The hangers that I know will strip and wash the walls clean. WASH THE WALLS CLEAN of all paste residue.

I can't tell you HOW many painters have left stripped walls with an unacceptable amount of paste residue still on. When questioning them, without exception, they say all they would need do is sand and prime.

Can't tell you how many painters I've had to re-train to be qualified to strip walls before I hang.

Now if you are one also to WASH THE WALLS CLEAN, then bless you.

Don't think that would happen. She's called me in to prime old liners she was going to hang back over. Also, drywall repair. I mean, I guess the drywall thing is understandable, but I still don't get being afraid of priming a wall.

I'm just talking about all of the unnecessary wall damage I might find.
