How To Use A Wallpaper Stripper

Wallpaper Stripper for hire, save time and energy when doing home DIY.

The machine produces steam like a kettle, which goes through a hose to an attachment similar to an iron. The steam breaks down the glue on the wallpaper which is then easily scraped away.

Before you start

  • Cover any electrical outlets and plugs to prevent moisture getting into them
  • Protect the floor area with a non-slip floor covering
  • Open windows and doors to ensure good ventilation
  • Score or perforate existing wallpaper to allow the steam to dissolve the glue easier.

Using the wallpaper stripper

  1. Fill the steamer with water
  2. Plug into a power supply
  3. The water will heat and the steam will flow to the plate
  4. Hold the plate against the wallpaper for about 30 seconds
  5. When the wallpaper begins to soften, it can be scrapped away
  6. Be careful when removing the wallpaper as the steam will heat the paper and glue and it could cause burns to the skin.
  7. Steam and scrape until the all the wallpaper has been removed
  8. The wallpaper stripper we stock will run for up to an hour and a half before switching off automatically when a low water level is reached.
  9. When the water runs low and the machine switches off, wait about 2 minutes to allow the steamer to cool before refilling with water.
