Removing wallpaper like a pro!!! The Dan Brady "Tricks of The Trade" Way!!!!
"Wallpaper is meant to come down like it went up in FULL SHEETS, not in 1000 small pieces"
STEPS TO WALLPAPER REMOVAL
step 1 - score wall with paper tiger
step 2- saturate wall with wallpaper removal solution, a pump up garden sprayer makes this step a lot easier
Step 3- let the walls soak for at least 10 minutes, mist walls if necessary just don't let solution dry out
Step 4- grab lower corner of paper and start to remove, if it doesn't remove in a full sheet STOP repeat Step 2
Step 5- if any paper backing remains after removing face paper repeat steps 2 and step 3, a wall scraper is helpful to remove any excess paper and glue, take care not to gouge wall as you use scraper or you will leave yourself with a lot of drywall repair
Step 6- after all wallpaper is removed scrub down walls with green scrubby and wallpaper removal solution, this will remove excess paste
Step 7- soak clean rags in fresh water and wipe down walls
Step 8- prime walls with a GOOD sealing primer like Smart Prime from Zinsser, this will help seal up any remaining glue and prepare your surface for paint.
Step 9- repair any drywall damage, spot prime repairs and apply two coats of paint
Step 10- step back, crack a beer, admire your master piece
