On Tuesday I posted about removing Pop Corn Ceiling to make your house look more up to date.  I received some comments warning that pop corn ceiling could have asbestos in it. So, I thought I'd find some helpful info dealing with the subject.

Here is a site about asbestos ceilings you should read - and act on if necessary - before you tackle that pop corn ceiling project.

 Just like lead paint in homes built prior to 1978, you need to be careful if you are dealing with toxins.

I have not known anyone personally who has had asbestos in their pop corn ceiling, however I HAVE heard of several people with it in their floor tiles. The link has an address where you can send off a sample of your pop corn to get tested for asbestos before you begin your project.  Better to be safe than SICK.
