No two wallpaper removals ever go the same way. It’s not until about halfway through a removal that this can truly be determined. Some look easy, and turn out to be bearish, while others may look challenging, and turn out be no problem at all.
There are a number of factors that determines the difficulty of wallpaper removal, such as:
-How well the surface was “prepared” (or even “if” the wall was properly prepared prior to wallpapering).
-The “type” of wallpaper used (i.e., paper, vinyl, foil, etc…). In my experience, vinyl tends to be the easiest to remove, while paper wallpaper generally proves most tedious and stubborn.
-The “age” of the wallpaper can also be a factor in determining how easy it is to remove. Sometimes the adhesive becomes brittle and almost falls of the wall, while other times the paper itself becomes brittle, and pulls off in itsy-bity, tiny pieces… one at a time.
