Popcorn Ceiling Replacement in Santa Rosa

Popcorn Ceiling Removal (Acoustic Ceilings)

They are called popcorn ceilings, cottage cheese ceilings, or acoustic ceilings. Call them what you will but there is no better way to update your home than to remove these types of ceilings.

The application of acoustic ceilings was applied from the 1930s to the 1990s as a quick way to cover a lot of blemishes in workmanship. The product was originally promoted as a way to absorb sound.

The Inconvenience of Acoustic ceilings

Acoustic ceilings are nearly impossible to keep clean and maintain. Because of their rough surface, they will easily attract dust and cobwebs. Should you try to clean an acoustic ceiling it is very likely you will cause scuffs and nicks that are unattractive to the eye. Furthermore, water stains or smoke stains caused by many sources make them very difficult to clean.

Possible Health Risk

One important thing to remember is that the acoustic ceiling had asbestos up until 1979. By removing these types of ceilings you are not only replacing an “outdated look” for a more pleasing high-end aesthetic look; you are getting rid of a potential health hazard.

The Process to Remove the Acoustic and Update your Ceiling

Our skilled workers at Patch Up Pros will have those ceilings looking modernized in no time.

  • Room Preparation: Our Patch Up Pros crew will first start the process by protecting and preparing the entire workspace. This starts with protective drop cloths, visqueen plastic sheeting, and painter’s masking tape. They will cover all of the furniture in the area or even remove furniture, pictures, etc. when possible. In short, our crews take great care to ensure that everything is protected before any of the work commences.
  • Ceiling Removal: The removal of the acoustic ceiling starts with spraying the ceiling with a non-toxic water-based solution to soften up the acoustic particles on the ceiling. Then our Pros will begin the process of scraping the ceilings down to the drywall surface.
  • Finish Work: After the acoustic ceiling has been removed then our pros will finish the ceiling off with a process that ultimately gives you a nice modern looking ceiling that you commonly see in newer homes.
  • Clean-Up: Finally, we carefully remove all the visqueen and drop cloths and do a thorough cleaning by vacuuming, dusting, and wiping down the walls.
