Popcorn Ceiling Removal

Popcorn Ceiling Removal

Textured ceilings were historically popular due to their ability to absorb sound and lessen echoes. Since then, the style has fallen out of popularity, and it is rarely found in contemporary design. Unfortunately, it is still present in many older homes. This is most likely owing to the infamously difficult removal of popcorn ceilings.

While it may be tempting to try to remove it yourself, this is a job that should be left to the specialists. It is not just a challenging occupation, but it is also potentially dangerous. When you’re ready to finally get rid of that popcorn ceiling, there are a few things to consider.

We Provide Popcorn Ceiling Removal Services

To know how to remove a popcorn ceiling or any other textured ceiling, we must first understand what it is. The texture on this spray-on or paint-on ceiling coating was originally made of white asbestos, but it was replaced after the 1970s with a paper-based or Styrofoam product. Depending on the material used, removing it might become a much more difficult operation.

One thing is certain when it comes to removing any type of textured ceiling treatment: it will be a multi-step procedure. The procedures are explained here to give you an idea of what to expect.

The Removal Process

  • Light fixtures and switches are being removed from the room.
  • Because there is enough residue, dust, and material removed, all furniture and floors are totally masked.
  • Unpainted stucco (popcorn ceiling) is easy to remove because it only needs to be dissolved with a water-based solution.
  • Because the underlying is impacted, painted stucco requires more effort to remove and typically necessitates additional prep following removal.
  • The substrate will be entirely filled after removal to offer a new flat finish.
  • Before applying the finish coat, the new filling will be sanded and primed.
  • All of the items that have been removed will be vacuumed and cleaned.

Benefits Of Removal

So, why should you bother removing those popcorn ceilings? For starters, it gives your home a lot more sleek and modern aspect. It will astound you how much of a difference it can make!

It’s also a good idea to get rid of it if you’re going to sell your property soon. Many buyers will avoid buying a property if they know they would need to spend in further improvements right away.

Surfaces can yellow as they age, which is an aesthetically pleasing issue. This can also happen if there is any water damage. In the long run, it’s better to remove it rather than paint over it because it will simply recur again.

Before you begin the process of removing your popcorn ceiling, there is one critical factor to consider. As previously indicated, asbestos and lead-contaminated popcorn ceiling removal may be required in some older homes. If your home was constructed before 1981, you must get it tested for these pollutants before attempting to remove them.

Popcorn Ceiling Might Contain Asbestos

If asbestos or lead are present, the procedure might become far more challenging. In this situation, the work must be done by specialists who have received asbestos-related training. It is vital to exercise extreme caution since breathing in dust can be quite harmful. You’ll probably have to completely seal off the room throughout the painting process, and you won’t be let back in until all of the dust has settled.
