Preparation and Removal
A new wall should be fully cured and primed, painted walls are sanded, and all cracks will be filled to complete wallpapering preparation. When replacing old wallpaper, proper removal techniques are used depending on the type of existing wallcovering. Wallpaper removal can be messy, so we always take precautions to cover floors, counters, appliances and exposed areas.
Once wallpaper and adhesive residue are removed using moisture or chemical agents, the wall will be sanded, patched as necessary and primed for proper adhesion. Strippable wallpaper is more easily peeled off, but still leaves a thin layer of backing that should be removed properly before installing new wallcoverings. Many of today’s wallcoverings are vinyl or vinyl coated so they are more difficult to remove using stripping solutions.
