    Interior painting teams at CertaPro Painters of Des Moines, IA are here to remove your popcorn ceiling

    The interior painting experts at CertaPro Painters of Des Moines IA are well versed in in every aspect of house painting, including the removal of those old and decrepit popcorn ceilings. Despite being an eyesore, popcorn ceiling can also be extremely harmful to your health because it can contain asbestos. Asbestos is a mineral that was used in the past for many products, chiefly used for its sound absorption, affordability, and its resistance to fire, heat and chemical damage. Popcorn ceilings have, in the past, made use of asbestos, and prolonged exposure can have drastic health effects. Asbestos has been linked to fatal illnesses such as: mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis. The significant health risks associated with popcorn ceilings have prompted many homeowners to get them removed from their houses.

    Popcorn ceiling removal is a specialty service offered by the interior painting services of CertaPro Painters of Des Moines IA. If you are looking to repaint a room with popcorn ceilings, or you are just looking to remove these potentially hazardous ceilings from your home, we can help you! The removal of popcorn ceilings can be difficult as well as dangerous. Before you decide to remove your popcorn ceiling, gather a sample of it in a bag and send it to the Environmental Protection Agency for testing. If the results come back positive for asbestos, you will need to have a certified asbestos removal contractor take care of the ceiling for you. The interior painting specialists at CertaPro Painters of Des Moines IA have experience in removing these ceilings in a way that leaves your home just as clean as it was before the removal. The process usually involves removing your furniture, light switch plates, and fixtures from the room in question. After the necessary items have been removed, your house painting specialists will cover the walls and flooring with heavy duty plastic sheets. Once your home is sufficiently protected with plastic, we will spray the ceiling with small amounts of water so that the popcorn ceiling just scrapes away with the use of a joint knife.

    Whether you want to remove your popcorn ceiling due to asbestos or its unsightly appearance, CertaPro Painters of Des Moines IA can help you do it. Check your local listings for CertaPro Painters to find the nearest location to you.
