Artex was in the past a widely used approach to finishing walls and ceilings. Artex is a water based covering which is scraped and made into a textured surface. It can look a little old-fashioned nowadays, though, and many homeowners are looking to get rid of the artex in their homes. Always be cautious when handling artex, especially older artex, as it could contain asbestos. Asbestos was found in some older artexes, so be sure to have a survey done to be certain of whether it is present in your artex, since it could really constrain the options available for artex removal.

There are a variety of methods 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 can sometimes damage the wall or ceiling behind the artex, so it is at times worthwhile going right back to the original plasterboard or wall base. There’s also products available which can make this technique of getting rid of artex easier. These products simply 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. An alternative 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 finish. Artex can also have plasterboard installed over the top and then be plastered over. Additionally, some artex can be covered with a thick wallpaper.

Regardless of the procedure used, artex removal is certainly possible, provided appropriate care is taken around the possible existence of asbestos.
