to DIF Wallpaper Stripper, most professional paperhangers would not
strip wallpaper. The reason: Removing wallcoverings was so difficult
and took so much time that homeowners balked at paying what a contractor
had to charge to cover his labor costs.
did not want to strip wallcoverings either. This was one DIY task they
avoided - difficult, messy, and slow.
Wallpaper Stripper changed all that. Professionals realized that with
DIF they could strip wallcoverings quickly, reliably, and at a price
consumers could afford - and at which they could make money. It also
meant more business for them since they got the hanging work as well
as the stripping.
DIF is different from any other wallpaper remover on the market. It
is the only one that contains special enzymes - a unique formulation
on which Zinsser holds patents. Moreover, it has a superior, more effective
blend of wetting agents that speeds DIF is penetration of the wallpaper
and resoulubilization of the paste.
contrast to DIF, ordinary wallpaper removers, which merely wet the paper
and the paste, require a lot of scraping and do not work well except
on loose sections. Softened paste tends to build up on the scraper blades,
blunting it and leading to wall gouging. DIF eliminated damage to walls
where removal of uncoated, water-permeable wallpaper was involved.
DIF is better than attempting to remove wallpaper with hot water, vinegar
and water, or other "home brew" solutions. DIF requires no
steamers, so you don't have to bear the cost, mess, difficulty, or danger
associated with the use and rental of wallpaper steamers.
