Wallpaper Removal for Commercial Buildings and Offices
Advantages of Wallpaper and Vinyl Wallcoverings
For many years, wallpaper and vinyl wall coverings have been popular in residential homes as well as commercial buildings. There are many advantages to wallpaper and vinyl wallcoverings including a wide variety of styles available, overall durability, washable nature, as well as their ability to hide imperfections in the sheetrock. While all of these are great benefits, there are also a handful of disadvantages to wall coverings.
Disadvantages of Wallpaper and Vinyl Wallcoverings
The biggest downside for most homeowners and businesses is the wallcovering style becomes obsolete in 5-10 years after installation. Additionally, wallpaper can be hard to maintain as the edges and seams notoriously come loose and peel. Wallpaper is tricky long-term as well since wallpaper can be very difficult and messy to remove.
At Major Painting, we believe the largest disadvantage of wallpaper and vinyl wall coverings is something many aren’t aware of - mold and mildew - which can often be found behind the wall covering. Mold and mildew frequently reside behind wall coverings due to moisture intrusion between the wallcovering and sheetrock and having no way to escape. The wallcovering does not usually reveal these mold or mildew areas in an obvious manner due to the stain blocking and durability of the wall covering.

After removing thousands of square feet of wallpaper and vinyl wallcoverings over the last decade, Major Painting has come to realize the largest benefit to wallpaper removal is the improved air quality due moisture no longer being trapped behind wallcoverings!
