These are popular tin ceiling tiles used in kitchens and bathrooms. They give a backsplash effect, and come in a six-pattern style or twelve-pattern style. These have to be nailed up for installation.
Use a spray bottle or a pump sprayer that contains water. Spray some water on four different small portions of the ceiling. Scrape out the small patches of these moistened portions with the help of a putty knife and put these samples into separate polythene bags. Send these samples to the lab to verify if the ceiling contains asbestos.
Most popcorn ceilings contain asbestos to create texture, though there are some that use a paper-based or Styrofoam product, as compared to using asbestos. However, asbestos poses a lot of health threats. Asbestos is hazardous because the fibers of the material when airborne can cause a serious cancer which is called mesothelioma or sometimes referred as asbestos cancer. The symptoms of this condition don't show up for many years, but when they do the condition is in its advanced stage. Hence during the mid 70s the EPA (Environment Protection Agency) and OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) put in regulations regarding the use of asbestos.
