Asbestos in popcorn ceiling
NEED HELP! I am in the process of painting the popcorn ceiling in my apartment in a apartment building. I know that the ceiling apparently contains about 5% asbestos (tested). I used a roller for painting which works but some areas the ceiling broke loose and about quarter size pieces came of. Also, while painting paint and/or ceiling scrubs came loose and feel down. I read that asbestos containing areas should be left alone. Do I have to be concerned that I have a health problem know? Does the paint still bind asbestos fibers? Do I have to patch the broken off areas? Any expert suggestions/solutions on how to proceed? Thank you.
