Title of Question:

Wallpaper Removal Problem


Name: Carolyn  City: Chester

Question: I have been trying to remove wallpaper, the front comes off but the backing remained. I have tried hot water, 2 kinds of chemical wallpaper stripper & a wallpaper steamer but the glue is still holding & it is causing the sheetrock to come off. Is there something else I can do to remove the backing. I would like to paint the walls. Thanks
