Brico answer: precut strips of carpet of 20 cm

There are solutions to remove wall carpeting but they are not necessarily quick. The best is to proceed by strips of carpet of 20 cm that you will cut on the wall. Once your carpet strips are pre-cut, tear them off by hand. Then use a universal stripper if necessary to remove the thin layer of foam remaining from the carpet. To remove this remaining material you can also use a small spatula. Cleaning with water will undoubtedly get rid of the residue. When your wall is dry and finally clean, sand it using a sander fitted with fine-grained paper to smooth it. If it is in good condition and does not require a smoothing coating, you can undercoat it, paint it or apply a new coating. You too, send us your decoration question
