Wallpaper Removal FAQs


What Are the Issues with Removing Wallpaper?

Removing wallpaper is time consuming, messy and requires patience. Most removal processes require steam or a damp sponge. If you use too much water, it can damage the underlying sheet rock. When you begin to peel the wallpaper away from the wall it may come off in tiny strips.

Keep a trash bag handy and dispose of the wallpaper as you go. Discarded slightly damp pieces of wallpaper can easily adhere to other surfaces. It is easy to create nicks and holes in the underlying sheet rock when removing wallpaper. An extensive amount of patch and repair work may be needed to prepare the walls for painting.

What Is the Trick to Removing Wallpaper?

The trick to removing wallpaper is lightly moistening the paper using a spray bottle or damp sponge. Fill the spray bottle with hot water and a small amount of fabric softener (about 1/4 cup of fabric softener per gallon of hot water). Lightly saturate one section of the wallpaper at a time starting at the top left and working your way down.

How Long Does It Take to Remove Wallpaper?

Removing wallpaper from an average-sized room can take a full day or longer. The time it takes can depend on the age of the wall and how much prep work was done when the wallpaper was applied.
