Yeah, it was all through the carpet, two pros came in yesterday and both said the carpet had to go, lucky we hadnít started to move in yet or other stuff would have to go. The bill will be closer to $10,000

Place has been cleaned now, have moved most of ours stuff in.
Pros didnít do that great a job still little bits of white dust here and there and some on the walls, I went over the place a couple of times and cleaned the place, wet wiped the walls and floors, then vacuumed the walls and floor with a hepa filter vacuum.

I read some years back that although it was banned in 1978 in the US, warehoused stuff was grandfathered in and still used in some areas until 1986. When I have to remove popcorn (rare occasions and small jobs for me, fortunately) I usually just assume it has asbestos and deal with it accordingly. Better safe than sorry!
