Artex used to be a widely used method of finishing walls and ceilings. Artex is a water based covering that is scraped and made into a textured surface. It may look a little bit old-fashioned nowadays, though, and lots of homeowners want to get rid of the artex in their homes. Always be careful when managing artex, especially older artex, as it could contain asbestos. Asbestos was utilised in some older artexes, so ensure that you have a survey done to be sure of whether or not it exists in your artex, as it might really restrict the options available for artex removal.

There are several approaches available to remove artex. One is by using a steam stripper to heat up the artex to the point where it can be scraped away. However, this could sometimes damage the wall or ceiling behind the artex, so it is often worthwhile going straight back to the original plasterboard or wall base. There are also products available which will make this process of getting rid of artex easier. These products just need applying over the artex and then to be left for a period of time, often overnight. They can then be removed along with the artex. Another option for artex removal is to simply plaster over it. This will require any especially high details of the existing artex to be sanded down, and then plaster can be applied over the top for a smooth carry out. Artex can also have plasterboard installed over the top and then be plastered over. Additionally, some artex can be covered with a thick wallpaper.

Whatever the process used, artex removal is definitely possible, provided appropriate care is taken around the possible existence of asbestos.
