Wallpaper Steamer for Hire

 Guaranteed in Stock

Perfect for both professional decorators and domestic applications.

Remove old wallpaper quickly and easily with this practical and efficient 240v steam wallpaper stripper. It is very easy to use, and the steam rapidly penetrates and soaks the wallpaper, loosening the adhesive that is holding the paper to the wall. This ensures fast, easy, mess-free removal with a simple scraper, in large sections at a time – making the job far easier than it would be using a simple sponge and warm water. 

The steamer will be able to remove multi-layered papers as well as painted over wallpaper, vinyl, foil, flock and woodchip. It is also very effective at removing non-paper based wall coverings such as hessian fixed with UPVA glues.

User Tips: 

  • If you are tackling thick or painted papers, prepare the wall before using the steam stripper by using a wallpaper perforator across the entire area.
  • Read the user manual carefully before use, and be aware of the location of the power switch in case you need to turn off the machine quickly.
  • Keep the windows open in the room that you are working in to allow good ventilation, and cover furniture, fittings and floors.
  • Never attempt to over reach with the steam plate. 
  • Protect your safety by wearing goggles and protective clothing, and make sure you do not touch the hot plate. During use, hot steam will re-condense and collect in the bottom of the plate - so be careful not to spill this over yourself or any co-workers.

Q - Where do I store the steam plate while it is heating up?

  • You should place the steam plate face up either on the floor or a work surface which should be protected from condensation when the steam it first produced.

Ratings and Reviews

wallpaper stripper   5 / 5  
Did an excellent job at removing wood chip paper from a large room
Bryonie Thomos
Very good steamer   5 / 5  
Hired this professional wallpaper steamer and found it to be much better than the cheap diy ones I've used before. It's got a nice long hose cable making it easy for those hard to reach places and the steam plate is a decent size to giving a steady steam output for long periods without needing a refill. Got old wallpaper off very easily.
