Popcorn ceiling?
1 Attachment(s)
I think it must be original 1949 but i though i ask you guys:banana:
It's located in the basement entry way, looks like it hasn't been touched in a long time.

yea, that's a textured surface alright. What's underneath the texture?

just what you see there brown board, it is hanging on the ceiling by the trim on the edges, so it could come down easily in think in a couple of pieces.
I guess spray it down with some water is simple enough. It's high up 15ft in the side basement entrance way. I guess they might have thought to fire proof it?

I could leave it in but i'm trying to gut every bit out. The strapping is slightly infected with this fungus, it is really vague but it's there.

I think i just stick the hose up there, not much electrical around but a switch but i'll turn it all off to be safe. What happens if a box gets wet?
