Removing Wallpaper: Why You Should Hire a Professional

Residential, Commercial, Interior, Exterior, Cabinets, Decks and more!

When the time comes to remove that old wallpaper, attempting this feat on your own can be tempting. Whether it is not your style anymore, you are looking for a new look, or it has begun to peel and bubble, removing your wallpaper can be a fresh start for your home. Wallpaper removal is messier and more complex than you may know. Luckily, there are professionals available who can save you time, money, and a headache in the process. 

Here are a few reasons why you should consider hiring a professional for your wallpaper removal.

Wallpaper Removal Is Tedious

At Allegiant Painting, our wallpaper removal process generally takes less than half the time it would take the homeowner. Not only do we have the proper tools, but we also have the expertise and years of experience to make the process faster than you can imagine. 

Wallpaper removal is a very tedious process. Wallpaper usually covers a large area of a room or the entire room. It can take hours for a homeowner to complete a single wall. When you hire a professional company, they are equipped with the proper tools to get the job done. They may also arrive with a team of people who will make the process go by faster. 

DIY Removal Can Damage Your Walls

Although Do-It-Yourself projects can be a fun bonding experience for your family or can seem like the cheaper option, DIY removals come with the risk of damaging your walls. There are tools that professionals use to ensure that the walls are not ruined as the wallpaper comes off. They use water, gels, and steamers that make it easier for the adhesive to be removed. 

While it may cost a little more to hire a professional wallpaper remover, the expertise and tools they possess will be handy in the long run. 

You Don’t Have to Deal With the Mess

Wallpaper removal can quickly become messy. Wallpaper does not always come off in one piece. This leaves the person doing the removal with pieces of sticky wallpaper to get rid of, as well as a messy wall. When removing wallpaper, no one intends to leave the wall bare. After removal, the wall will likely be left with areas that need to be primed and painted before anything further can be done on the wall. 

When hiring a professional, this is another thing that can be removed from your To-do list.
