If your home’s ceiling looks like it’s covered in ridges or bumps, you’ve got a house that was likely built in the 60s or 70s. However, this design hasn’t only become dated over the years; it also poses a high risk of collecting dust. Keep in mind that these are not the only reasons you should consider hiring a professional popcorn ceiling removal service.
By reading this brief blog post, you’ll learn exactly what you have to gain not just by removing and replacing your popcorn ceiling, but why it’s always better to hire a professional to do the job for you.
Pros of Removing Popcorn Ceilings
If you’re the type of person to redecorate often, you’ll quickly learn that decorating a popcorn ceiling is impossible to accomplish. Once it’s gone, you can paint it whatever color or design that you want without worrying about the popcorn material getting in the way.
If the ceiling becomes damaged in any way, repairing it can be a challenging task. Replacing portions of the ceiling is not easy with popcorn ceilings because finding the exact texture and color is difficult, almost ensuring that your ceiling will look inconsistent once the repairs are complete. For complete uniformity, the whole ceiling would need replacing.
When your deep cleaning season finally comes around, you’ll quickly learn that cleaning a popcorn ceiling of dust and cobwebs is unbearable. Bits and piece of ceiling falling onto your floor and forcing you to clean for longer is not something you should have to deal with in the future.
Why Hiring a Pro is the Way to Go
The only way that you’re going to be able to decorate your ceiling is if you remove the popcorn material, which is a daunting task you should never tackle on your own. If your ceiling is particularly large, the labor needed to remove the material is going to take far more than a single pair of hands to complete. Having a few extra sets of hands can make the process far more productive.
It’s likely that drywall is sitting behind your ceiling, which means if you don’t know exactly how to remove the popcorn material, you’ll easily damage the drywall in the process. Furthermore, it’s incredibly important to get the ceiling tested for asbestos and lead, two toxic chemicals you do not want to be breathing in.
When you have a professional removing your popcorn ceiling, you reduce your exposure to these chemicals which may potentially be inside your ceiling. Plus, if the ceiling were to be damaged in any way, you wouldn’t have to address the issue of toxic chemicals when you least expect it. If you have children living in your home, this particularly important.
