Removing stubborn wallpaper from a wall

Postby Karina_anastasia » Wed Feb 17, 2021 1:35 pm

Having successfully steamed wallpaper off two walls of the room, I’m left with a particularly stubborn section. It looks like the wallpaper was painted over (easily scraped off). But the wallpaper underneath comes off only in cm pieces. I think it was put on with no backing paper. Any ideas on how to get rid?

Hi karina_anastasia
You will have to pierce the surface - there are spiked rollers available to make this easier - and then use a steamer.
