Is there Asbestos in Popcorn ceiling? My house was built in the year 2000-2001, I can't seem to get a clear answer on google. Please help me, I am from Canada area.
Get an inspector to run an air test to see if there is any asbestos in your household. To be honest I dont think there should be any. Note briefly please check with a inspector to provide you with the results of an air test because your health and safety is very very important. Let's just say it's great to be safe side rather than being uncertain.
The answer is to get it tested, that is all anyone will tell you.
Asbestos was used in construction of homes up till the early 1990s and was continued to be used in commercial and industrial buildings well after that; it is an excellent fire barrier.

There should not be any concern for asbestos
In the event you run into any further concerns with asbestos, particularly with older homes, the only way to find out for sure is to test the material. I would advise hiring an environmental hygienist to sample and test the material for you.
Hope this helps,
