Asbestos in Ceilings

One of the most common materials used for making ceiling tiles between the 1950s and 1980s was Asbestos. It was often used in the construction of the tiles themselves as well as in the adhesives used between the tiles and the insulation under the tiles. Ceilings with Asbestos tiles might be recognized by several names, including drop ceilings, suspended ceilings and acoustic ceilings.

Asbestos was a common additive in ceiling treatments. The mineral was often used in ceiling tiles and the paper backing for the tiles. Even some of the adhesives used to affix ceiling tiles together, such as mastic, also contained Asbestos. Even in older homes that do not have ceiling tiles, ceilings may still contain Asbestos and especially during this same time period, asbestos popcorn ceilings were very popular.

Asbestos-containing ceiling products were common in schools, universities, warehouses and hospitals. In the home, Asbestos-containing ceiling tiles were common in kitchens and basements to cover ductwork.

Asbestos ceiling tiles are considered to be relatively low risk as the Asbestos fibres are woven into the tile. However, if the ceiling tiles get broken or damaged or have begun to crumble, this releases harmful Asbestos particles into the air that can be hazardous to health.  If you suspect the presence of Asbestos ceilings in your property, it is always safest to contact a trained professional to see if any action is necessary.

The Mick George Group are fully licensed to survey and remove Asbestos ceilings and ceiling tiles, giving you a complete and comprehensive service. We will complete a full survey and risk assessment to identify the presence and extent of Asbestos in your ceilings, and will advise on the safest way to proceed. This could be removing Asbestos ceiling tiles entirely, or applying a special coating to safely encapsulate the Asbestos and prevent harmful fibres from escaping. If the Asbestos in your ceiling is fully intact, no action may be needed. However, if the fibres are broken or you are planning building and renovation work, the Asbestos will need to be safely handled and removed.

Discovering that there may be Asbestos ceilings in your residential or commercial property can be a worry, but we can safely assess, handle and remove Asbestos from start to finish. If you have concerns about Asbestos ceiling tiles or materials, get in touch today.
