Asbestos in Popcorn Ceiling

Prior to 1978, asbestos was commonly used in the construction of popcorn or acoustic ceilings, as well as in other home building materials. If your home was built prior to 1978, it’s important to have your popcorn ceilings tested for asbestos prior to beginning any construction project. If your ceiling does contain asbestos and is disturbed in any way, asbestos particles could become airborne. Asbestos inhalation has been linked to serious health problems, including mesothelioma.

All Steps

First, we’ll take the time to remove all fixtures and light switches from the room. The floors and your furniture will be securely covered as well or moved out of the space. Our team will use a powerful water gun to spray the walls/ceilings and make sure they’re thoroughly soaked before using specialty scraping tools to dislodge the popcorn surfaces in large chunks. Once we’ve reached the substrate (underlying layer), this surface will be filled to create a flat, attractive finish, followed by the necessary sanding and priming. We’ll get rid of all removed material through in-depth cleaning and vacuuming. You won’t have to worry about any clean-up – our experienced workers handle everything!

Why should I remove my popcorn ceiling?

At one time, the popcorn texture was very popular with homebuyers, but things have changed. Nowadays, not so much. People tend to shy away from the unappealing, chunky texture of popcorn ceilings and dislike the fact that they can be difficult to keep clean. The only reasons to remove the popcorn ceiling are if it is showing signs of damage and if you want to change the look and feel of the design of your home. Otherwise, you can have your popcorn ceiling for as long as you want. At ProPainters Inc, we offer popcorn removal to help you create a more aesthetically pleasing design element of your home.

Will my ceiling be ready to paint once it is removed?

Unfortunately, the process is a little more complicated than simply scraping the popcorn texture off the ceiling. Once we’ve soaked the popcorn texture, we use our tools to remove the harsh texture. Then the joints will need to be floated using drywall mud. Once it’s perfectly smooth, we will add the appropriate texture back on. Then, we’ll have to prime the surface before you’re ready for painting. Doing this entire process prepares your ceiling so that it become a more attractive element in the room.

How long does popcorn ceiling removal take?

Each room is unique and can impact the duration of the project. However, a small area typically takes about two days to complete the whole process. An entire house, depending on the size and number of rooms can be treated in three or four days. However, if you also would like us to paint after removing the popcorn ceiling, that will extend the work. When you have your free estimate with one of our Idea Guys, they should be able to give you a more accurate timeline for what you want to accomplish.

What prep do I need to do before you start?

Removing popcorn ceilings can be a messy undertaking. Although we will put coverings over furniture or move it all out of the room as needed, we’d appreciate it if you could remove all your knickknacks and bed linens so that we can get straight to work.
