Removing Wallpaper

When your wallpaper is glossy or very heavy, the steam or chemical strippers that you use to release the glue, can't get to the glue very well. The trick is to score the paper before using these things and there are several tools on the market for scoring wallpaper. The one I like most is called a Tiger Paw and you use it in a circular motion. You can see the score marks on the wallpaper in the photo.
