Manufacturing building materials with asbestos was banned by the Environmental Protection Agency in 1978 because asbestos was found to pose serious health risks such as cancer and respiratory disease. The law also allowed builders and construction companies to use any existing inventory well into the 1980’s. Because of this, if you own a home that has popcorn ceilings it is important to have a certified asbestos contractor test and remove it.
