Whether you own an older home or have simply visited one, you are likely familiar with the popcorn texture that plagues most ceilings throughout Metro Vancouver, B.C. These textures were popular through the 1940’s and into the 1990’s but now these materials are doing more harm to homes than good.
If you are struggling with your dated ceiling treatment, call a Pickle Paint pro for your Burnaby popcorn ceiling removal. Removing the popcorn texture from your ceiling might seem simple enough but before you start to scrape, it is important to consider just how this materials is impacting your home or living space.
Why Should You Get Rid of Your Ceiling Texture?
Normally, when a home was built, a textured ceiling was applied to hide any imperfections in finishes and was thought to help with sound-proofing. While these things are true in theory, they also come along with a few side effects. For example, a rough finish attracts dust and airborne debris and holds onto it. This makes cleaning popcorn ceilings incredibly difficult and can have a negative impact on those tenants, visitors or customers with allergies.
In home construction projects, we have come a long way in regard to our understanding of what counts as a safe and acceptable material to use. With that said, before any popcorn removal services begin, it is important to have your ceiling surfaces tested for asbestos. When left undisturbed, asbestos is not dangerous but the second you begin to scrape or sand, dangerous materials are being unleashed into your air.
