When they do, be sure to have all of your other junk ready to go and you’ll be free of even more stuff. That’s a win-win scenario, which is the best situation possible.

Okay, so drop or suspended ceilings are usually installed with a hanging frame system. Which means it’s not directly attached to the ceiling at every square inch. But, it will still take some time and effort to get rid of it. Here’s a brief drop ceiling removal guide you can follow:
  • Clear and cover the floor. Just because it’s not directly attached to the ceiling underneath doesn’t mean it won’t be messy or possibly cause damage to the floor. So, clear the room and cover up the floor.
  • Remove all the ceiling panels. Next, you’ll need to turn off the electricity at the main electrical panel. Then, you can take the panels down, one by one. It’s a good idea to put these in a wheelbarrow or wrap up several together to easily carry them out of the space.
  • Uninstall the lights and wiring. If you aren’t skilled enough to handle electrical work, bring in an experienced, licensed electrician to do the work for you. You’ll need to remove any lights and wiring to install a new ceiling finish. Once all the components are gone, you can then take apart the support grid.
