Do you have stains in your acoustic, (also known as “popcorn” ceiling) from water damage? Here is a tip to clean it up.We’ll assume that your have had the source of the leak fixed before you try to remove the stain.If the ceiling is unpainted acoustic, you can try to use a mixture of one part bleach to two parts water in a hand squeeze pump bottle. (Like a Windex bottle)Make sure you cover anything underneath the spot you don’t want to get bleached. (Furnishings, carpets, etc.)Then, with a spray of the above mixture, lightly wet the stained area and let it sit for about 10 minutes. The stain should disappear! It may take a few applications, but this most often, does the trick.NOTE: Do not try to wipe or rub the spot as it may cause the acoustic to come off of the ceiling.If you get stuck or just want us to help with the repair – we can remove and repair any ceiling defects.
