Removing popcorn ceiling not only solve an aesthetic issue; it also removes a possible health hazard from your home. Some popcorn ceilings contain asbestos, a harmful material that could cause cancer if inhaled. Asbestos was used in popcorn ceilings until the early 1980’s. Asbestos is dangerous when it is friable, meaning when its particles are airborne and inhaled, a situation that could occur if you sand or scrap your ceilings.
Popcorn ceiling removal process
Our professional painting crews follow specific steps to remove popcorn ceilings. Before starting the removal process, a sample of the popcorn material is collected and sent out to a laboratory for analysis to determine if it contains asbestos, which was banned in the late 1970’s. If the results are positive, only a licensed asbestos removal company will be able to perform the removal. Below is what you can expect from Paint One’s popcorn ceiling removal process
The popcorn removal process involves spraying ceilings with water to soften the popcorn texture and then scrape the ceilings to remove the layer. It’s a messy process and we want to make sure our customer’s home is protected. We remove ceiling light fixtures; we protect all power outlets with plastic sheeting; we cut off power to the room(s) where the work will take place; we cover the floors and the walls with plastic drop cloths to capture the debris from the removal.
Our crews liberally spray water on the ceilings to soften the popcorn texture. Ceilings are then scrapped to remove the unwanted texture. This part of the popcorn ceiling removal process can be lengthy depending on how easy or difficult it is to remove the popcorn texture.
Once the popcorn texture is removed, the substrate (drywall) is exposed. The seams connecting the drywall sheets are re-mudded. Holes in the ceiling’s surface are patched and imperfections in the drywall are sanded down for a smooth finish. The ceilings are then primed and painted with the color you selected.
Popcorn ceiling removal is a messy process. Once the work is completed, our crews will remove all debris and protecting material away from your property.
