Lowell Wallpaper Removal

 Lowell Wallpaper RemovalThat old wallpaper’s time is through. Now it needs removing so that you can create a fresh design in your space. But isn’t Lowell wallpaper removal every home decorator’s worst nightmare? Not necessarily,  if you let the professionals handle it.

Project Scale

Lowell homeowners have room after room of endless papered walls, making theirs a project that never ends. The scale of the wallpaper you need to remove and the time you will have to spend painting afterwards is one of the main reasons  you should let professional wallpaper removers handle it.


Wallpaper removal can be a time consuming and difficult project to take on. If your walls were not properly primed before the introduction of wallpaper, you may be in for some very nasty surprises when you peel a bit of paper off. Poorly applied papering can take your drywall covering or even parts of your drywall itself off with it, so it is necessary to be careful when undergoing the removal process. You do not want to create a bigger mess of your walls than what you started with! If, somehow, you got very lucky and your walls were originally primed correctly, your job will be much easier, though it will still take lots of time.


Removing wallpaper is a time sink no matter how you go about it. The question is, will it be your personal time or someone else’s? Most removal techniques require first trying to dry strip the walls, which is only occasionally successful if at all, then a process of scoring, wetting, and scraping the walls to finish the process. Depending on the space you’re trying to cover, this is a process that can take from a few hours to a few days, and that’s entirely ignoring the time it will take you to paint the walls to make them look new again.

By hiring a professional for Lowell wallpaper removal and paint the walls afterwards, you save yourself untold personal time and effort.
