It is possible to Clean a Popcorn Ceiling versus Repainting it
By Mark J. Donovan
|Over time a popcorn ceiling becomes 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 repainting the ceiling you can alternatively try cleaning the popcorn ceiling.
The simplest method for cleaning a 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 cobwebs.
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.
If necessary, after the popcorn ceiling mixture has dried, paint the area with matching ceiling paint.
