Artex Removal Process
Artex removal is a messy and time-consuming process, but it’s important to do it correctly to avoid damaging your walls. Here’s a step-by-step guide to removing artex:
1. First, you need to prepare the area by covering any furniture or flooring that you don’t want to get dirty. Use dust sheets or old newspapers to protect surfaces.
2. Next, you need to wet the artex with water using a sponge or spray bottle. This will help to loosen the adhesive so that you can remove it more easily.
3. Once the artex is wet, you can start scraping it off with a putty knife or similar tool. Be careful not to damage the underlying plaster surface, and be sure to keep the area well-ventilated so that you don’t inhale any dust or debris.
4. Once you’ve removed as much artex as possible using a putty knife, use a sanding tool to smooth out any remaining bumps or ridges in the wall.
5. Finally, clean off the area with water, sandpaper, and a damp rag to remove any last traces of artex and adhesive. If there are any stubborn spots that won’t come off, try applying a small amount of bleach or vinegar and then wipe it clean again.
Although removing artex can be messy and time-consuming work, if done properly it will prevent further damage to your walls and ensure that your home looks beautiful and polished.
