As mentioned by DMC Maintenancs services use a long hadled scrapper to get most of the polystyrene off, the remaining glue blobs can be further removed using a steam wall paper remover and loads of elbow grease.

If you have a lathe and plaster ceiling you could loose it but try a long handled haevy duty floor scaper
