Wallpaper Removal

Topic: Give any home a new look by trading in old wallpaper for something new. But getting from “A” to “B” design-wise is much easier said than done.

To make stripping wallpaper an easier chore, rent an electric wallpaper stripper. The only additional tool needed is a wide manual putty knife or stripping tool.

Tips for use

Start with Hot tap water in the machine.
Do not use an extension cord. Power loss over the length of an extension cord will result in never getting steam
Once the temperature of the water reaches boiling steam will appear.
Hold the steam pan on the wall at a leading edge of the paper for a few seconds
Once the glue has softened, move the pan to the next edge while using the scraper knife to begin peeling the paper back.
Repeat this process over the entire surface until job is completed.

Note Once the steam cools down, it will return to water state so put towels along the floor if you do not want to have puddles on your floor.

For waterproof wallpapers such as those installed in a bathroom or kitchen, you can rent a perforating roller to perforate the paper allowing steam to soften the glue easier.
