Anyway to reduce plaster coming off when removing wallpaper

Postby bluenun » Sun Feb 03, 2008 7:25 pm

I bought a wallpaper remover and am really pleased with it but it is blowing some of the plaster off the wall too.

I was going to remove the wallpaper from all 4 walls in the hallway but stopped after only removing paper from 1 wall because some plaster was coming off too.

It is not like I can turn the heat down or anything because it is either steaming or not and I only left the plate on the paper for a couple of seconds which is enough for the paper to come off easily with a scraper.

The property was built in 1984.

Any tips would be appreciated.
