Artex removal is a tricky business because of the dangers associated with it. If you have an old building where the Artex was applied before 2000, the chances of it having asbestos are very high. And since asbestos is a harmful carcinogen, it’s very dangerous to deal with it without safety precautions.

Prime Plasterers knows how to safely and effectively remove Artex from your house or office. We use state-of-the-art equipment to ensure that every inch of Artex is removed completely, leaving behind only a smooth surface.

Our Professional Plastering Process


Artex can be removed using either steam or an external product. Steam is typically used to remove Artex that is bonded to drywall. However, it may not work well with certain types of Artex. An external product works great for removing any type of Artex.

To remove Artex, we start by cutting off the damaged section of the plasterboard. We then apply our Artex removal solution to the cut edges of the board. Once the Artex is loosened, we scrape it away using our specialised equipment.

Why is Artex Removal Complex?

Artex is a hazardous material that needs to be removed properly. Until 2000, Artex and other texturing materials were known to contain asbestos materials, which is a deadly substance that causes asbestosis and lung cancer. Artex is considered as hazardous waste, so it’s important to dispose of it safely.

You may think that removing Artex is simple, but it isn’t. There are several methods available to remove Artex, including chemical stripping, sandblasting, and steam cleaning. Each method has its pros and cons, so it’s important that you find the right Artex removal contractor.
