B&K Painting your Wallpaper Removal Experts
WALLPAPER REMOVAL IS MESSY, TIME-CONSUMING, AND IRRITATING! That’s why you want to do it right… the FIRST TIME!!
First, KNOW that this is going to be a messy job. There is no way around that. Bits and pieces of wet paper, covered in adhesive, will end up stuck to everything that’s not covered. Fortunately, it cleans up easily with some soap and water.
Wallpaper removal is a task no one enjoys. It’s messy, sticky and time consuming. Some people try to avoid this tedious task by painting or repapering over wallpaper, but this is never recommended and will become a headache for whoever attempts this task in the future.

Tip: Knowing what you’re up against
In most cases, walls are either drywall (gypsum sandwiched between layers of paper) or plaster smoothed over lath (either strips of wood or metal mesh). You can usually tell what you have by the feel (plaster is harder, colder, and smoother than drywall) or by tapping on it (drywall sounds hollow, and plaster doesn’t). When in doubt, remove an outlet cover to see the exposed edges. Drywall is more vulnerable to water damage; you must avoid overwetting it. And use care when you’re scraping because drywall gouges more easily than plaster.
Wallpaper removal is easy. Well, maybe it’s not really easy, but I have good news for you. Yes, stripping wallpaper is messy and it is time consuming. You would rather do almost anything else. As a professional, my clients have often told me that if not for the wallpaper removal, they would have decorated the room themselves. It is such a deterrent.
While it is a hassle to remove, most people’s real fears center around damaging the wall while stripping the paper. It’s true. You can. I’ve spent as much time repairing that damage. There is no reason that it has to happen, though. Hire a professional and the job will get done in half the time while you are enjoying your day knowing it will get done right.
