North Port Wallpaper Removal and DisposalWallpaper removal and disposal. Words that easily stir up mixed emotions. Yes, you’re excited to get rid of the eyesore. But, the work ahead is not particularly fun or pleasant. In fact, it’s quite easy to damage the wall itself when removing the aesthetic decor. (Which means you’ll need to make repairs.) Although, tearing off that old wallpaper does give you the opportunity to totally transform the space.

Replacement Options

Before you peel away that old wallpaper, you should know what you’ll use in its place. Of course, the most popular alternative to wallpaper is paint. But, that isn’t the only option. You can also go with a stencil, though it’s very detailed oriented and requires a lot of work. Peel and stick wood paneling is another alternative.

You love your house, but you cringe every time you walk by that bathroom. What were you thinking when you picked out that wallpaper? Relax, wallpaper is not forever. But, before you apply paint or a different wall-covering, you may have a little work to do. Removing old wallpaper is not that difficult.

Keep in mind that whatever you go with, it’s going to take quite a bit of time and effort. So, be prepared for the challenge. Also, it’s easy to cause damage to a wall that’s covered in wallpaper. If this does happen, you’ll need to either patch or replace the drywall or sheetrock. Unfortunately, there are no real shortcuts which make it all the more of a challenge.

North Port Wallpaper Removal

You’ll need to start by removing everything from the walls, which includes any decor, along with switchplates and wall outlet plates. Next, clear out the entire room because practically everything will be covered with dust. Then follow these steps:

  • Turn off the electrical circuit breakers to the outlets in the room. You’ll have to wet the walls substantially to remove the glue, so, shut off all circuit breakers to the wall outlets in the room to avoid any electrical problems.
  • Peel the wallpaper off the wall. Find a seam and gently pull at it. (Or, start in a corner and pull it back, just a bit.) Then, you can carefully pull back some of the wallpaper so you can spray stripping solution onto the wall itself.
  • se a commercial stripping solution to saturate the remaining wallpaper. Follow the manufacturer’s mixing instructions and then apply the commercial stripping solution to any wallpaper that remains stuck to the surface. Give it some time to soak in and loosen the wallpaper before peeling and scraping it off.
  • Scrub with a pad to remove any remnants of adhesive from the wall. Once the wallpaper is peeled away, adhesive remnants will still be present on the surface of the wall. Use a scrub pad to get rid of the glue.
