How to quickly and easily remove the plaster from the wall: important features and stages of dismantling
When during repair it comes to finishing works, it would seem, dismantling the plaster is a simple matter. However, not every coating will quickly remove the spatula and hammer. And this is one of the problems. The second question will arise with garbage collection. Heavy, for example, concrete plaster has an impressive weight. You can pave paths near the private house. And where to get it from the apartment? Let's try to find answers to all these questions.
How to determine that you need to remove the plaster?
Before you make such an important decision, you must carefully examine all the walls and ceiling. This will help figure out the amount of removal. Perhaps a partial cleanup can save the situation.
You can estimate the coverage in the following ways:
- the first gentle evaluation is carried out with a spatula or you can take any scraper, for example, a trowel.If after they are carried out on the surface, small areas are slightly peeled off, then you will not need a complete beating of the plaster. It can be saved with putty;
- when removing old wallpaper plaster stretches behind the canvas, falling off in large pieces, it makes no sense to restore it. Even if some areas remained intact, they should be tapped with a trowel handle or a hammer. A dull sound will indicate those places where the surface layer does not have a hitch with the wall, and it must be removed;
- There are situations when the old plaster is very durable, but a damp spot has appeared on its surface. Do not try to dry this place. The layer of this area will already be weakened and will eventually fall off anyway. Only one way out, damp coating should be removed, plus a 500 mm dry area around it. The situation with a fat spot is similar. Plaster must be cut down to the base of the wall;
- Strong cracked plaster should not be removed. Here you can get by with minor repairs.
