What are some safety tips to remember when applying stucco to a ceiling?

Converting a ceiling with a smooth surface into a stucco ceiling can be a messy but relatively simple project. But to do it safely you will need to observe a few rules.

  1. Be cautious when using a ladder when applying your stucco with a sprayer. As you spray the ceiling, your attention will be on the ceiling. For a more secure footing, always stand on a solid floor.
  2. As you look upward, some of the stucco you'll be spraying will eventually fall onto your face. To protect your eyes, wear goggles.
  3. Your floor will be slippery from stucco that falls on it. Wearing shoes with smooth soles will help you avoid slipping.
