Dirty Ceiling


After building our house in 1990, we decided to update the foyer light. After taking it down, the ceiliing perimeter around the base is dirty (I'm sure 20 years of dust). The ceiling is a light popcorn. I'm sure it was sprayed on with the paint mixed in.

How do I clean this area without scrubbing off the ceiling texture?

Dirty Ceiling


Might want to check with a couple of realtors in your area, now might be the time to remove the popcorn. If the popcorn was already painted you can use a roller, if not it will need sprayed.
