Removing wallpaper with steamer: without a doubt, the breakthrough! It saves a lot of time. But read on to find out all the details....
How to remove wallpaper
Removing wallpaper is tedious and time-consuming, mainly if it has been laid for a long time. Here the steamer comes to the rescue. The steam can remove even the thinnest residue without damaging the walls.
Prepare the work area
The steam dissolves the glue. So even though it is a 100% natural way to remove wallpaper, the remnants will soften and may liquefy, and it is best to cover the floor well to avoid having to clean everything up afterward. It is also helpful to have a container to throw away the remnants.
Remember to cover electrical outlets with electrical tape to prevent liquids from getting into them.
Punch holes in the paper with a spiked roller, especially if it is vinyl or multi-layered. This way, water vapor will penetrate more quickly, and the glue will dissolve soon. Don't press too hard to avoid ruining the wall.
How to remove wallpaper: let's switch to steamer
Make sure no limescale is present, and fill the tank with hot water to cut the time in half. Then, place the tank on a flat, stable surface.
Place the steam plate for up to 25 seconds on the same spot. The heat will melt the glue, and removing the paper will be a breeze. If there are more persistent areas, repeat the operation.
In addition to the classic steamer, a wallpaper remover is on the market, which also works with steam. You hold the plate for 30 seconds on one spot, the steam melts the glue, and you can then remove the wallpaper with a squeegee.
If you work in an upside-down position, you must be careful about escaping hot water droplets. It is best to wear long-sleeved clothing, gloves, and goggles, and do not stand under the plate.
