Review of The Wagner Power Steamer for Removing Wallpaper

So whether you just bought a new house covered in wallpaper and grime, or just want to get your old house sparkling again, an investment in this power steamer is a wise choice.

Wallpaper Steamers and Removal – Wagner 905 Review

I hate to admit it, but I have purchased two homes with wallpaper. You think I would have learned my lesson. So while I wouldn’t consider myself an expert on the wallpaper, I do have some experience.

In my first home, the wallpaper came off fairly easy with hot water and some elbow grease. But in my second home, I wasn’t quite as lucky. Not only was the wallpaper not coming off easily, but then what did come off often brought the paper coating of the drywall with it. Not good.

After calling around some local home improvement centers to inquire on wallpaper steamer rentals, I realized that it was probably cheaper to just buy a wallpaper steamer myself. Buying the Wagner 905 steamer was cheaper than 3 days of a rental. And since I had multiple rooms to strip of wallpaper and wasn’t interested in doing it all in one stretch, buying my own steamer seemed like the wise choice.

After using the Wagner 905 power steamer I can say that I am very happy with it. The steamer is easy to use and makes wallpaper removal MUCH easier. Plus I’m not destroying the walls in the process. And, I can remove wallpaper at my leisure and not worry about getting a steamer rental back to the store.

But the additional benefit, especially for someone like myself who has purchased a (new to me) older home, is that I can also use the Wagner power steamer for cleaning the house. I have a kitchen floor and bathroom floor that have seen better days, and I have high hopes of removing years of grime. I’m sure I will also find many other uses as well.
