Popcorn ceiling


Stoner's suggestion of a 6" finishing knife is right on. You will not get as good a job with big, wide, flexible blades... especially on a pole.

If you promise not to tell anyone, I will admit that (when possible) I use an actual garden hose run in from an outside hose bib. Of course the gun on the end sprays a very FINE mist. Works especially well with painted ceilings... somehow they seem to require a fair amount of soaking.

I use a garden hose with a nozzel that has an adujustable flow control with multiple settings. preferably set to mist or vertical

Popcorn ceiling


The recommended process for dealing with building products containing asbestos IN GOOD CONDITION, is encapsulation, rather than removal. If the ceiling is intact, then covering it is not an issue, provided that you don't disguise the fact that asbestos exists or try to misrepresent it to a future buyer.
