Honeybear Painting uses no solvents or chemicals in removing wallpaper. We use professional grade steamers.
1. We start by scoring the wallpaper with a scoring tool. This put tiny tears into the wallpaper. These tears allow the steam to penetrate beneath the wallpaper. This creates separation of the wallpaper from the wallboard.
3. Once wallpaper is removed, we scrape off any residual glue. We then allow it to dry overnight. Any glue still remaining is palm sanded off the next day. Glue must be removed prior to painting.
2. After scoring, we take the steaming pad, and apply steam to small sections for 30-60 seconds at a time. In unison with the steaming, we scrape off the loosened wallpaper.
