How To Safely Remove Artex & How Dangerous Is it?
Asbestos was commonly used in ceilings up until the 1980s when its use was banned due to its health risks. If your property was built before this time, there is a good chance that original ceilings and walls artex could contain asbestos. You should always use a wet working removal system to remove artex as this prevents the dangerous asbestos dust particle from escaping into the air and being breathed in through your nose and mouth.
If you do have asbestos in your artex, ceiling or wall covering, it is important not to panic, as it’s only dangerous if you come in contact with the dust particles if it is disturbed. As long as the artex is in good condition and left undisturbed with no cracks, there is no risk to your health.
