Richmond Popcorn Ceiling Removal
Throughout history, every decade has had its own distinct style. While some of these styles swing back into fashion, a popcorn texture should not be one of them. A textured ceiling not only dates your property, but its tough to clean, can drop property values and maybe even have a negative impact on your health. Instead of learning to live with an unpleasant texture, call a Pickle Paint Pro for professional Richmond popcorn ceiling removal service.
Textured Ceilings: What’s the Big Deal?
In the grand scheme of things, a textured ceiling might not seem like the end of the world but there is more to this material than meets the eye. Popcorn ceilings were popular for decades, particularly during the 1950’s to the 1990’s. The reason for this widespread popularity is that textures are thought to provide a level of sound proofing, as well as hide imperfections and uneven surfaces.
It is true that a popcorn finish does hide uneven surfaces, and it is extremely difficult to clean. Rigid peaks grab onto cobwebs and dust, creating discolourations that end up being an eyesore. Simply trying aim a spray bottle at the ceiling or swiping a broom over these areas can lead to breakage and bald patches being left behind. The visuals of this are bad enough on their own, but when incorporating the potential health risks, it becomes even worse.
One of the most common compounds for popcorn ceilings are made using asbestos. When left alone, asbestos is not particularly dangerous but when it is disturbed, dangerous materials are released into the air. Breathing in asbestos has direct links to respiratory illnesses, cancer and other complications. When trying to remove the popcorn texture from ceiling, it is important to have materials tested first.
Popcorn Ceiling Removal: The Best Results, Done Safely
Certain home renovation projects can be done on a DIY basis but textured ceiling removal isn’t one of them. It is not uncommon for property owners to grab a drywall knife or spray the ceiling with high pressure water in an attempt to get rid of textures but these are both dangerous and don’t always leave smooth ceilings behind. One slip with a putty knife can leave a deep gash behind.
