Overview of our processes:

Step 1: Prepare the Room

Remove furniture and items in the room.

Seal off the entire room by hanging two millimeter plastic sheets from the crown molding all the way to the floor (Image 1).

Put a window fan in the window for added ventilation.

Add a drop cloth with a waterproof backing to the floor (Image 2).

If the popcorn was added before 1979, get it tested for asbestos by either wetting down a small area with a sponge and scraping off a little to place in a small bag, or by having a professional come out and test it.


Step 2: Spray the Ceiling

Use a basic garden sprayer to wet down the ceiling. This will soften the ceiling texture and help to break down the adhesive bond making scraping easier.

Work in an area about 5 feet square. It’s better to make several passes than allow the popcorn ceiling to absorb too much water which could damage the paper surface and the wallboards underneath.


Step 3: Scrape the Ceiling

Wait 10-15 minutes for the water to soak in and then start scraping it off (Image 1) with a ceiling texture scraper (Image 2).

Use a smaller putty knife to scrape the corners and the crown molding.


Step 4: Repair and Finish the Ceiling

When the acoustic is substantially removed you will begin to see the results and beauty of this process. But often the ceiling has been slightly damaged in the process.

Repairing the Sheetrock, Recoating the Joints and Nails and smoothing out uneven areas is the final step in the removal process.
