I'm in the process of renovating my room. I was planning on removing this 'popcorn' type ceiling texture that was applied. However, it was painted over and is difficult to remove (any tips on how i can get it off?)

I also have a question regarding asbestos. What are the odds of my house having asbestos? It was built in the 50's.

here is a picture of the current ceiling. I am trying to make it smooth... but its pretty hard, been using a chisel and some water mist, but it just wont come off.

thanks in advance

Can't help with whether or not the ceiling is asbestos or not or how to remove.

My suggestion is to not try to disturb or remove at all.

Simply install a new drywall ceiling over the existing textured ceiling.

End of "problem".
