How to remove wallpaper
Wallwik's patented HydroSheet technology allows wallpaper to be removed more easily and quickly than ever before.
When soaked in the SimpleStrip Power Solution, the HydroSheets cling to the wallpaper, keeping it moist. The Solution can then penetrate the scored surface and dissolve the old adhesive. You then simply peel the paper from the wall, often in entire strips.
Three simple steps to bare walls
Scoring the wallpaper is a process that involves creating small punctures in the wallpaper to allow the wallpaper removal solution to penetrate and soften the adhesive underneath.
Use the wallpaper scorer to create small punctures in the wallpaper. You can do this by running the scorer over the wallpaper in a circular or straight pattern.
Be careful not to press too hard or you could damage the wall underneath.
The perforations created by the scorer will allow the solution to penetrate through the wallpaper and loosen the adhesive, making it easier to remove the wallpaper.
Using SimpleStrip Hydrosheets is quick and easy!
Fill a bucket or container with warm water and add the SimpleStrip Power Solution to it. Immerse the Hydrosheets in the solution and let them soak for a few minutes.
Once the Hydrosheets are fully saturated, remove them from the solution and wring them out to remove excess water.
Apply the Hydrosheets to the wallpapered walls, making sure they are evenly distributed and in full contact with the wallpaper.
Spray the sheets to keep the moist and wait for the adhesive to dissolve. This usually takes around 15-30 minutes, depending on the type and age of the wallpaper.
Once the wallpaper can be peeled from the wall, remove the HydroSheets and place them back into your bucket, ready to be used again. Take the Skimmer tool to skim the wallpaper off the wall. Most wallpapers can be peeled off and removed in large pieces or whole sheets.
