Popcorn Ceiling Removal
Get Rid Of That Old Popcorn Ceiling
An unfortunate drawback to popcorn ceilings is the amount of work required to keep the surface area clean and fix any holes or cracks that may appear over time. Cobwebs, spiders, dust, and bits of dirt can easily get caught in the bumps, and smoke can eventually stain your ceiling, which can be difficult to remove. A duster or the brush head of your vacuum cleaner can help get rid of debris, but if you press too hard, raised particles of your ceiling may break and fall off, causing more aesthetic harm than good.
Should too many bumps fall off while cleaning, or if any holes form in your ceiling, it is time-consuming to repair them. First, you need to scrape off all the bumps surrounding the damaged section and sand it down so it is completely smooth before applying some drywall plaster, sanding again, and painting it over.
You cannot paint this type of ceiling with a regular brush! The stubble will fall off once it is wet, so you need a segmented foam roller to do the job. Alternatively, spray products such as Homax provide a popcorn texture, but whatever you end up using may not be consistent or match up with the original design. It’s best to consult with a popcorn ceiling expert for cleaning and repairs.
Water damage will also cause the textured appearance to come loose and peel off over time. Leaks will only harm your ceiling, as the stipple will become heavy, and eventually start to fall. Kitchens, bathrooms, and spaces where moisture is prevalent should have smooth ceilings to avoid these problems.
