What is the Age of the Paper?
It’s quite straightforward. The more difficult it is to remove old wallpaper, the more difficult it is to do it. Wallpaper glue creates a strong bond with the wall that only gets stronger with time. Older wallpaper was sometimes applied without any priming or wall preparation, making removal extremely difficult. It’s also possible that a previous paint job has a layer of wallpaper behind it. This further complicates the situation.

Removing wallpaper frequently necessitates moistening the wallpaper, which necessitates the use of the correct type and amount of solvent in order to avoid wall damage. Only professionals know what type of solvent to use and how much to use. Don’t put your walls in jeopardy. Hire a JMC professional to have the job done correctly.
