the eighties and still in some areas of construction.

Popcorn texturing, glue and material in flooring, siding, all were built with asbestos in and around your time frame.

If this is a concern to you, and it should be, have everything tested that you plan to remove in your existing home since its a viable sample of that time. This way you will be sure.

In removing your popcorn, if you did the norm removal procedure of wetting down the ceiling pretty well, then airborn particles were somewhat eliminated. But if you did not use water and scraped it clean w/o water, then that's a different story.
