Remove Dated Textures from Your Home with Ease

It’s time to update your home and tear down that outdated texture from your walls and ceilings! Applications of coatings known as artex, acoustical, popcorn, plaster and cottage cheese gave a bumpy or swirly texture that was conducive to covering up construction flaws and ceilings. Impossible to clean and extremely difficult to paint this type of cover up for your walls has long past its appeal. Not only has this type of décor been labeled an eye sore but also thought of as a messy job when it comes time to remove it. It’s always been a difficult job involving either toxic chemicals or vast amounts of water to remove the thick plaster coatings from your home. And when these textures have been painted the job becomes even more complicated. Now there is a safe solution to texture removal with X-Tex Textured Coatings Remover. X-Tex is an effective water based remover that can penetrate multiple layers of paint and texture without the need to spray large amounts of water or use harsh chemicals in the removal process. X-Tex’s no drip gel clings 100% to all surfaces and keeps working longer for superior performance.
Not only are these textures outdated depending on the age of coating they can also be hazardous to your health. Textured products like textured paint and textured plaster coatings prior to the 1980s contained asbestos and were widely used in homes and commercial buildings. While the use of asbestos in these products was phased out during the 1980s, textured coatings and paints that contain asbestos are still present in a number of older homes and buildings. If you’re planning to renovate an area in your home that has textured paint or plaster please use extreme caution. X-Tex can be used to safely remove textured coatings without creating dust. Know what you’re risking when you work with material from old buildings and protect yourself against asbestos.  When asbestos fibers are breathed in, they may get trapped in the lungs and remain there for a long time. Over time, these fibers can accumulate and cause scarring and inflammation which can affect breathing and lead to serious health problems, cancer, and even death.
If you want to remove textured coatings in your home that may be contaminated with asbestos we highly recommend you get a professional to test for asbestos. Once you’re ready consider using X-Tex Textured Coatings Remover the safe environmentally friendly option for texture removal. X-Tex is designed to keep the material being removed wet for safe removal without creating harmful dust that could be breathed in. With no fumes or harsh solvents this product is ideal for texture removal in your home. If you want to do the job yourself one of the most important methods to use to prevent possible asbestos exposure is to work wet and never dry scrape or sand old textured paints or coatings in buildings built before 1985 to ensure your safety.
