What To Do


The ceiling in your Jacobsen Home is constructed with 1/2" gypsum board with a knockdown finish.  Ceiling of the nature are durable and require very little care.

What Not To Do


Never clean with harsh or abrasive cleaners or detergents.  Do not use solvents such as gasoline, turpentine, alcohol, paint thinner, or lacquer thinner.                                                                   

 Ceiling Maintenance:

Drywall ceilings require little maintenance.  They can be dusted and cleaned of loose dirt by the use of a vacuum cleaner with attachments, or a soft dry cloth.


 Water Stains on the Ceiling:

Water stains on a ceiling indicated a roof leak, or a condensation problem.  Be sure that this condition has been corrected, or the repair of the stain will be futile.  After the problem has been corrected and the area affected has totally dried, the area can be repainted.  It may be necessary to prime the area where water damage has occurred with a primer formulated before you re-paint the affected area to prevent the water stain from "bleeding" through.
