    How can I find out if our artex ceilings contain asbestos?

    Plasterers

    We have recently moved into a new property and found that some ceilings have Artex in them. We are planning on replastering these ceilings, but we want to be sure of any risk of asbestos first.

    We do not know if they have asbestos in them currently. If there is any asbestos we would want to get rid of it as soon as possible and be rid of it. If there are difficulties with removing it, we would like to be able to manage it safely otherwise.

    Is there anyway we can find this out ourselves without any danger of asbestos around?

    "Hi
    You can get an asbestos test done on the artex from the local council, if the ceilings were artexed in the early 1980s then it probably would contain asbestos which its very minimal, if it does contain asbestos then you would have to call in an asbestos removal company to then take down and dispose off ,but if it doesn't contain asbestos I would personally take the ceilings down and reboard and skim them"
