House fire

We had a fire last night. Started in the basement - an alarm clock caught on fire. FD came and helped clear out the smoke. it did make it to the second story, but not too much soot there. My question is - before the insurance guy and contractor come: we have popcorn ceilings in most areas. Can we have them removed instead of cleaned? Would it be around the same price? We don't like them. Thanks - please help soon - they're going to be here in 45 minutes.

House fire

You will need to talk to your insurance agent & see what they cover

House fire

We have a very good policy - Grade 1A. I am just wondering how they would get the smoke smell out, because they are so porous. I thought maybe the cost for removing them would be comparable to cleaning them?
