I am moving into a home soon and I have found out that the wallpaper (that I would like to remove except for there are 5 large rooms to remove it from) is almost 40 years old. What is an easy way to remove it...or is it a good/bad idea to paint over it? I need any suggestions possible!!!

If the paper has not been painted over and you have plaster walls it should be fairly easy to remove it. I have had good luck with DIF wallpaper remover or you could rent a steamer as they work well also.
If it has been painted over and is tight on the wall I woul dleave it alone.
