Popcorn Ceiling Removal
It wasn’t so long ago that interior designers loved popcorn ceilings. They were considered an excellent way to mask small imperfections, great for soften the infiltration of noise from one room to the next, and it was also more cost-effective to go with a popcorn ceiling rather than a smooth finish – but things have changed. These installations are certainly out of fashion nowadays, and they even represent a considerable health risk in specific situations. As a result, we’ve been offering our popcorn ceiling removal service alongside our drywall installation and drywall repair services for many years now – and we’ve only ever had incredibly positive feedback for the work that we’ve carried out. Below, you can learn more about the popcorn ceiling removal service that we offer, and more about some of the reasons that you might want to consider using it. For any lingering doubts or questions, contact our customer service team without delay.
Undoubtedly the most important reason that you should consider the removal of a popcorn ceiling from your property is the possibility that it’s causing serious damage to you and your family’s health. In times gone by, asbestos was used as a construction material for the installation of popcorn ceilings. As you’re probably already aware, asbestos is a carcinogenic substance that can leading to serious health concerns like cancer. It’s especially damaging for those with pre-existing health conditions – for those who are extra vulnerable. To avoid any severe health risks, you need to have a professional brought in to assess the popcorn ceiling for asbestos, and possibly removal thereafter.
Some people have the impression that every time a popcorn ceiling is removed, it’s because it’s a health risk or because it looks terribly out of fashion, but that’s not true. These ceilings are also removed because the physical condition of the installation ultimately declines over the years. Discoloration, fading, and physical decay are all considerable possibilities after enough time has passed, and obviously that’s not going to leave your room with a good aesthetic. In those cases, we’re more than happy to step in and provide relief.
Of course, there are plenty of people out there that would like to have their popcorn ceilings removed to ensure that their property is looking up-to-date. The popcorn aesthetic, for many people, looks dated and just rubbish. Smooth ceilings make a room lighter, look more modern, and are generally more pleasing on the eye – and having the popcorn ceiling removed could drastically improve the atmosphere of your space.
Due to the nature of popcorn ceiling composition – and the associated health risks relating to it – it’s obviously important that the removal process is completed in a careful, considered fashion. By bringing us in to take care of the procedure, you’re ensuring that you’re kept out of harm’s way, and that there’s no chance anybody in your property will become affected by the process. We complete this type of work with caution and diligence – we don’t make mistakes.
