How to Remove Old Wall Paper

How to Remove Old Wall Paper

Share Button

Wall paper steamerWallpaper is notoriously difficult to remove if you don't know what you're doing. Simply peeling it off results in half the thickness coming off, and you're left with the pattern being removed, with the backing still firmly attached to the wall. Worse still, is the wallpaper that doesn't even allow that to happen, and you're left picking at the small bits that provide you with slow peeling, and no satisfaction of taking a big chunk off at a time. But thankfully, there are several effective and easier ways how to remove old wallpaper and leave a good flat surface as a result.

Featured: Wagner Power Products 282018 1-Gallon Wallpaper Steamer

The first way is to score the wallpaper with a knife and then soak it with a stripping solution. These special prepared solutions are available for purchase, but be sure to follow its own guidelines for application. Often it can help to add some hot water to the solution to speed up the process and make it more effective. Apply this special solution to the wall and allow it to soak in for several minutes. The scores allow this solution to penetrate behind the wallpaper and this helps loosen the adhesive between paper and the wall.

Next use a wide putty knife to lever up the paper and gently pull it up and everything being equal, you should be able to pull off big pieces of paper at a time.

A second solution is to use a wallpaper steamer. These are great tools that really aid the removal of old wallpaper. The steamer is filled with water which is boiled. The hot vapors travel down a long tube and out to a rectangular plastic cup. Apply this cup to the wall, and hold it against the wall for several seconds. Then move to an adjacent section, and do the same again. Repeat four or five times, and then you should be able remove old wallpaper easily. If any paper is still being resistant, then simply apply the steamer to it and try again.

Steaming is a great technique especially for plastered walls, but on drywall, more care should be taken because it is more suceptible to water damage, as well as the possibility of being gouged by the putty knife. Although any gouges and holes can be filled and sanded after, this will increase your workload. Also, don't forget to be careful as the steam can easily burn you if you're not careful.

Putty knives or paint stripping tools can now be bought in plastic versions instead of metal. These are just as effective, but are also less likely to leave gouges or cuts in the wall, especially drywall board. It's a useful tip to know.

These two methods are the most effective ways on how to remove old wall paper. Once you have mastered the amount of solution or steam necessary for application, you should be able to quickly and easily remove the wall paper. With both methods, the aim is to reduce the effectiveness of the original adhesive used to fix the paper to the wall, and once this has been effected, removal of the paper should be simple.

Makita 5007MG Ergonomic Industrial Motor Magnesium 7-1/4-Inch Circular Saw Review

Makita 5007MG Ergonomic Industrial Motor Magnesium 7-1/4-Inch Circular Saw Review

Share Button

Makita Circular SawA Tool for Every Need
There are carpenter tools and then there are professional carpenter tools and the latter is radically different from the other when it comes to proficiency and efficiency.  One of the best professional level tools is the Makita 5007MG Magnesium 7-1/4-Inch Circular Saw. The 5007MG is the essential carpenter's tool when it comes to cutting wood and it is designed to give out optimal cutting power without requiring a lot of effort from your end. This is the tool that helps you make the most of your time cutting wood and is designed for easy accuracy so that you won't make any errors or spend too much time making adjustments to your measurements.

Good Design Points
There are a lot of good points to talk about when it comes to the Makita 5007MG and most of it draws from the ergonomic design and the powerful motor that drives this machine. Unlike other tools that hard to hold, hard to see with, and hard to make an accurate cut without exerting too much effort, the 5007MGis a tool designed for easy gripping, easy measuring and requires very minimal effort on your end. Here is a brief but detailed look at the top reasons why this particular circular saw rests on top of the crowd.

First of all you will notice that the Makita 5007MG is run by a powerful 15 AMP, 5,800 RPM motor. This guarantees that you get the most precise cuts without the need to push down hard or to exert a lot of effort just to get a minimal cut on the wood. This kind of power means you can expect to use the circular saw on just about any kind of wood material and still feel like you're cutting butter with a hot knife.

For a tool this strong it is incredibly light and easy to hold. Older models from Makita used to be built of steel and other heavy materials but now they have turned to a decent mix of light but durable metal materials such as magnesium. This places the entire tool weighing a total of only 10.1 lbs. This goes well with the ergonomic design that makes the back and front grips easy to hold even for people with large hands or those who tend to wear thick gloves while working. The design of the grips also allows you to get a clearer view of the cutting area. Other circular saws block your vision and you usually have to rely on pure instinct to get an accurate cut. To further remedy this problem you are provided with two LED lights that function as guide lights when working. This is a tremendous help especially if you are making millimeter-precision cuts.

The warranty for the Makita 5007MG Magnesium 7-1/4-Inch Circular Saw is another good thing to look into. For the first thirty days you can give back the 5007MG for a replacement or for a complete refund if you find yourself unsatisfied with its performance. After that you still get a full one year warranty in case any of the parts break due to a poor design or any failure on behalf of Makita. This is the perfect warranty for this kind of product because you never can be sure of the quality during the first thirty days and it may take some time to notice whether a part of the saw is not on par with the superior quality that the products are known for.

The Cons
If there is any complaint to make about this product it is concerned with the included saw blade. True, they do advertise that the blade is coated with materials that will guarantee it can bite through anything without getting damaged but the truth is that after some time you can expect to start losing blade teeth. This is not a major concern however as you can easily replace these with other top of the line saw blades that easily fit into the Makita 5007MG.

[phpzon asin="B000N5SVEY" country="US" trackingid="diy-do-it-yourself-20" templatename="asin"]

The Verdict
So how does the 5007MG live up to the standards of Makita? For a device that greatly empowers the user with its easy and effective ergonomic design and its motor that ensures you can use this tool for any kind of wood material and any wood cutting job.

Christmas Wall Decal DecorationsIf you are looking for an easy and inexpensive way to decorate for Christmas, especially in a rented or temporary space like an apartment or dorm room, one of the easiest is using Christmas wall decals.

Wall decals have been overtaking the wall decorating market as a substitute for wall paper. They are much less permanent, easy to change out and cheap. You can apply them in minutes, and use them for kids rooms, kitchens, bathrooms and more. However, for Christmas wall decor, they are supreme. While similar to stickers, they don't leave behind sticky residue, and can be taken down almost as quickly as you can put them up. Also, they are very cheap compared to many other decorations.

How to Buy a Ceiling Fan for Your Home and Install It

How to Buy a Ceiling Fan for Your Home and Install It

Share Button

Hubbardton Ceiling FanCeiling fans should be correctly fastened to an electric ceiling box that is designed to sustain a heavy ceiling fixture. It must not only hold the wiring, but the total weight of the fan must be supported. If the ceiling fixture you had previously was of light weight, the box will probably have to be replaced with one manufactured for ceiling fans.

Determine Your Usage

If you prefer a ceiling fan to circulate heat during the cold months, known as reclaiming heat, and keep you cool during the summer months, a ceiling fan with reverse remote control is best. During summer months the fan blade should rotate in a counter-clockwise motion. For winter month the blades should turn in a clockwise motion.

Featured: Fanimation HF7600DS Hubbardton Forge Presidio Tryne Ceiling Fan, Dark Smoke Finish, 5 Slate Blades, Opal Glass

Will Fans go Outside or Inside?

If your fan will be on your patio, porch, or in a screened area, outdoor fans will be the most accommodating. Outside ceiling fans are UL classified for damp and wet areas. Wet ceiling fans can stand-up to direct weather changes and damp-rated ceiling fans can be inside covered outside areas like patios.

Where to Place Your Ceiling Fan

When purchasing your ceiling fan, be aware of which room and the size of the room your fan will be installed. Air movement is the mix of a number of factors. A large room or living room ceiling fan should be large, and bedroom fans should have a quiet motor with a minimum four star rating for great uninterrupted sleep.

Recommended Installation Heights

  • To decide the correct height for your ceiling fan, measure the length from the precise point in the ceiling where it is in conjunction with the floor right below.
  • Ceilings under eight feet, should utilize a flush-mount ceiling fan. Codes require that ceiling fan blades are not lower than seven feet from the floor which makes flush-mount ceiling fans your best bet.
  • For ceilings below eight feet consider hugger ceiling fans minus any lights, since they are inclined to be the lowest profile-fans.
  • Ceiling fans should hang eight to nine feet from the floor.
  • Fan blades must be at least seven feet away from the floor.
  • Fan blades must be a minimum of 8.5 inches from the ceiling.
  • If you have very high ceilings, lowering the ceiling fan would be practical. This will improve cool-air circulation or heat reclamation.

Ceiling Fans and Your Home Decor

There are a number of basic rules applied when selecting a ceiling fan finish for your home. Ceiling fan etiquette states that fan motor finishes are normally selected to match additional metallic hardware in a room such as door knobs and table lamps. Fan blade finishes are normally made from wood and should match door, flooring, and furniture. The style of your room has plenty to do with your choice of ceiling fan as well.

These three styles of ceiling fans are the most popular:

  • Contemporary-for sleek architectural styled rooms.
  • Traditional-for more formal type rooms.
  • Exotic-for bright, sunny rooms with rattan and palm-leaf materials.

Tools you will need:

  • Wire cutters/strippers
  • Side-cutting pliers
  • Crescent wrench
  • Voltage tester or multi-tester
  • Drill with long bit
  • Long nose pliers
  • Hammer
  • Reciprocating saw
  • Lineman's pliers
  • Metal-cutting keyhole saw

Installation:

Examine the joists for wiring or plumbing pipes that may be a hindrance prior to installing your fan.  Be sure the electrical box that keeps the fan in place is classified.  Check all parts and instructions prior to beginning your installation.

The installation process itself is quite simple; the steps go as follows:

  1. Slip In the brace
  2.  Tighten the brace
  3. Attach the box
  4. Install the mounting plate
  5. Put together the down-rod and canopy
  6. Wire the fan
  7. Fasten the canopy to the mounting plate
  8. Attach the blades

Greenworks 27012 10-Inch 8 Amp Electric Cultivator/Tiller Rototiller

Greenworks 27012 10-Inch 8 Amp Electric Cultivator/Tiller Rototiller

Share Button

Have you been searching for a quality rototiller, that has plenty of power and an affordable price? Finding the right unit can be a challenge, as there are many options on the market today, and not all of them are well-made! In addition, if you prefer to save the environment by going electric, then your available choices dwindle even further. Luckily, the Greenworks 27012 10-Inch 8 Amp Electric Cultivator/Tiller is an excellent solution, as it has a variety of different benefits and features to commend it to you.

First of all, it doesn't produce any harmful emissions, unlike gas tillers which contribute to pollution. This also means you won't be breathing in fumes while working in your garden, which is a nice added bonus! In addition, you won't have the hassle of buying fuel or refilling the tank in the middle of your project. Further, getting tune-ups will be a thing of the past, as you won't have all of the same scheduled maintenance to worry about. Essentially, if you've been looking for a rototiller that is stress free and good for the environment, then the Greenworks 27012 Rototiller is the machine for you.

Yet, you may worry about its power capabilities, and if it can tackle your gardening jobs. Many owners of this product are pleasantly surprised to find that its power surpasses that of their old gas-powered rototiller. In fact, it has been known to churn up large rocks, break through sizable dirt clumps with ease, rip through medium-sized roots and even take on hardened clay soil.

Greenworks RototillerThe Greenworks 27012 Rototiller features 4 tines that chew up the dirt, which you can remove for easy cleaning. Also, you can adjust the tilling width depending upon your needs, to either 6.25 or 10 inches. You'll likely enjoy the cord lock as well, which keeps the electrical cord in place during use. Some customers have commented that this isn't as reliable as they would like, but this is easily fixed with a zip-tie. Finally, the depth of your till is fully adjustable, allowing you to select how far down in the soil you'd like to go.

For the best results the manufacturer suggests that you remove any grass and weeds on the surface, and break up the top soil with a shovel. The Greenworks 27012 Rototiller will handle the job from there, allowing you to plant in freshly tilled soil! Also, with its compact size it is perfect for confined gardening spaces, as it has a smaller turning radius than bigger models.

This rototiller also comes with a 4 year warranty, which is twice the industry standard. Greenworks truly stands behind the quality of their manufacturing, and you can expect your tiller to last for many seasons to come. People also love how a design which is more compact and weighs less than bigger units, can deliver the same level of power. This is perfect if you've been having trouble handling a larger machine, or the effort of using a heavier rototiller is becoming a problem.

All in all, the Greenworks 27012 10-Inch 8 Amp Electric Cultivator/Tiller is an excellent value, giving you the most for your money. If you have a small to medium-sized garden and you'd like to lower your carbon footprint, then this is an excellent choice. You'll no longer have to deal with the problems associated with gas-powered units, yet you'll still enjoy the power and performance that the 27012 delivers.
