Professional Acoustic & Popcorn Ceiling Removal Services
“Acoustic Ceilings” is something that comes up a lot for homeowners and commercial landlords, especially given the lawsuit happy nature of places like Los Angeles County, Ventura County, and Orange County. In reality yes, it’s just a ceiling, but to some people acoustic ceilings, also known as popcorn ceilings, just have to go! Although they more closely resemble cottage cheese than they do popcorn, acoustic ceilings were dubbed as such in the late 1950’s. The ceiling treatment was inexpensive, provided sound proofing and was easy to apply but it carried with it two inherently negative issues.
First of all it contained asbestos and lead, which meant contact with the material under the right conditions could lead to severe health problems or even cause death. Secondly, it was specifically created to cover up defects in ceiling construction, stains, structural cracks from earthquakes (usually in places like Los Angeles, San Diego, and Riverside) or shifting foundations, and other poor workmanship.

Removing the acoustic popcorn ceilings from a home will not only improve the air quality, but it can bring the home up to date as well. This has been a trend in home remodeling in Southern California for years now and it shows no signs of stopping any time soon. When remodeling your home or office, much like when cleaning, you should start from the top and work your way down. A home remodel is the best time to get something like this done. If you’re looking to improve your home, then call in the help of a popcorn ceiling removal services company to rid yourself of the highly dangerous and dated material.
Get Rid of Harmful Popcorn Ceilings AND Increase Your Property’s Value
Plus, updating ceilings before selling a home can have a huge return on the investment as any real estate agent or general contractor will tell you. A fresh, updated ceiling may be the look that sets your home a part from the rest and thus commands a higher sale price than those in the area. Homeowners always have their eye on the budget, but hiring a professional acoustic ceiling removal services company is the only option when removing this type of finish. Popcorn ceilings contain asbestos, which the United States government has officially declared to be a hazardous substance.
