Asbestos Health Risk In Your Textured Ceiling

Asbestos has been in the past used in many industries like the building and construction industries. Its been used in ceiling and floor tiles, paints, coatings, adhesives, plastics, and more. In 1989, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) banned all new uses of asbestos; however, uses developed before 1989 are still allowed. People may be exposed to asbestos in their workplace, their communities, or their homes. If products containing asbestos are disturbed, tiny asbestos fibers are released into the air. When asbestos fibers are breathed in, they may get trapped in the lungs and remain there for a long time. Over time, these fibers can accumulate and cause scarring and inflammation which can affect breathing and lead to serious health problems, cancer, and death. One of the most common places to find asbestos in the home on the outside of the wall is in textured coatings watch this video for the pros and cons of removing contaminated textured and popcorn ceilings from your home. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJWNYVf_DnE&feature=plcp If you want to remove textured coating in your home but can not afford a professional EcoSolve Americas has the solution.

What You Should Know About Paint Stripping

Paint strippers contain chemicals that loosen paint from surfaces. These chemicals can harm you if not used properly. Proper handling and use of paint strippers will reduce your exposure to these chemicals and lessen your health risk. The article linked is a very informative description of common chemical paint strippers, their hazards, and the precautionary measures that should be taken to protect yourself prepared by the US Product Safety Commission. http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/pubs/423.html Although there is extensive safety equipment and extreme precautionary measures that can be taken to use these chemicals there are safe alternatives becoming  readily available that contain little or none of the hazardous solvents and caustics mention in the above article. Hands down the safest on the market today is Home Strip. Home Strip has water based technology that instead of chemically reacting with the paint will soften the water molecules in the paint and lift from the surface being stripped. This product is safe on all surfaces and has no fume or burn hazards it also goes about three times longer than chemical strippers because it stays wet and working for much longer.
