Why you need an Acoustic Ceiling Removal in Naperville
Not only do popcorn ceilings tend to shed and leave bits of material everywhere, but they also tend to attract dust! Its hard to clean popcorn ceilings without removing the looser portions of it, leading to constant vacuuming and other concerns. This is especially problematic if you have a ceiling fan or high ceiling, both of which can make popcorn ceiling shedding far more problematic.
Another important issue is the age of your building. Homes built prior to 1985 will require proof of asbestos testing with a negative result to perform removal. Testing can be completed by the property owner or by CertaPro Painters of Naperville. Please contact our office at 630-541-9055 for additional information.
