Sam's How to Tip's
How to hang wallpaper wallcovering
Start papering in a place that is inconspicuous and your starting point will be your ending point. Using a level and a pencil, draw a vertical line from the floor to the ceiling. You will align your paper to this, keep the mark as light as possible.
Cut a length of wallcovering that’s 4 inches longer than the wall. Apply paste to the paper. Or, if using prepasted wallpaper, follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Start at the ceiling, aligning the paper with the plumb line. Roughly 2 extra inches should flop on the ceiling, and 2 more inches flop over the baseboard.
Smooth the paper using a smoothing brush or a plastic smoother. Remove wrinkles by pulling a section of the paper away from the wall until you reach the wrinkle. Smooth out the paper as you lay it back on the wall. Smooth from the middle out.
Trim the paper. Using a wide putty knife, press the paper against the ceiling, baseboard, or corner and trim it with a sharp razor blade. Questions call Sam 804-262-7772

How to strip wallpaper wallcovering
Try only a 2 foot by 2 foot area. Strip the outer face off the wallpaper. This can be a vinyl coating or just a layer of paper. This will leave only the backing material and glue. Prepare a wallpaper stripping solution of water and pine oil cleaner. Wallpaper stripping solution should be sprayed on the backing material and allowed to soak. A garden-type sprayer will speed up the soaking process. Remove the backing material with a wallpaper scraping tool. If this fails, re-wet the backing and allow it to soak longer.
