There are few tasks around your home that are more tedious and frustrating than stripping wallpaper of the walls where you want to change it or paint.

One of the biggest problems with wallpaper is that your decorating taste changes over the years and if you want to change it you can’t simply put new wallpaper over it or paint it. Every last bit of wallpaper and glue has to come of the wall or the new wallpaper or paint will not stick and your finished job will look rough and uneven. There really is nothing that looks worse than worn, yellowed and faded wallpaper; it can make even the most nicely furnished rooms in your home look dull and drab.

Not only is wallpaper extremely difficult to remove, if the removal is not done right you can also damage the plaster or drywall base that it is applied to. So that is why it is always best to have a trained professional do the job. It is not as expensive as you think; especially if you factor in the time and aggravation you will save by not having to do this tedious task yourself.

The wallpaper removal process

We will first take great pains to protect the surrounding area. We will cover the floors and also remove, cover or mask any objects that may be affected by the wallpaper removal process. After everything is protected we will then carefully score the wallpaper; this helps the solution we will put on next to completely penetrate thoroughly to the back of the wallpaper. After the solution sits for about 15 minutes the removal process can begin.

Next comes the actual removal of the wallpaper. Sometimes it comes off easily and other times it must be scraped off with one of several different size putty knives; this step must be done very carefully so as not to hurt the surface of the wall. After all the wallpaper has been completely removed the technician will go over the wall again to make sure there is no adhesive left on it.
