Popcorn ceiling is a ceiling treatment that is either sprayed or painted on. It is also called Stucco or cottage cheese ceiling. It was popularly used in American homes from the 1950s to the 1980s. It became a standard for hallway ceiling at homes, as well as for bedrooms. It is white and bright, and has the ability to reduce noise and hide imperfections. Earlier formulations contained white asbestos fiber, but when the material was banned as a result of the Clean Air Act in the country in 1978, popcorn ceiling treatment became less popular. Later production of popcorn ceilings made use of Styrofoam and paper-based product instead of asbestos.
This texture can be softened and removed by spraying with water then scraping off the material with a putty knife or trowel. However, if it was applied before the asbestos ban, removal should be done by a professional popcorn ceiling removal contractor.One of the specializations of “Drywall Repair Hacienda Heights” is removal of this ceiling treatment, and we handle residential and commercial projects.
