How To Strip Wallcoverings » Page 1


1. Find a loose corner and pull upward. If there are no loose corners, use a putty knife to pry one loose and pull. If the paper comes off easily, you’re home free. Just keep pulling until it’s all off the walls.

 

2. Dilute wallpaper remover in water, according to the manufacturer’s directions. Wash the walls, working from the top toward the bottom of the walls. Rinse the walls with clear water and let them dry completely.

 

HOW TO REMOVE STUBBORN WALLCOVERINGS

 

1. If the wallcovering doesn’t pull off easily, it’s time to bring in the big guns. Cover the floor with drop cloths, and then dilute wallpaper remover in a bucket of water, following the manufacturer’s directions.

 

2. Run a perforating tool over the surface of the wallcovering. (It creates holes that let the remover solution penetrate the surface to loosen the adhesive.)
