Popcorn removal can be a messy job, but there are a few tips and tricks to minimize the mess and make the job easier.
Vacuum the area
Cover the area
The first step is to cover the area around the ceiling where you’ll be working. You can use plastic sheeting, a drop cloth, or a tarp to keep the mess contained.
Use a putty knife
To remove the popcorn, use a putty knife or other scraping tool. Start at one edge of the popcorn and slowly work your way down. It’s important to take your time and go slowly to avoid damaging the ceiling.
Wet the popcorn
Once the area is covered, wet the popcorn with a spray bottle of water. This will help to soften the popcorn and make it easier to remove.
Clean the area
Once all of the popcorn has been removed, use a damp cloth to wipe down the area and remove any remaining residue.
After the popcorn has been removed, use the vacuum again to remove any remaining debris.
Following these steps will help minimize mess during popcorn removal and make the job easier. With a little preparation and a few helpful tools, you’ll be able to quickly and efficiently remove popcorn from your ceiling.
