Yes, that’s right. Your trusty steam mop is the perfect tool for removing wallpaper. Don’t worry if you didn’t know this fact. It isn’t exactly common knowledge. In fact, there isn’t even that many steam mop reviews that extol this particular fact. Today, that is going to be my job.

However, I am not just here to give praise to the steam mop for turning a task of undeniable drudgery into something that quick and easy. I am also going to show you just exactly how to do it. So if you want to know how to remove wallpaper from your walls using your trusty steam mop, then please continue reading.


Since removing wallpaper requires a lot of reaching and stretching—unless you have extremely short walls that is—then you are going to need the best steam mop for the job. You won’t want to use one of the bigger steam mops for removing wallpaper and that’s for sure. So make sure that you use one with a lighter weight, such as a pocket mop.

Once you have acquired the correct steam mop, then be sure to fill it with water and then place it on the scrub setting. It’s as simple as that. You are now ready to begin removing your wallpaper.

Removing Wallpaper

Make sure that while you are removing wallpaper, you divide your wall into small sections to be worked on. This is because it is not only easier to do it in this fashion, but also because the moisture and the heat will still be fresh when you peel the paper. Apply steam to a small section, and then strip the wallpaper off. Continue until the entire wall has been done.

Clean Up

The best part about using your steam mop for removing wallpaper is that it can not only be used for peeling the paper, but it can also be used to clean up the mess. Just fire up your steam mop and you can clean residual glue off your wall effortlessly. You’ll still have to dispose of the discarded wallpaper by hand, but that is the easy part.

Congratulations! You have just used your steam mop in an innovative way and you have turned one of the hardest jobs in the world into something that is almost a pleasure to do.
