Difficulty Level

Removing the old wallpaper is a moderately difficult task but a neat room provides an entirely different ambiance to the user.

Instructions

  • Take all the furniture out of the room or keep them at the center of the room and cover them with a plastic sheet. Also remove everything from the wall including the receptacle plates and switches after shutting off the circuit breakers and keep them at any ideal place. Cover the floor and carpets with cloths and can even nail them to keep them in place.
  • In certain areas the wallpaper can be stripped easily and hence try to move up the seam of the wallpaper, preferably a corner. If it comes up easily then grab the end and peel of slowly at a 45 degree angle and if it tears and sticks in between then it needs some other techniques such as hot water and chemicals to remove.
  • Get a wallpaper scoring tool from the nearby hardware store and score the wallpaper lightly which helps to cut the paper surface.
  • Mix some warm water with wallpaper removers instead of wall paper removers even fabric softeners can be used. Dip a sponge or paint roller in this mixture and wet one or two wallpaper sections with this. Allow the wallpaper to soak and this helps to soften the glue and loosen the wallpaper which will then comes out easily.
  • Use a wide blade putty knife to slide under the edge of the wallpaper and peel off at 45 degree angle. If the section is too strong wet it again and peel off. Even then some pieces remain intact and if they remain on the wall use 80 grit sandpaper to sand them out.
  • After removing the entire wallpaper wash the wall with a mixture of water and TSP and this helps to remove the glue from the wall and provides a smooth surface where new wallpaper can be pasted.
  • If you want to paint the wall then sand the wall well to remove all traces of glue and then paint.
