What Is a Popcorn Ceiling?
Textured and popcorn ceilings can be around in many homes built from the 1930s to the 1990s. They resemble the look of cottage cheese. Popcorn ceilings were a time-effective and cost-efficient way to cover flaws in the ceiling. Many homeowners choose popcorn ceilings to absorb sound to help reduce the noise levels in their homes.
Potential Asbestos in Popcorn Ceilings
Asbestos was commonly used in the construction of popcorn ceilings before 1978. If your popcorn ceiling contains asbestos and is disturbed, the harmful particles become airborne. The asbestos dust can settle into carpets, vents, and crevices and cause serious health hazards. Professional popcorn ceiling removal is critical to your health. Asbestos fibers can cause lung cancer, lung disease, and scarring of the lungs. While it is not dangerous undisturbed and contained, it can be easily disturbed. We advise having your popcorn ceilings tested for asbestos if your ceilings were installed before 1978.
Professional Popcorn Ceiling Removal Process
Five Star Painting of Frisco helps your ceilings look stunning and smooth. Our popcorn ceiling removal process depends on your ceiling location when it was built, and the final ceiling treatment. We offer an upfront estimate on our services before the popcorn removal ceiling process begins. After approval, we use plastic and drop cloths to seal the entire area to protect your home. After proper sealing, we remove the popcorn ceiling. As we remove the popcorn ceiling, we inspect for loose pieces of sheetrock or other debris.

Popcorn Ceiling Removal Cost

Can I Cover Up My Popcorn Ceiling Myself?
Some homeowners try to get around popcorn ceiling removal by opting for spray-over products or covering their ceiling with wood plants.
