A popcorn ceiling is made up of either white asbestos or a certain styrofoam product. Determining which material was used is a crucial first step in the removal process since it will influence what steps need to be taken during the removal process. If your popcorn ceiling contains asbestos, necessary safety procedures and precautions will be called for and the area should be properly sealed off to protect you and your loved ones from health dangers. Walls, flooring, furnishings, etc. throughout the entire work area need to be meticulously covered and protected since a significant amount of residue will be produced.
Once the space is properly masked, the texture should be properly prepared for removal.
