In 4 easy steps you can remove that bumpy lumpy impossible to clean texture off your ceilings with EZ Strip Popcorn Ceiling Remover! No matter the layers of paint or type of texture popcorn, swirl, stomp, etc., if it's on your ceilings or walls drywall texture has never been easier to remove yourself!
Here's how it works...
Here are few tips for each step to help make the process easier!
Some agitation sprayers do work but the product is a thick gel so it sticks to ceilings so airless sprayers do not work.
Make sure you apply a thick even coat of product anywhere the product is missed the texture will not soften!
Second COVER with plastic and LET SET, a thin roll of painter's plastic is perfect for this and a second pair of hands doesn't hurt either. Plastic will keep the product wet and working during your set time.
If the product dries out it stops working so get it covered as soon as possible for best results.
Set times can vary but an overnight or 12 hour set time is the most common for easy removal.
Third is to SCRAPE once material is softened. Be sure to find the right angle and use a wide scraper (at least 6 inches).
Catch the material in a plastic lined painter's tray for easy clean up material should scrape off easy you can lightly spritz with water as you scrape to help. Be careful to not use too much water or you can damage the drywall!
Scrape along the tape seems you do not want to remove these or too much of the material keeps them together just the textured material on top!
Last step is to WIPE surface clean with water. Use a damp white clean cloth not too saturated as too much water will damage the drywall.
Wipe surface clean of any remaining product and let dry out completely before patching and painting.
Remember that texture could be hiding imperfections in the drywall or you may gouge the surface during scraping so be prepared for touch ups before you paint!
Smooth ceilings and walls are just around the corner! Now you can get there on your own with a little knowledge and some elbow grease. Work in manageable sections, do the prep before you start. Put up plastic anywhere you don't want stripped, protect your walls (if not what you want stripped) and floors! Make sure you have all the tools you need before you start.
