How to Remove Wallpaper

Peak Pro’s process to professionally remove wallpaper

Removing wallpaper can be a tedious task, but sometimes it must be done! Here’s is Peak Pro’s process to professionally remove wallpaper:
  • Start on one corner of the wallpaper and peel it off like you would a sticker. This is the most basic technique, and often leaves behind a layer of backing. If there is residual backing left after the initial peel, use a scraper to remove it.
  • For older wallpaper, you’ll need a spray bottle of warm water and wallpaper removing solution. Spray the solution and the water onto and behind the wallpaper, attempt to peel it, and remove the leftover backing with a scraper.
