    Tape up plastic sheeting in doorways as to not have particles spread to other areas of the house because this can be messy. Spray ceilings with water and let sit and soak in then begin scraping off all the popcorn from the ceilings. Very messy and tedious job but well worth it in the end. Hate popcorn ceilings. I always found it on the floor, dust would stick to the popcorn ceiling, outdated etc. I prefer the smooth or textured ceilings over popcorn. I had all of mine removed professionally and am so ecstastic with the end results. I watched the two professionals and this how they did it.
