When it comes to wallpaper removals, there are only a few proven techniques available to you to get the job the done right. Here are the most proven wallpaper removal techniques, and the tools and time required of you to get it done. The key to wallpaper removal techniques is not damaging the drywall or plaster underneath. If you’re undertaking a wallpaper removals project, your best bet is to invest in a special tool that scores the wallpaper prior to stripping. These hand held tools poke numerous holes in the wallpaper (but not the drywall) that allow for chemicals to be applied that work their way in and break down the adhesive that holds the wallpaper to the wall. Applying moisture to them, and thus reducing their effectiveness could easily remove older adhesives. Newer wallpaper adhesive, however, is designed to resists moisture, and thus requires a chemical application to get it to release its hold on your walls. Once you’ve perforated the wallpaper and applied the chemical, you should be able to easily remove the wallpaper without too much hassle. Before you start be aware that wallpaper removal can be labor intensive but we have the best price for that and could cause severe damage to the walls. Most removal damage is due to the lack of a wallpaper primer before the walls were wallpapered, resulting in the glue being absorbed into the wallboard. The top layers of wallboard (paper) will try to come off with the wallpaper backing. If this occurs in large areas, call a professional.
There are many different types of wallpaper on the market today. Some are dry stripable, solid vinyl and fabric backed papers can usually be removed by simply pulling them from the wall without wetting. Most residential wallpapers are of the ” vinyl coated “type. Vinyl coated papers are by far the most common in residential homes. The vinyl face of these papers is usually “dry strippable” meaning that the face will separate and leave only the paper backing on the wall. Start by removing as much as the vinyl face as possible. Find a loose corner, you may need a putty knife or scraper to get started. After all the vinyl wallpaper face is removed the wallpaper backing should also be removed. The wallpaper r backing will require a wet removal. Fill a five gallon bucket to about half full with warm water, add about a cap full of fabric softener. Turn off the electrical power to the room. Apply this solution to the wall with a paint roller or garden sprayer, a sponge can be used in corners. Wet a four or five foot section of the wall and make sure the wall section remains saturated with the solution for about ten minutes. Remove the wet backing with a four or six inch putty knife or scraper.
After all the backing is removed finish cleaning the walls with a hand sponge and fresh solution of fabric softener and warm water. Allow the walls to dry and apply a wallpaper primer if you plan to re- wallpaper the walls. If you plan to paint apply an acrylic primer/sealer to the walls before painting, we work 7 says in a week and you can call us on 0423688352 anytime.
