Q. What should I do if I start to peel off old wallpaper and it takes some of the plaster surfaces as well?
A. Old plaster can become very weak and when you strip off wallpaper it sometimes takes the plaster with it. It's important to use a purpose formulated wallpaper stripping solution such as Poly Wallpaper Remover and not regular liquid soap. This will help to ease the paper off and reduce the chances of damaging the plaster surface.
For plaster that has been slightly damaged, use Polyfilla Interior Small Cracks. If the damage is deep, use Polyfilla Interior Large Cracks.
Q. How do I remove vinyl wallpaper?
A. Initially peel vinyl overlay off the backing paper. Use Poly Wallpaper Remover to soften backing paper then peel off or remove with a paint scraper.
