    "First of all ascertain the wallpaper type (vinyl, anaglypta, polystyrene backed,lining paper) is to be removed (this dictates the removal method (steaming, dry removal, or by liberal application of water). Then discover the type of wall upon which the paper has been applied (Plaster, Plasterboard, concrete, wood).
    As this could be classed as a low skilled job (approx £10 per hour) i would think it should take two days."
