The Secret to My (Wallpaper) Success
by Jana K. - Marketing & CSR at Jiffy Steamer Company
Sooo...let's start out by saying that moving & remodeling is daunting. VERY daunting. Once my hubby and I got all of our furniture into our new (older) sweet little 1978ish brick ranch style house, it was time to do something with the blue and yellow flower-power bathroom. I really can't explain this wallpaper. It was unlike any other. Maybe the person who put it up didn't have great eye sight? I'm not sure but it was nightmare worthy. The only person who really liked it was my six year old. Since pieces were hanging off anyway, I decided to peel very very slowly to see if I might get lucky enough for it to come off smoothly. Boy, was I wrong. I tore the sheet rock! Husband = Not Happy.
I ran back to our old house to get my J-2000 Jiffy Steamer. I knew that the steamer would work on wallpaper but since this was my first remodeling experience, I'd never personally used it for that application. So I brought it in, plugged it up and gave it about 1 to 2 minutes for the steam to start rolling out. Let me just say that patience is a virtue with removing wallpaper but my J-2000 helped me keep my sanity. I held the steamhead up to a spot for a few seconds and then started peeling to see if it would come off. SUCCESS! It came off smooth as butter (or butta in southern slang). The day went pretty smooth after my J-2000 came to help me. The transformation is not complete but I have provided you with a lovely before photo. Wish me luck!
