How difficult is to strip your wallpaper?
The difficulty level usually depends on a few factors like:
- Number of layers of wallpaper.
- Adhesive used to stick it to the walls.
- Drywall surface condition beneath the wallpaper.
- Extent of damage to the wallpaper surface.
Rarely does any wallpaper come off in clean and uniform fashion. Therefore, leave the job to BRS Painting of St. Louis, who with their special techniques, equipment and knowledge will simplify this tedious task for you. Even if there is any damage, our experts know how to deal with it and set things right.
What is the most effective way to remove wallpaper?
The first basic step is to make sure the flooring is protected while the wallpaper is being removed. To ensure the solution sprayed on the wallpaper can penetrate properly, it needs to be scored carefully without causing any divots or damage to the underlying drywall. Once the scoring is complete, a pump sprayer is used to spray the solution (generally DIF is used) on to the wallpaper. It needs to be left on the wall for 15 minutes before the wallpaper can be removed.
BRS Painting of St. Louis technicians will get to work as soon as the solution has done its job. As far as possible, we try to remove the wallpaper in uniform sheets. If it does not come off in sheets, a putty knife is used to remove the wallpaper in small sections. The underlying adhesive is also scraped off with the putty knife. To get a great finish, it is really important to get all the adhesive and wallpaper off. The underlying drywall and plaster should fixed if it is damaged in any manner. Joint compound can be used to repair bigger areas.
Once all the surfaces are clean and uniform, and have had enough time to air and dry, our technicians will do the necessary painting and finishing. Your once faded and dull walls will take a life of their own and add that extra bit of brightness to your home.
