How to Remove a Popcorn Ceiling

Find out the best way to remove a popcorn ceiling. Use a spray bottle to soak a section with water and let it sit for a while. Then work your way through with a 6-inch wide spackle knife. Block off the room from the rest of the house with plastic sheeting. Put a fan in the door facing out so it depressurizes the room and open a door or a window on the other side so that any flakes in the air get pulled out. Also be sure to wear respiratory protection.
