If your house is before 2000 there most likely is asbestos it the artex around 4% or below this is only harmful in powder form or damaged.

Hi there, asbestos can be found in building that was built before 2000, the only one to find out is to get a help from specialist to have a look at it, try not to disturb dust, and stop immediately any work undertaken

Just to add a bit of extra advice, if unsure always get the advice from an asbestos professional when dealing with asbestos.

I would personally call up a company specializing in asbestos testing and removal to come out and professionally test the artex. Hope this helps!
