Reasons to Consider Removing Your Popcorn Ceiling
So you’re stuck with this relic of the past and you’ve learned to look past the unsightly texture in your living room ceiling. You may be wondering what are some of the reasons why you should consider removing your popcorn ceiling, as you haven’t
felt the urge to have someone remove it.
There are some important reasons to consider removing popcorn ceiling. Obviously, if you suspect that there is asbestos within your popcorn ceiling, you should make it a top priority to eliminate this carcinogenic material from your home. However,
even if you don’t think your ceiling contains asbestos, you may still want to think about having your popcorn ceiling removed.
One of the biggest downsides to having popcorn ceiling in your home is that it can be hard to paint. The extreme texture of popcorn ceiling contains many ridges and difficult to paint areas. Commonly, painting a ceiling involves using a paint roller
with an extension, but with a popcorn ceiling this is not possible, as the surface is far from flat. Painting a popcorn ceiling is much more time consuming than other types of surfaces, as you may have to meticulously paint it by hand.
Popcorn ceilings can also be hard to maintain and repair. Because of the amount of texture present on the surface, it can easily become dirty and dusty in between the cracks and crevices. This may require a person to slowly clean their ceiling,
potentially using a brush attachment on a vacuum, as a way to effectively remove all of the gunk that has collected on the surface. Additionally, if a part of your ceiling breaks off, it can be difficult to fill in the space without it looking
out of place.
Popcorn ceilings can be incredibly difficult to remove by hand. This is why opting to go with a professional who can carefully and efficiently remove your ceiling is likely your best option. At Darlene Kay, we are confident in our ability to effectively
remove your ceiling in a timely manner. If you are in need of popcorn removal, contact us today and we will be happy to assist you in removing this persistent eyesore from your home once and for all.
