Removing wallpaper does not have to be a daunting task. As long as you know where to start and what tools to gather, the process can be rather hassle-free. Remove a small piece of wallpaper from the intended area in order to see exactly what you’re working with. Once you’ve gained the correct insight on how the wallpaper was applied, start stripping it by scoring it with a special scoring tool. Take a small garden mist tool, and dampen the remaining wallpaper in order to loosen it up for easier removal.
- Start by removing a small piece of wallpaper in order to see which type of application method was used.
- Start stripping away what you can by pulling at loose edges wherever it is possible.
- Spritz the wall with a garden misting tool so that the remaining wallpaper can naturally lift itself up.
