The Process of Ridding Yourself of Popcorn

After completing the preparation, the process of the actual removal of popcorn ceiling begins. A sufficient amount of water is sprayed over the popcorn texture, after which it is scraped off in layers down to the drywall. The popcorn texture, during this process, falls away directly to the plastic sheeting/drop cloths placed on the ground previously during the preparation step. After the texture has all been removed, the drywall is now exposed. This will reveal any visible holes, cracks, flaws, and other signs of damage that need to be repaired and fixed accordingly. Once repairs have been made, the drywall is sanded down to produce an even and level surface. The ceiling is then finished with either contemporary knock-down texture, or with a beautiful smooth finish.
