HOW TO REMOVE WALLPAPER. Home improvement wallpaper removal.



this is currency Idaho Manor in this video I'm going to show you how to go about removing a wallpaper border we got this wallpaper border right here and we're going to be removing it and we're gonna try two simple easy methods to try to get rid of it in the first method we're going to try is just using a spray bottle with warm water we're gonna spray on there and hopefully it's gonna release and come right out if that doesn't take it off then we're gonna just jump over to our steam there are water steamer and steam that up it's really simple and easy to do hopefully if somebody hasn't applied it properly and we're gonna show you the steps to removing it right now so stay tuned so when attempting to work on small hole paper projects like this like removing this a simple little border we always try to start off with something simple and we use this simple little spray bottle right here we fill this thing up with warm water don't put any chemicals we don't put anything in it just warm water and we'll spray it with a light mist over that paper and quite a few times it'll actually remove it just by spraying that warm water on the paper and so we're gonna give that a try because it's just quick and simple and if that process doesn't work then we actually break out the Werner steamer which just takes a little more work and effort and then begin using the steamer and we don't like using any chemicals we don't use any paper tigers those things that score the paper anything cuz all it does is just damage the wall and poke holes in the wall behind it we just use plain old water and a wall paper steamer or plain old water and a sprayer and that's the tried-and-true process that we've been using for years and years removing wallpaper it's always worked for us so here we go we're gonna try to pull this this border off so in some of the tools that you're gonna be using to remove this wallpaper are just some simple tools they've got a handheld sprayer out here just purchase it from my whoa paint store I've got a sponge right here to do the cleaning with the glue residue at the end got a five-gallon bucket just put my warm water in and a spackle knife right here and this is just a simple 3-inch spackle knife start removing the face of the paper that's kinda like the fighting off face of it and it's kind of waterproof and it gives you the Bakke right here and then a vacuum and you are going to soak up the water and warm water and start coming off this wallpaper glue is water days so just spray some on there and just let it set for differ a little bit and work down the line I'm gonna let that set and I'll come back just about five minutes or just go on spraying this wallpaper with my warm water just be using a couple of putty knives remove the paper so just see it's actually just peeling right off don't even need to use the steamer at all stop that giving us all scraped off I'm just using a sponge with warm water to just residue on the wall it's just a water-based adhesive just gonna clean that off really well keep dipping my sponge in warm water to rinse it out it's also good I didn't have some nice clean dry rags don't you get any down water on anything that you don't want water on just wipe it off with a wet or dry rag as quick as you can just move right along here just keeping my wallpaper back you're at or off the face and that this is the backing I'm just keeping it wet to keep removing it it just comes right off very easily you don't want to scrape so hard that you gallant your walls cuz then you have to repair the walls just being very carefully come off easily it is pretty messy a lot of this wallpaper fall on the ground the carcass being removed in this house I'm not worried about the carpet but if you're not removing the carpet or your flooring we're not replacing the floor you definitely want to throw down some zomboss where all this stuff to fall onto your drop cloth I'm just working right now if I find I've got a bucket and my sponge cleaning it right after I remove it these walls will be dry probably about a half hour or so after we remove this and they're going to be repainting the walls and you clean this residue off good enough you don't need to prime your walls so if we work on this wallpaper removal this border removal been doing it in this kitchen right here this dining room now it took me about 30 minutes and 45 minutes to remove the wallpaper and then clean the walls let it dry for about an hour and then we painted the walls rolling our first coat on the first coat dried in about 30 minutes then we were born our second coat on see there was a border right across here and you can see that it's not even you can't even see it anymore so as a simple project got it all done and even the painting done in one day I didn't get to use in the Werner electric wallpapers steamer if you want to see a video on how to use the steamer and remove wallpaper you can check out my video

    What do you do when the paper was applied directly to the dry wall with minimal skim coat?

    I love your videos! My husband and I are about to repaint our newly purchased fixer upper built in 1973. It has popcorn ceiling ? and I don't want to remove it now, so my question is how do you safely remove wallpaper/borders without damaging the popcorn ceiling texture? I want to try the warm water sprayer method first. Thanks again!

    I have the worse case of wall paper removal. I tried everything and still damaged the wall badly. I guess I'll have to skim coat it now. God help me.

    Why do men often argue with me on Epic dating app that the big bang theory is false?

    With old paper that wasn't properly sized sometimes the drywall gets dinged up no matter what. In cases like that I use one of those 3 inch stiff red devils and get what I can. Then I do a very heavy coat of guards and pole sand it with a 360 pad with 100 grit. After that I roll on on mud with a 3/4 inch nap and feather it out with a 16" pool trowel. porter cable sand and prime. Sounds like a lot of work, but if the paper is very problematic this is the best way I've found.

    Great video as always. I did not realize you pulled the vinyl part down first, that would make a big difference.

    What is your opinion on using an oil based primer after wallpaper is removed and prior to painting with latex paint?? I plan on removing wallpaper down a hallway and two walls of my dining room. Thanks for all you do.

    I have found it a good idea to wipe the drips off the entire wall. Sometimes, the drips telegraph through the paint as they contain wallpaper paste.
