Wallpapers are not meant to stick on your wall for a lifetime. After years of enjoying its aesthetically pleasing designs, it is time to remove and replace them.
The removal process is unavoidably the hardest thing to do because it can tatter your wall aside from being so time-consuming.
Although ruining the wall’s original paint is hard to prevent, there are ways to minimize it. Here are some of them.
1. Scrape them off.
Using your bare hands or knife, scrape the wallpaper off gently until your wall becomes empty. Just minimize scraping off the wall’s paint along with the wallpaper’s adhesives.
2. Spray the wallpaper with water.
Spraying your bare wall with warm water will make it a lot easier for you to separate the remaining cuts of paper from the wall. Warm water can weaken its adhesives’ strength, and thus, it can speed up the clearing process.
3. Smoothen it.
Once all cuts of paper are gone, you should smooth the wall to avoid flakes and cracks on the original wall paint. Tiny paste specks can negatively affect your next treatment process.
