Wallpaper Removal: Benefits of Hiring a Professional

While there are many tools you can purchase to assist you in removing your unwanted wallpaper, removal is often more challenging — and difficult — than it may initially appear. When you’re ready to remove your unwanted wallpaper, considering hiring a professional to experience the following benefits:

Save Time and Energy

Rarely does wallpaper peel away in large poster size sheets. Removing the paper is often  time-consuming because it doesn’t easily come away from the wall. 

Furthermore, over time, wallpaper adhesive bonds become stronger, which makes removal even more difficult. 


Wallpaper Removal Experts

With over 25 years of industry experience, we’ve developed tried-and-true techniques to efficiently remove any type of wallpaper. 

We use highly effective solvents and tools to quickly and efficiently remove wallpaper.  These techniques minimize  damage to your walls.

Protecting Your Property

With each project, we treat the space as if it is our own home.  So, we take great care to protect or move your personal property to protect it from damage. 

An ounce of prevention.

Because of the many steps when removing wallpaper and painting, it makes sense to remove items when possible.   

Wallpaper Removal Verse Painting over it

Wallpaper takes the right tools, equipment, and solvent, but also incredible patience. You’ve probably seen homes or other rooms where an impatient homeowner decided to just paint over the wallpaper versus stripping it away. While some sites may pose convincing arguments for why it’s better for your mental health just to cut corners and paint over that papery eye-sore, you should always attempt to remove the unwanted wallpaper, because you’ll experience better results and fewer problems overall.

Reasons to remove your old wallpaper include:

  • Wallpaper is applied in rows, and when this material is painted over, the seams where the paper was lined up will often show through the paint application.
  • Most wallpaper designs are textured. When you paint over it, you’ll find you’ve enhanced an unwanted and unattractive texture.
  • The moisture in the paint can loosen the wallpaper’s adhesive over time, which will lead to a bubbling appearance or cause the paper to peel away, taking the paint along with it.
  • Mold can easily grow behind wallpaper. Recently, I was at a hotel at a beach resort that was being remodeled.  Behind the dated wallpaper was mold on most of the walls.  It is our best practice not to paint over wallpaper in rooms with high moisture content.   


 Our professional experience plays a major role in knowing which route to go with your interior painting project. This would save you money and time in the end.

I needed three rooms painted. I couldn’t be happier with the personal response from their front office and the professional and experienced job done by the painters.

Daniel is always my first call for painting and handyman services. He is professional, prompt, and he provides me with a detailed and itemized estimate. I tend to be quite nit-picky with the end product and if ever something is not perfect, Daniel fixes it to my liking.

Every day Arturo's team was on time. I was very impressed with the final paint job and the work ethic of the crew. I feel they went above my expectations and would hire again. All crew adhered strictly to COVID guidelines and wore masks the entire time. I truly enjoyed working with Arturo.
