    Why did people ever put thick textured goo on their walls?
    It's there any way to get the stuff off. I've got solid stone walls with lime plaster, in one area there's been some damp and it's pealed off in sheets but the rest is rock solid.
    It has been tested for asbestos.

    Actually I've now discovered that a steamer and a mountain of scraper blades does the job.
    Well that and elbow grease, sweat and blisters

    Glad you found a way. I have goo on my ceiling I need to get rid of.

    But to answer your first question, people do it because it is easier than making the walls smooth and flat.
