You may have wallpaper that is faded, peeling, old, cracking or just want a new look. Removing wallpaper and applying a fresh coat of paint can make an old dark room look new again! Even though it’s a tedious and messy job, wallpaper removal can be a DIY project if you know the right procedure to follow.
On the other hand, if you don’t have the know how and most of all, the patience to remove wallpaper, you might ruin your walls and have to deal with expensive repairs. This is when you need the assistance of a Michigan company that does wallpaper removal.
At Imperial Painting, we have experience with removing wallpaper since 1992. Wallpaper removal, like other home improvement jobs, can require more effort than initially thought and it is important that the proper steps are taken to ensure you will not have problems with your newly painted walls.
Our trained professionals can provide this service, without any problems. Large items are moved to the center of the room and covered with fresh plastic. All floors and runways are covered with drop cloths to ensure that your flooring is protected as well as your furnishings.
Our trained professionals wet the surface of each wall with a mixture of hot water and an enzyme based wallpaper remover. The enzyme breaks down the starch in the adhesive, and allows the old paper to be removed. Once the wallpaper is off our trained professionals wash down the walls to remove paste. Walls are scraped, loose paint and/or drywall is removed and patched. Surface defects such as gouges, cracks, nail pops, and any kind surface imperfections are addressed accordingly.
Prior to painting a previously wallpapered surface, our trained professionals will apply a coat of oil base sealer to seal any paste residue left behind after the walls were washed. This is to provide a proper substrate for the painting of these previously wallpapered surfaces. It eliminates any problems during and after the painting process.
Our wallpaper removal services in Michigan are available for your full house or for just one room, no matter if your home is new or old.
