Removing and Installing Wallpaper Correctly

While many people try to remove wallpaper themselves, deciding on an experienced, professional wallpaper removal company offers many advantages. We have:

  • Equipment for preparation:Starting out, few people know that removing old wallpaper is a process that uses a huge amount of water. We know how to seal floors to keep hardwood, carpeting and tile safe from the moisture so you don’t have larger repairs to worry about after your fresh wallpaper installation. Our professionals will remove the faceplates from your electrical sockets and place tape-off wires for the sake of safety.
  • Section assessment experience:While it may seem like a good idea to just start scraping at old wallpaper, we know to peel it back and check the original installation to determine best removal practices. Finding out whether the wall was primed and prepped before the first wallpaper installation helps us decide how to handle the paper and adhesive without any damage to the underlying structure.
  • Section-by-section removal expertise: Wallpaper removal takes time. We soak each glued area and wait for the section to soften, scrubbing every tiny piece of glue off with a Brillo pad. If this step is neglected even in small sections, the wallpaper or paint you apply next can get bubbles.
  • New wallpaper: We complete this final step just as well as the rest no matter what original condition your home is in. We’ll help you decide on a wallpaper/paint combination if you want to work with both and we’ll paint your walls and apply your choice wallpaper without bubbles, inconsistencies or other issues.

Words from our Clients

" We had McCarthy Painting remove the acoustic & paint the interior of our new home. He was very patient with us, considering the start date needed to be moved back on 2 occasions. The work was great, the team showed up every morning & let my wife & I know exactly what they planned to do. Brendan & George were helpful with suggestions & the work was great. I am going to recommend McCarthy painting to my friends & will use them again when we paint again! "
