The Ceiling Specialists – Your Go-To Source For Popcorn Ceiling Removal
Installing popcorn ceilings is already an art form that should not be tackled by the average homeowner. But getting rid of them is a whole other ball game. If you’re considering removing your popcorn ceiling texture and smoothing out the surface, your best bet is to get in touch with the experts in this field.
No matter which method you choose to get rid of the sprayed-on material, it will be a challenge if you don’t have the right team in place to do so.
Here are just a few reasons why:
Scraping it can result in a lot of damage to the underlying surface.
One common way to eliminate popcorn ceilings is to scrape it off with a utility knife after softening the material with some water. But not only is this job very difficult and time-consuming, it can also leave a lot of knicks if you’re not careful. And any dents will have to be smoothed over and finished after the material has been scraped off.
Asbestos can become airborne.
If it’s discovered that there is asbestos in the popcorn ceiling (which was common before the 1980s), you could unknowingly allow it to become airborne while trying to scrape it off. The professionals will be able to test the area, and if asbestos is found, the necessary precautions will be taken to ensure this material does not infest the indoor air.
