Popular in the 80s, popcorn ceilings are now a thing of the past and an eye sore for many homeowners. Those popcorn ceilings have to go, but before you start scrapping them off, you need to know that removing popcorn ceiling is a tedious, time consuming and a messy project. You may want to consider Paint One’s popcorn ceiling removal services to make it easier for you. Do you have high ceilings in your home that are hard to reach? DIY and climbing a ladder to scrape your ceilings might not be such a great idea after all. Moreover, once the texture is removed, you might find that the ceilings are in less than perfect shape and in need of repairs or replacement. Even though you might be enthusiastic about doing this type project on your own, you may want to think twice before proceeding and may want to consider hiring the assistance of a professional painting company like Paint One of Asheville.
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 can be inhaled, a situation that could occur if you sand or scrap your ceilings.
Our professional team follows specific steps to remove popcorn ceilings (see below). Before any work starts, a sample of the popcorn material is collected and sent out to a laboratory for analysis to find out if it contains asbestos. If the results are positive, only a licensed asbestos removal company will be able to perform the removal.
