Wallpaper Removal: Hidden Factors

Sometimes it is installed to ‘hide’ defects in a wall surface, that isn’t noticeable prior to removal. Often times multiple layers of wall paper are installed, with out proper prep between layers. Further complicating the process is the damage that can occur when you attempt to remove wallpaper. Sometimes this damage is avoidable, other times its not. Sometimes wallpaper comes off sometimes it doesn’t. This is why any contractor that gives you a written bid, with a set price, to remove wallpaper, you should be suspect of. No one knows how the wallpaper will come off just by looking at it. Further 3 walls in a room may come off beautifully, yet the 4th wall wont come off at all.

The other factors, is damage hidden by wallpaper which can include, but not limited too, cracks, holes, bumps and bulges. All these can, and have been effectively ‘hidden’ by wallpaper. You just dont know, until you remove it. Once removed, these ‘hidden factors’ need to be addressed prior to painting.
