Asbestos Ceiling Tile Still Exists, Here’s How to Get Rid of It

asbestos ceiling tile

Asbestos ceiling tile isn’t used by new home builders anymore, but that doesn’t mean to say that asbestos ceiling tiles don’t still exist. Many homeowners mistakenly believe that asbestos ceiling tile isn’t something to worry about anymore, but the truth is that many older homes and offices across the country still have asbestos-containing ceiling tiles.

How to Get Rid of Asbestos Ceiling Tile

The first step in getting rid of asbestos ceiling tile is to confirm that you actually have asbestos contaminated ceiling tile in your home or office. If your home was built during the 1990’s then the chances are that you have nothing to worry about. If your home was built before the 1990’s and has not been refurbished or remodeled at any point then it’s time to call in a professional.

There are sites all over the net that claim to help you to identify asbestos contaminated items in your home but the truth is that the only way to be sure is to call in the professionals to have your ceiling tiles examined and tested. You can certainly guess, but we don’t recommend it, it’s always better to get the opinion of an experienced professional.

The first thing a professional will do is look at your ceiling tiles and take a small sample of the tile for testing. This testing will determine whether or not your tiles are contaminated with asbestos. If testing shows that your tiles are contaminated with asbestos then it’s time to arrange for removal.
