What’s the deal with Asbestos testing?
The truth is no contractor can legally scrape your popcorn ceiling without a test regardless of when your house was built. A test consists of 3 samples taken and analyzed by state certified companies and/or people. Protect yourself and your contractor by getting the test done. The cost is reasonable and you will have peace of mind knowing your house is asbestos free before you begin.

- –For around $30 per sample anyone can send samples for asbestos testing to companies like Western Analytical Laboratories. Contact them and they will tell you how to obtain and ship your samples. They normally email a report within 24hrs of receiving the samples. If the report comes back ‘none-detected’ you will still need to hire a certified testing company or person to satisfy the state requirements for asbestos testing.
