There are several ways to remove wallpaper from the walls. This depends purely on the surface, the type of wall and the type of wallpaper. We recommend that you place all furniture as far away from the wall as possible when removing the wallpaper. Removing wallpaper can be a messy job!
For a small wall, the use of softener is ideal. In most cases you apply the softener to the wallpaper with a large block brush. Soak for a few minutes. Then you can use a putty knife to loosen the wallpaper.
Exactly how to use a macrophage depends on the brand. Therefore, please read the manual on the packaging at all times.
Vinyl wallpaper actually always exists on two layers. The wallpaper therefore releases in two separate layers. The top layer of wallpaper can be removed from the wall with your hands. In the second layer you can use a softener. Remaining remnants of the first layer can be removed immediately with the second layer.
In principle, you do not need any supplies to remove fleece wallpaper. The wallpaper is very easy to remove by itself. You can therefore simply pull non-woven wallpaper off the wall with your hands.
The hardest wallpaper to remove is with punctual on one fibreglass wallpaper. In most cases, the wallpaper is finished with latex. The latex makes it very difficult to soften and loosen the wallpaper.
To remove fibreglass wallpaper, it is good to first sand the entire wallpaper. During sanding you remove the latex layer from the walls. You can then use a softener. Although it is not fully successful with fiberglass wallpaper softener. The removal of fiberglass wallpaper will take a lot of time and strength. Should the wallpaper overpaint an option?

You have no idea what kind of wallpaper is on the wall, but do you see it’s very thin? For light wallpaper, we definitely recommend the use of softener. But with a small note!
Use a knife to make small openings. We always use crosses ourselves, that will come in handy later.
Then apply a mixture of softener and water. It is important not to apply a pure softener to thin wallpaper. This is far too intense for thin, light wallpaper.
