Wallpaper can be beautiful, just not to everyone. If you are going to remove your wallpaper, here are some questions you might need to ask yourself.
Do I know how many layers of wallpaper I have?
If you have multiple layers of wallpaper, it is going to be very time consuming trying to get layers and layers of wallpaper off. There are other ways of doing this.
Do I know if the walls were primed before the wallpaper was put on?
If the walls were not primed before the wallpaper was put on, you have a much higher probability of the wallpaper sticking to the walls and tearing portions of the drywall/sheetrock off when you try to remove it.
Do I know what my drywall/sheetrock looks like underneath?
Many times, people will cover up damages with wallpaper so that they do not have to fix drywall/sheetrock.
If you have already taken off your wallpaper and you could not get all of it off or you damaged the drywall/Sheetrock while in the process, there is no need to fear, Tracy Drywall is here. We can come out and give you an estimate on what it would cost for us to seal on the remaining wallpaper, repair and smooth out your walls so that they will be ready to be textured or painted. You can reach us by phone, email or live chat with us.
If you are determined to take it off yourself, there are many different ways that you can try to take it off, you can try fabric softener in warm water, a steamer, or a wallpaper scratcher (we do not recommend this one). Just remember, the more damage that you do to your drywall/Sheetrock, the more costly it is going to be for us to repair it for you.
