Step 1: Have your home tested for asbestos. (We have recommendations for who can help.)

Step 2: Let us know what days and times are good for you. Then, we work around your schedule.

Step 3: Our experts will take care of the popcorn removal from your ceiling and dispose of it promptly. That’s all it takes!

We emphasize respect throughout the process, treating each property as if it were our own. Our top concerns are your safety and satisfaction.


If you find asbestos in your popcorn ceilings, don’t panic — and please don’t attempt to remove it without professional help.

Because the removal of asbestos within popcorn ceilings must follow specific federal and state regulations and permits (requiring the packaging, sealing and disposing being done very carefully), it’s important to hire a professional.

If you remove it on your own, you risk having the harmful particles fall into the air, making it easy for you and your family to inhale the carcinogens in asbestos that can cause severe health issues down the line.
