Asbestos Safety

At a recent inspection, the buyer asked whether there was asbestos in the acoustical ceiling texture (a.k.a., "popcorn" ceilings). The home was built in the early '70s, so there's a good chance that the acoustical ceiling texture contained some asbestos, but the only way to tell for sure is to send off a sample for testing. 

Should you scrape that off yourself? Consider this free resource before you scrape it yourself.
