How do you remove wallpaper?

Is it hard to do? Can one person do it alone?

The key to removing wallpaper is heat and moisture. Yes, you can do it alone. If the paper is shiny they scratch through the top layer, make a cross pattern as you go. Then fire up the steamer and place is against the paper, move it around until the paper gets loose, the scrape off with a wide putty knife.

Score the wallpaper with a scoring tool, then use a commercial wallpaper removing solution to wet the paper. Then, pull off the paper. If small bits remain, sand them off.

I always preferred to do this on my own- peel off as much as you can by hand, score the paper with a razor cutter, use a putty knife or wallpaper scraper- be careful of the wall underneath. You can loosen paper with a vinegar solution, or rent a steamer.
