Wallpaper coverings change the feeling of a room instantly, without the fumes or drying time involved with home painting. But, as children age or a room changes purposes, wallpaper removal becomes necessary. This task requires more than simply tearing the wallpaper off. In fact, ripping wallpaper down can cause damages to the underlying surface. Trust New View Painting in Poughkeepsie, NY to carefully handle wallpaper removal in your home.
Fresh wallpaper can turn a room from boring to beautiful. Before attempting wallpaper removal on your own, let me figure out the best approach. Customers need to know the type of wall covering they have up, along with the condition of the wall surface underneath the paper. I make sure the wallpaper does not leave significant damages once removed.
In most cases, wallpaper removal is straightforward and simple with the right tools and techniques. This is usually when drywall or plaster are used underneath. The type of wall surface underneath will determine the method of removal. At New View Painting, we employ a variety of techniques, including the following:
• Dry-Stripping—For drywall surfaces, dry-stripping is the easiest way to perform wallpaper removal. This involves simply loosening strips of wallpaper with a putty knife before slowly peeling them off, followed by adhesive removal. I work to avoid damaging the drywall with this process.
• Soaking—If wallpaper cannot be removed by stripping, the next process involves using a wallpaper removal solution. The surface of the wallpaper is soaked in the solvent usually with a spray bottle or roller. The dissolved wallpaper is then scraped off.
• Steaming—I use this process for wall surfaces that are most likely to be damaged with wallpaper removal. A wallpaper steamer is used to soften the wallpaper so that it can be easily scrapped away.
Property owners in Poughkeepsie, NY should leave wallpaper removal to the professionals. At New View Painting, I have the experience and skill to select the correct removal technique.
Count on me to keep damages to wall surfaces at a minimum.
