About this deal

The second time was much easier - scraping was difficult but pulling off entire boards was much easier. We had a lot of refilling to do and now realise that the last owner put the artex on to hide these holes. Work with textured decorative coatings will not normally be licensable work, as work with this material will usually not meet the conditions in the definition of licensable work in regulation 2(1). The instructions say that you should leave the remover on for at least an hour but you can leave it overnight for extra stubborn areas. Artex ceilings completed before 1985 will almost certainly contain asbestos and those added between 1985 and 2000 may still do so.

Why any first time occupant would artex their walls is beyond me, as its been out of fashion for longer than the house has stood, so hopefully they will be pristine below the surface.

You will also need protective glasses, a proper dust mask, a large paint brush, rubbish bags and lots of sheeting. Leaving the X-Tex on too long can result is it soaking through to the layer underneath but careful removal should cause no damage. So I applied another coat and left it overnight, actually for about 18 hours, then I sprayed it with water to reactivate it, left it for about an hour, then had another go at it, but it still didn't seem to help. Covering the floor is a must - covered in the gel, the artex comes off in a sticky mess and it's a lot easier to tidy up if you first lay paper down, however be prepared to get your feet stuck to the paper if you accidently tread in it!

X-Tex is the best and by far the safest solution to removing asbestos based Artex as there is no dust and all of the asbestos contaminates are held in a stabilised way. I bought 1 tub of this stuff, which is a very small tub I might add and wouldn’t have any chance of covering a wall. Below you will find detailed information which will help you understand what cost is relevant to you and why. If you are planning on repairing or removing Artex textured coatings from ceilings or walls in your home you should seek the advice of a professional Asbestos Surveyor. The foil prevents the X-Tex® from drying out and also forces the product down and in most cases softens both the emulsion and the artex® in one application.Although the asbestos removal cost is lower it will leave you with a surface that will require replacing or reboarding. Formulated by Eco Solutions from the most advanced, patented water-based technology using ” science not solvents”. Popular in the 1970s s ome older artex may contain asbestos, thus shouldn’t be scraped or sanded down without prior advice from an asbestos specialist as this could potentially damage your health. Artex® is a water-based covering, usually used to decorate ceilings, and generally brought to a textured finish with the use of a brush or comb. To enable the Artex removal to take place the contractor will need an adequate supply of electric and water for the duration of the project.
