Wallpaper Removal Services
Wallpaper removal is a multi-step process. On day 1, the painters at Patch and Paint Pros will setup the room, put drop clothes on the floors and cover all furniture with plastic. Once the room is setup, the wallpaper removal can begin.
Wallpaper Removal Prep
For most properly installed wallpaper, water is all that is needed to remove the wallpaper. The true key to removing wallpaper is patience. It takes time for the water to get absorbed into the wallpaper and loosen up the wallpaper glue.
Removing the Wallpaper
After a couple hours of wetting down the walls, the wallpaper will be scrapped off. Sometimes it comes off in full sheets. Other times, it comes off in tiny pieces. Patch and Paint Pros budgets for the average time to remove wallpaper. Once the wallpaper has been removed, any residual wallpaper glue will be removed prior to priming the walls.
Multiple Layers of Wallpaper
It’s impossible to tell if there are multiple layers of wallpaper before you start removing the first layer. If there are multiple layer of wallpaper, the crew will notify you that the project may take some additional time. To avoid any surprises, a test area can be peeled away to see if how many layers there are to be removed. (behind a faceplate or picture on the wall are good test areas)
Priming after Wallpaper Removal
Once all the wallpaper and glue has been removed, the walls need to be primed with an oil primer to lock in any trace amounts of glue left over. If you do not prime the walls, the old wallpaper glue may mix with the latex paint and leave an uneven finish.

After the wallpaper has been removed, walls primed and patched, it is now time for painting. Patch and Paint Pros will spot prime any repairs prior to applying two coats of a high quality paint from Sherwin-Williams or Benjamin Moore.
