Can asbestos leak from nail holes in the ceiling of asbestos popcorn?


My house is an apartment built in the 1970s.

My house is a popcorn ceiling. I sometimes doubt if this contains asbestos.

There are a number of nail holes in the ceiling. (About 5-6)

I am wondering if asbestos is leaking from this condition as well.

You might think it's a silly question.

But sometimes, I'm worried and don't want to breathe at home.

I heard that there are places to test asbestos.

But I'm not good at English and I'm worried.

thank you.

    Houses in the 70s did not have asbestos. The risk was well known by then. Your ceiling is made from harmless plaster.

    Asbestos is not a poison gas or a radioactive substance asbestos as a fiber and as long as you don't disturb it and liberate it into your air so that it's flying around you'll never have a problem with it. If you have a ceiling that you suspect is full of asbestos fibers then get yourself elastomeric paint and spray don't roll spray the surface and then you will have no more problems

    That's plaster, not asbestos.  You can stop worrying.
