Savannah GA Wall Paper Removal
There are a number of methods to remove wallpaper. Here are a couple methods used by Nationwide Property Maintenance Painting Services:
- DIF – This is the first method we try as it’s the quickest. We apply it liberally to the wall and let it soak for about 15 minutes. We then try removing the top layer of paper. Wallpaper usually removes in two layers. You have the top layer and the paper backing where the glue is attached. The DIF works great when used with a four-inch taping knife to scrape away the paper backing and glue.
- Steamer – This method is used on some of the harder to remove wallpaper jobs. It works by heating and adding moisture to the glue backing allowing the paper to loosen from the wall.
Often times Nationwide Property Maintenance uses a combination of these two methods are used to remove wallpaper. Whatever works the fastest while keeping the drywall intact is the method we will use.

After the wall paper has been removed we will fix any imperfections in the wall by skim coating with drywall mud. Two coats of drywall mud are applied to make sure you won’t ever see the imperfections due to the mud shrinking. After patching and sanding we will prime with a product that will seal out any glue residue. Now you’re ready for paint! We’re also professional Savannah interior painters.
