How to Properly Remove Wallpaper

Do you have wallpaper in your home that you just can’t bear the sight of? Are you ready to get rid of it? Well, the process of removing wallpaper seems like an easy task, but it isn’t! Here are some wallpaper removal tips, so you don’t ruin your walls!


Step 1: Preparation

The first things you should consider before removing wallpaper is the age of the wallpaper and the surrounding light switches, moldings and floors. You want to be mindful of these things because older wallpaper is harder to remove, so you want to prepare by having the proper tools. Being mindful of light switches, molding, and floors is important because you will be using water and want to make sure you are there are no electric outages during the removal process.


Step 2: Tools

For a successful removal, you will need: razor scrapers, drop cloths, masking tape, wallpaper remover solvent, water, bucks, wall sponges, and anything else you think will be necessary depending on what wallpaper you have in your space.


Step 3: The Process

When removing wallpaper, i’s important to keep an eye on how much water or solvent you’re using to avoid damaging your walls. A wallpaper removal process can quickly become a nightmare by using too much water, so it’s important to be mindful and do your research before you complete the job yourself.
