Wallpaper Removal Services
Wallpaper removal is often a DIY type of chore. It is also the type of chore that quickly frustrates people and becomes a bigger issue than it should have ever been. Knowing how to properly use wallpaper removal tools and wallpaper removal steamers – and knowing when to use them – should not be underestimated. Dallas Paints provides quality craftsmanship on even the smallest tasks.
There are certain things you should know about your wall in order to make the process go easier, whether you are DIYing or not:
- What method was used to put the paper on the wall?
- How old is the wallpaper
- What type of wallpaper is it?
- How was everything sealed up at the end of the job?
Our experts can evaluate your wall to determine these factors and decide the best course of action if you are unaware or can’t recall the details. Call for a quick and easy estimate.
Common Wallpaper Removal Questions
We get a lot of wallpaper removal questions. We have tried to answer the most common ones here. If you have any further questions, or are convinced you need the service, contact us or book an appointment today!
- What is the best homemade wallpaper remover?
The best remover will depend on how the wallpaper was initially applied and sealed. Generally speaking, the same wallpaper removal tools we use, solvents and streamers, are available to the DIY crowd.
The problem is the cost for a single usage (you will want to rent) and the learning curve tends to take away from the DIY draw. But to answer the question, steam and a wallpaper removal tool built to address your wallpaper adhesive.
- How much does wallpaper removal cost?
It depends on how much paper is being removed. Some jobs are charged by the area, some by the room. We will try and give you an estimate that is fair to the task at hand. Some services can cost roughly $1.50 per sq.ft. while in other circumstances it makes more sense to give a quote by the room. You can expect a larger bathroom to cost around $700 for removal.
Doing it yourself will save you from the service cost but you will still need supplies and you use your own time for the task. You also risk damaging your floors or fixtures.
- How do you clean walls after removing wallpaper?
The first step is to scrape off any adhesive left behind. You want to get the walls looking as bare as possible so you can check for damage or mold. Afterward, you will need to scrub with warm water and then a household cleaner to remove the last traces of anything on the wall.
It can be time-consuming and annoying, but all the residue needs to be removed.
- How do you get stubborn wallpaper off?
While a wallpaper removal steamer and the correct solvents can remove nearly any wallpaper, some DIY situations don’t have these tools. Some will opt to carefully cut the paper (not the wall!) and use vinegar and warm water to loosen it up.
Try to do this in multiple passes. As long as you have something to temper the adhesive’s binding ability, all you need afterward is some elbow grease and something to scrub with.
