Popcorn ceiling is a type of ceiling treatment, typically sprayed on, that was popular during the 1980s but has fallen out of style due to aesthetic and health reasons. Also known as cottage cheese ceiling, stipple ceiling, stucco ceiling, and acoustic ceiling, there are five key benefits that popcorn ceiling removal will have on your home and health.
1. Gets rid of asbestos.
Some older may with popcorn ceilings contain asbestos and lead which poses a serious health threat. If these hazardous materials are detected, special gear is required to remove the popcorn ceiling. Platinum Sand Construction always checks for these substances before performing a job and takes every step to safely remove them.
2. Cleans more easily.
Popcorn ceiling’s rough, bumpy texture easily accumulates dust, cobwebs, and other particles which makes it harder to clean, particularly rooms with high ceilings. Popcorn ceiling removal will improve the home’s air quality because it will be easier to clean the ceiling and fewer particles will accumulate.
3. Updates the room’s look.
Popcorn ceiling is an outdated style of ceiling treatment that can lower a home’s value because most buyers and renters prefer not having it. Popcorn ceiling removal is the perfect finishing touch to a remodeling project as it makes the home look more contemporary and well kept.
4. Achieves better paint results.
Removing the popcorn texture from ceilings creates a smooth flat surface that will produce better paint results than a crater-like surface. Whether you want to whitewash the ceiling or paint a custom color, it’s crucial to remove the popcorn ceiling to achieve a smooth, even paint application.
5. Eliminates falling popcorn texture.
Popcorn ceilings don’t get along well with moisture. Bathrooms and kitchens, however, have moisture which can cause popcorn ceiling to loosen and fall down. By removing the popcorn ceiling, you won’t end up with bits of popcorn texture falling onto you unexpectedly when getting out of the shower or eating food.
