We have tested Wallwik against home DIY steamers and high performance professional units. Wallwik was found to be 2 - 3 times quicker than the best high pressure steam stripper on test.
We also found that the intense heat from steamers can crack and damage the drywall or plaster. Wallwik does not use steam, so will NOT damage the drywall!
Steam strippers require a lot of scraping which is very tiring. The scraping can gouge and damage the plaster, which takes time to fill afterwards. Wallwik eliminates most of the scraping and removes the paper in large pieces and whole sheets, making the whole process quicker and easier.
