    Hi, in my bedroom the ceiling is starting to flake in places. Here is the first place - https://imgur.com/HEa2k2X and here is the other side of the room - https://imgur.com/uFLJofw . I had a sample tested and it came back positive for Chrysotile, what can I do to make sure asbestos fibres aren't being released. I stupidly sanded part of another Artex ceiling in another room in my house not realising it could contain asbestos and this prompted me to get it tested, I don't want to make the same mistake again! I can't really afford to get the whole ceiling removed, what's the best way I could repair this. Also hairline cracks are developing around the room, is there anyway I could fill these in?

    Get it skimmed over, is the usual answer.
