How to Wash Walls After Wallpaper Removal

Taking down wallpaper is often a dreaded project. Once you have accomplished the difficult part of removing wallpaper, you must properly clean the walls. After wallpaper is removed, residue is left from the glue and the solution you used to remove the wallpaper. It is important to wash walls so paint or new wallpaper will properly adhere.

Skill level:Easy

Things you need

BucketWater1 cup household ammoniaTowels

Instructions

1 Fill a bucket with 1 gallon of warm water. Add 1 cup household ammonia.

2 Dip a flat sponge mop into the cleaning solution. Wring out the mop well so that it is not dripping wet.

3 Start cleaning walls from the top and work your way down. Stand about two feet from the wall and scrub with the mop. Work in three-foot-wide sections and scrub from the top to the baseboards.

4 Dry each section promptly after washing it. Wring out the mop very well and place a dry towel over the mop head. Run the mop over each section to dry it.

5 Continue scrubbing and drying, working in three foot sections, until the entire wall has been cleaned. Rinse and wring out the mop often.

Tips and warnings

If the mop becomes uncomfortable to scrub the lower parts of the walls, use a sponge or rag and the cleaning solution.

Change the bucket of cleaning solution as it becomes dirty.

Work in a well-ventilated area when using ammonia. Wear rubber gloves and protective eyewear when cleaning with ammonia.
