Popcorn ceilings were all the craze in the 70’s and almost every house built in that time period had it. 50 years later we are all stuck with popcorn ceilings, which is a home for dust particles.
Popcorn ceiling can often give your home an outdated and old look. Removing your popcorn ceiling and applying a surface that is more modern and elegant can not only improve the aesthetic of your home, but it can create a cleaner environment. In fact, those that suffer from serious allergies found that when the popcorn ceiling was removed, their allergy symptoms decreased.
At Alberta Colour Painting we can enhance your home by removing popcorn ceiling and adding in a flat ceiling or textured application. The steps in removing popcorn ceiling is a rigorous process so it is important to hire a professional team to remove the ceiling in your home or office.
When you hire Alberta Colour Painting, we take the steps to ensure the process is done effectively. We begin by protecting your interior flooring, furniture and appliances within your home or office. We then remove any light fixtures or fans to ensure the area of open and clean. We then dampen your popcorn ceilings with a light mist of water and a small mix of softener to prep the area. We leave the area for 15 minutes to dry. This allows the moisture of the mixture to soak into the popcorn ceiling and become soft. We then begin scraping the popcorn ceiling texture off using a wide blade. This is a process that should be done with care and patience. We always recommend hiring a professional as damaging the roof can occur in this step. We then sand back the roof, use a shop-vac to get rid of any excess water and loose debris, and then finish it off with a primer and a coat of paint.
