Wall Paper Removal Services
Modern wallpaper can add flair to a home, but old and stained wallpaper has the opposite effect and makes a home look dated and in dire need of improvement.

About Paint One's wallpaper removal services
Removing wallpaper can be a complicated process. If done incorrectly, it could lead to having to replace the drywall that was wallpapered. To avoid a disaster, the best approach is to hire a company like Paint One to do the work. The process of removing wallpaper not only involves removing the wallpaper itself but also prepping the wall that was wallpapered so it can be painted – that involves removing leftover glue and sanding to smooth the surface and have it ready for painting. Depending on the quality of your wallpaper, the process and adhesive used to install it and the condition of the wall beneath the wallpaper, the removal could be easy or overwhelming.
Make no mistake – removing wallpaper and prepping the drywall beneath to get it ready for painting is a big job, and if you do it wrong, it could be costly. It’s a home improvement project that’s better left for the pros like the professionals at Paint One if you live in the Charleston area.
Wallpaper removal techniques
There are several techniques that can be used to remove wallpaper. Depending on your wallpaper, one technique will yield better results than another, so choosing the right approach to removing your wallpaper is important. When we visit your home to provide you with an estimate, we will be able to determine what technique would be the best approach given the type of wallpaper you have and condition of the walls.
Once the wallpaper is removed, the surface underneath the wallpaper will be prepped and painted to match other walls in your home. Our painters are experts at removing wallpaper and they will restore your walls for seamless, beautiful looking results. Once we are done with your wallpaper removal project, nobody will be able to tell that your walls were previously covered with wallpaper.
Wallpaper removal process
As part of our wallpaper removal process, we remove light switches and electrical covers that might conceal wallpaper material. Paint One will determine the best technique(s) to remove your wallpaper. For example, if the wall surface behind the wallpaper was not sealed properly with a primer before the wallpaper was applied, removing the wallpaper using the wrong technique will cause damage to the wall and additional costs/time.
Once all the wallpaper is removed, Paint One will dispose of the debris in a clean and organized manner. The walls that were wallpapered may require patching and sanding prior to being primed for the final color finish.
