So read on and get started on restoring your home after removing the popcorn ceiling!

Popcorn Ceiling Removal Instructions

Clear the Space

After you've finished removing the popcorn, the first thing you should do is clean the area. This includes the floor as well as the walls. Begin by sweeping up any debris that fell during the removal process. Then, using a vacuum with attachments, remove any dust or dirt that may have been left behind. After you've finished vacuuming, use a mild soap and water solution to wash the walls. Before proceeding to the next step, ensure that the entire ceiling has dried completely.

Restore Any Damage

After you've removed the textured ceilings and drywall mud, you must repair any damage caused by the popcorn ceiling removal process. This could include plaster cracks or drywall holes. Drop cloths and a putty knife can be used to help remove popcorn ceilings. If you are unsure how to repair the damage, we recommend that you hire a professional to do the painting. Even when dealing with drywall beneath, they'll be able to repair the damage quickly and efficiently.

Prime the Surface with a Primer

After cleaning and repairing the area, apply a primer to the drywall compound surface. This will aid in the preparation of the surface for painting. Make sure to use a primer designed specifically for popcorn ceilings. Allow the primer to dry completely before dealing with the bare drywall or joint compound.

Select the Correct Color or Pattern

Now that the entire ceiling has been primed and is ready to go, it's time to select the appropriate color or pattern for the skim coat. If you're unsure, we recommend consulting with a professional to conceal flaws in half an hour. They will be able to assist you in selecting the ideal color or pattern for your home in order to achieve a perfectly smooth ceiling.

The Ceiling Should be Painted

We recommend painting a light color on a white popcorn ceiling. This will help to brighten the space and make it appear larger. If you have a colored popcorn ceiling, you can paint it the same color or choose a different color entirely. Simply use a primer before painting to ensure that the new paint adheres properly.


It's always best to stick to the guide when getting a new paint job. After all, that is why it exists! If you're looking for more information about the after care for your area after a popcorn ceiling removal process, check out this blog post.
