Premier Wallpaper Stripper WS77

Premier Wallpaper Stripper WS77

Wallpaper stripper with two steam plates

The Premier Wallpaper Stripper 77 is one of the fastest and easiest ways to remove all types of wall coverings and Artex®. One of our most popular systems, it can cope with all manner of tasks. The 5 litre tank comes with a 2.3kw heating element that provides 78 minutes of continuous steam time from just one fill.

Once the water has reached boiling point the water evaporates and produces steam out of the plate. Not one but two handy steam plates are provided with the Premier wallpaper stripper; the first is a large steam plate, translucent in colour, which tackles larger area’s whilst providing visibility on application. The second is a small steam plate; perfect for hard to reach areas like corners, or by radiators and windows.

The steam penetrates through the old wallpaper and moistens the old adhesive beneath. The wallpaper will then become loose and can then be removed either by peeling off the paper or by scraping it off. The Premier Wallpaper Stripper comes with a precision scraper to remove the paper from the wall.

The system itself is made out of a lightweight material so it’s quick to move around. The system only uses water from the tap so it’s an environmentally friendly way to remove wallpaper, plus it’s cost effective to run.

Wallpaper Stripper Features

Great Stripper
“Simple to set up, Simple to use, Just does a great job, made my life so much easier, enough said”
The Solution to Woodchip
“Just bought a elderly bungalow with woodchip on most of the walls – painted in various shades of mud colour – yes it’s as bad as it sounds. This piece of kit really does get the wretched stuff of the walls without ruining the plasterwork. Shame it does not work on mud coloured carpets!”
Wall Paper Steamer
“Very useful tool did exactly what I needed it to. Has a small attachment which works well around windows. Heats up quickly”
Very Good Product
“I wanted to strip Artex from 2 walls in my house so I decided on the SS77 Wallpaper stripper. It was excellent for what I wanted to do. It stripped the artex off in a couple of hours off both walls. If you want to strip artex of walls or ceilings this is the tool for you.”
“Wallpaper stripping easy. What more could I ask?”
Super Steam Stripper
“Purchased this steam stripper for stripping ancient wall paper. It was absolutely a delight to use and the 2 sizes of stripper heads were very efficient indeed. The steam kept going for over an hour before I had to top up the tank. From empty filling with cold water, it heats up very rapidly in around 10-12 minutes. This enables the job to be done more quickly and efficiently. A good buy. The safe cool hose was appreciated as before I had an old steam stripper with a rubber hose and it would burn your skin during use if it wrapped over your arm.”

Q. Can I put any wallpaper stripping additives in my unit?
A. Although some of these additives are designed for wallpaper strippers they are not recommended for ours, as they can damage internal components.

Q. How do I remove stubborn paper?
A. Score the paper either with a knife or perforating tool then use steamer as normal.

Q. Can’t I just hold the plate on for longer?
A. Do not hold it in the same spot for more than 10 seconds, as there is a risk it will burst the plaster underneath.

Q. How close can I get to light switches with the plate?
A. Do not allow water or steam to enter light switches or power points. Isolate the power at the main fuse box and then remove the face plate. This will allow you to remove any old paper that is stuck behind the socket/switch by hand with a damp sponge. Replace face plate when finished.

Q. Is it safe to remove Artex?
A. Normally Artex can be removed using the same method for wallpaper although the steam time will be longer. CAUTION: Some textured finishes may contain asbestos which may be hazardous to health and which are subject to licensing controls operated by the HSE (Health and Safety Executive).

Q. How about ceilings?
A. Always wear appropriate PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) when using any Earlex appliance. We recommend that you will need eye and hand protection due to possible hot water discharge from condensing steam.
