I would like to remove some damaged embossed wallcovering that has been on lower half of my hall walls for approx 35 years. Does anyone have any suggestions on how, or if I can remove the wallcovering.

Thanks in advance

If the walls were painted and or sized before the wallcovering was installed it should not be a problem removing it. If the wallcovering is vinyl coated you will to go over it with a paper tiger to punch holes it and then use DIF to soften up the adhesive and be sure to apply it at least twice before you start to try and remove the wallcovering. If the walls are drywall and you end up tearing up some spots you will need to skim them out with drywall mud.

5slb6, thank you for your response to my question, it was very helpful. I am sure that the wallcovering is covered in vinyl, or it appears so. The walls a very shiney.

Thanks again,

Wade
