How to Remove Popcorn Ceiling
You can DIY the task of popcorn ceiling removal or hire Wellington Pro Painters & Popcorn Removal. If this project is something, you decide to do yourself, prepare for a long, hard day of work. Although this project is relatively easy to complete, it can be very taxing on the body.
Check for Asbestos
If you want commercial popcorn ceiling removal, there is an important thing to remember. Experts explain that asbestos was used in popcorn ceilings before the 1980s because of its fire-resistant properties and soundproofing capabilities. As you probably know, asbestos can cause mesothelioma. This is a form of cancer that affects the lining and lungs.
What are the potential risks? Asbestos rarely poses a threat when it is enclosed and hidden, but home renovations, projects, and deterioration can uncover asbestos fibers and potentially expose homeowners, contractors, and individuals vulnerable to coming in contact with asbestos.
Before starting any work on your popcorn ceiling, verifying that asbestos has been removed is crucial. Although home testing kits are available, we recommend you call an asbestos contractor for certification.
Do you want to perform the test yourself? Ensure that you use appropriate protective gear, such as gloves, dust masks or ventilators, and eye protection when collecting your sample.
It is crucial to seek professional assistance if you find asbestos. Glenn Wiseman, Wellington Pro Painters & Popcorn Removal, warns that if your test returns positive for carcinogens, you should get professional help to remove the ceiling. Please do not disturb the asbestos or attempt to remove it without a professional inspection.
Prepare For Removal
You can prepare to remove your ceiling if it doesn’t contain asbestos. However, it would be best if you took the necessary precautions. Wellington Pro Painters & Popcorn Removal says it’s best to wear a particulate shield during the removal. You can also protect your eyes by wearing goggles.
Take all furniture out of the room and prepare it. Cover the walls with painter’s plastic and then cover the floor with plastic sheets. They say that it’s better not to cover floors with a cloth tarp because the cloth isn’t waterproof. Also, turn off the electricity.
To ensure that the space is well ventilated while you work, open the windows in the room.
Spray Water on the Ceiling
It is an easy way to remove popcorn ceilings. Professionals say using a pump garden sprayer, spray a section of approximately five by 5 feet with water. Wait for 10 to 15 minutes for the water to penetrate the popcorn.” Do not soak the ceiling, as this could cause damage to the drywall. Water can almost remove the dust.
