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.
