Is it time to remove your popcorn ceiling? There are many things you will have to ponder over before the task is completed.

 

Make sure you are properly covering the room before beginning. The mess that is going to be made will be hard to clean up if you are not careful. Take a plastic sheet and put it all over the walls and furniture, and floor. This will keep things safe.

 

The process begins with a sprayer that is going to be filled with water. This will help moisten the ceiling and make things easier when you begin to scrape [1].

 

When the popcorn ceiling is as moist as it should be, you will be good to go. This is when you take a putty knife and start scraping away until everything looks as you want [2].

 

It is not a process that should take a very long time and most people can get it done within 30 minutes depending on the size of the room.
