is possible to Clean a Popcorn Ceiling versus Repainting it
By Mark J. Donovan

dusty and littered with cobwebs. In some cases, such as in the kitchen, stains
can occur on the popcorn ceiling. If you do not feel up to the task of

popcorn ceiling is to pull out the vacuum cleaner, install the brush attachment,
and then simply run the brush over the entire ceiling to vacuum up the dust and
Alternatively you can use a large
soft bristle brush or a duster, however these tools have the tendency to just
blow the dust off the ceiling and into your face and room. The vacuum approach
is much cleaner, though a little more effort.
stains, the best method for cleaning a popcorn
ceiling is to use warm water, mild soap and a damp
rag. Gently wipe the area with the damp rag, taking
care not to wipe too hard or for too long. If you
soak the popcorn ceiling it may begin to separate
from the drywall and flake off. In the event that
this does happen or you cannot remove the stain,
then visit your local home improvement center and
purchase a small can of ready-mixed popcorn ceiling
Use a drywall taping knife to spread
the popcorn ceiling texture onto the damaged or stained ceiling area. If
necessary, after the popcorn ceiling mixture has dried, paint the area with
matching ceiling paint.
