that are thrown up.
TEXTURED CEILINGS WITHOUT ASBESTOS
Asbestos Busters can obviously do these also. If no asbestos is present then the cost of removal will be much cheaper as a result. You can of course do it yourself but it is a very messy job to do and you certainly need to be a very good plasterer as well to ensure a quality finished painted ceiling.
Any textured ceiling sprayed prior to 1984 are likely to contain asbestos and all those after this date are unlikely to contain asbestos. The fact is that asbestos ceilings have had their day and as such are now outdated.
