Tips for Cleaning & Painting a Textured Ceiling

Here’s a question from our 6/22/2019 Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.

Terry from Connecticut says, “What do you suggest I use to clean the ceiling in our bathroom? Once the ceiling is clean, how do you suggest that I paint it over?”

We tell Terry to brush off any loose dirt, and then very lightly wash the ceiling with a soft-bristle brush and oxygen bleach. After it’s clean, you can add a mold-killing primer to the ceiling before painting.

Listen above for the segment!
