About Popcorn Ceiling Removal Services
Popcorn ceiling was an incredibly popular choice for home decoration for many years, offering homeowners a solution that hides imperfections without sacrificing quality acoustics. Nowadays a popcorn ceiling can make a room look dated and old-fashioned, and removing it has become a priority for many looking to update their homes. This is particularly the case for homeowners trying to sell their homes in an increasingly competitive market, as well as those who have just purchased a fixer-upper and are looking to make it their own.
In addition to the finish, popcorn ceiling can be difficult to clean and maintain. The texture easily accumulates dust and cobwebs, which is especially problematic in homes with high ceilings that are difficult to reach. This is why many homeowners opt for popcorn ceiling removal services in order to achieve a cleaner, more modern finish for their home ceilings. CertaPro Painters® offers this service with all of the professionalism and attention to detail our customers have come to expect.
The Popcorn Ceiling Removal Process
The complexity of the job makes it a difficult task to undertake without professional help, which is where CertaPro Painters® comes in. Our teams have extensive experience in this kind of job and can deliver perfect results quickly and efficiently. This could even include painting the ceiling a new color or installing an alternative effect. View the process below:
1Cover Walls & Floor
Covering the walls and flooring with heavy duty plastic sheets.
Removing light fixtures and anything else attached to the ceiling. Spraying the surface with small amounts of water so that the popcorn ceiling easily scrapes away.
Removing popcorn using Festool Planex. It has a planex sanding head and vacuums dust and filters it through a HEPA filter. This is a much cleaner experience for the customer. The traditional method is to spray the popcorn with water and scrape off using a putty knife.
Skim coating any damaged areas prior to sanding to ensure a smooth, properly prepared surface for painting.
Application of a fresh coat of paint primer followed by the paint color of your choice.
Why Hire CertaPro Painters® To Remove My Popcorn Ceiling?
Popcorn ceiling removal is an involved and messy process, requiring special tools for scraping, sanding, and vacuuming the dust that accumulates on the ground.
It can be time-consuming, depending on the height and square footage of the ceiling, as well as on how intricate the popcorn pattern is. If popcorn ceiling removal services are required in a furnished room, all the furnishings will have to be removed or protected, making the process even more labor intensive.
