A fresh coat of paint can truly transform any room, but that transformation can’t happen when wallpaper stands in the way wall-to-wall.

Although wallpaper has been used for hundreds of years to decorate interior spaces, it eventually becomes worn or goes out of style.

Unfortunately, wallpaper removal can be a messy, frustrating, and even damaging process, especially when undertaken by inexperienced workers.

Which Wallpaper Removal Technique Works the Best?

Wallpaper can be removed in different ways. Newer vinyl-faced wallpapers can sometimes simply be peeled off. Older wallpaper is more likely to require moisture in the form of wetting or steaming.

The “best” technique depends on a number of factors, including the age and type of paper, the type of adhesive used, and the type and condition of the wall surface beneath the paper.

Using the wrong technique can cause damage and lead to unnecessary repair expenses. For example, excess water or aggressive scraping can damage gypsum board beneath the wallpaper.

A professional painting contractor with experience in wallpaper removal will be able to use the least-damaging, most efficient technique for removing unwanted wallpaper.

Common Mistakes & Hazards with DIY Wallpaper Removal

Some homeowners elect to remove wallpaper themselves rather than call in a professional. If you want to tackle this task, be aware of the following hazards:

Wallpaper Removal in Connecticut
  • Water damage. Make sure to protect floors and other surfaces from water damage when using steam or wetting to remove wallpaper.
  • Wall damage. Scraping can easily damage the wall beneath the wallpaper. If aggressive scraping is necessary, this usually means that the old wallpaper adhesive hasn’t been properly softened.
  • Scalding. Available from rental centers, wallpaper steamers can be effective in removing some types of wallpaper. Make sure to use steaming equipment carefully to avoid injury.
  • Improper surface prep. Even when wallpaper has been completely removed from a wall, the wall surface is likely to require extra prep work prior to painting. Residue from the wallpaper adhesive as well as surface imperfections must be dealt with if you want a beautiful painted finish.
