I have moved into a new home which has woodchip on all walls in all rooms (less bathroom and kitchen).
I have since learned that the woodchip is old and has many coats of paint on it, but worst of all, it was applied directly to plasterboard not plastered walls.
I am concerned that steaming or soaking (even scoring) the woodchip will damage the paper-covering which plasterboard comes with when purchased (not sure what it is called).
How can I remove the woodchip without damaging the plasterboard?
I do not wish to wallpaper when finished, just end up with smooth, painted walls.
