A Little History Regarding These Acoustic Ceilings
These sprayed on elements started to become popular in the late ’50s.
It was popular because it was simpler and less expensive than painting and they believed it might help reduce noise too.
Remodelers learned it was an effective technique to covering up holes, stains or homeowner mistakes.
Many homeowners liked it also because it was stylish and helped with noise reduction.
Unfortunately, at the start, some of these treatments used asbestos.
The popularity of these products began to change in the 1980s and 1990s too.
Many homeowners began to want a ceiling surface that matched the walls.
Houses built around this time often had acoustical ceilings applied in the hallways, bedrooms and living room.
Kitchens and bathrooms did not use them.
Five Reasons To Have It Scraped Off
- It’s hard to repair
- It’s hard to paint when discolored or stained
- If you bump it – little pieces fall down
- It gets dusty
- You can’t clean it very well
The Scraping and Removal Process
The first thing that happens is everything in the room gets removed.
After the furniture is moved out, other things such as outlet covers, smoke detectors, air vent covers or light fixtures will also get removed too if possible.
Plastic sheeting will get put up throughout the room to trap every particle that comes off.
Moisture is applied to the ceiling. The surface soaks up the water and gets soft.
Once the surface is soft, it can be properly scraped off.
As soon as it is all scraped off and on the floor, all the plastic sheeting is folded up and it’s taken away.
The surface is not yet ready for painting. It will need to be recoated and made suitable for primer.
Finally it’s time to get out the primer and paint.

Average Removal Cost In Olathe
Want to find out how much this may cost in locations like yours?
When establishing the price of your project, most sheetrock specialists will give attention to the amount of hours the job will take.
Additional variables may be involved though. And asbestos may be a factor.
Properties built earlier than 1980 may have products which were made with asbestos in them.
Owners of older properties need to have their texture tested before your contractor begins to strip it off.
The home test kits are easy enough for any homeowner to do.
To get yours analyzed, you just have to send in a pretty small sample for screening.
You can get these test kits online. They are not too expensive.
With some luck, your analysis will come back negative for asbestos.
A positive result will lead to a far more troublesome removal procedure.
