Popcorn Ceiling Removal Services
It is true that popcorn ceilings were once popular; mostly because of the ability to be installed quickly and conceal blemishes. However, now Scottsdale homeowners are requesting popcorn removal, for a number of important reasons.
This is not the type of work that should be handled in a DIY manner or even by just any local painting company. Popcorn removal should be executed by trained and experienced professionals only, and one with a license and insurance that is current.
This type of material can, in some cases, contain asbestos and it is not something that should be taken care of by anyone other than an expert. Help update the look of your home, while ridding the interior or a possible health hazard, with this removal service.
Home Improvement With Popcorn Removal
Also referred to as names like textures ceilings or cottage cheese ceilings, this type of material is usually found in older homes. They became a cheap and easy way to cover ceilings, without the concern for a smooth and perfect finish.
Plus, they were favored in places like apartments, condos and townhomes because they have acoustic properties, meaning they have the ability to help soundproof a space more than traditional ceilings. They were used anywhere from the 1930s and as late as the 1990s, but are generally not used these days, so make sure the interior painting company you hire doesn't plan on doing this to your ceilings.
- Popcorn removal is important for safety reasons, above all else. There is no reason to have any material in your household that may contain asbestos. That being said, this is also not material that should be handled by anyone other than a trained and experienced professional.
- This textured ceiling material was sprayed on, which is why it was an easier and more cost-effective approach to covering this space. It wasn't until 1978 when the Clean Air Act was passed that popcorn ceiling was taken more seriously. Asbestos was used as a binding agent for this textured material. Around this time, asbestos was replaced with filler like Styrofoam instead.
- Popcorn ceilings also trap dust and cobwebs. This makes them look dirty and unsightly but also pose a threat to anyone asthma, allergies or other respiratory-related health issues.
- Repairing this type of ceiling can be a nightmare too because it is almost impossible to conceal the new repaired spot. It is difficult to replicate the exact pattern of the original spray. For that reason, it is usually easy to detect the area where a repair was made and patched.
