For less than the cost of a weekend Hire from my local Builders Merchant, I bought my steamer. It was used to remove old wallpaper and, get this!, old tile adhesive! It worked fantastically well.
Really, what more can I say? Go and buy one!!!

Wagner W14 240V Wallpaper Steamer
Does exactly what it says on the box - very efficient and makes a time consuming job much quicker. Beware of hot water splashing and running down your arm. Very good value for money.

If you've ever tried to remove wallpaper with ANYTHING, then you'll want to get this. The house I live in is over a hundred years old and there was literally seven layers of wallpaper. This Wagner W1420V steamer saved my life and my arms.

This item works pretty well - the only downside I found was that you will need to keep switching it off at the socket in between uses.
All in all a good product that worked well & did what it said it would do..

After a wasted Saturday afternoon trying to strip wallpaper which must have put up with super glue, I read the reviews for this steamer, placed an order and it arrived very quickly, this afternoon (Tuesday). I still wondered if I had done the right thing, because I remember we borrowed one of these steamers (not this make), in the past and it was rubbish. However, having now (after just a couple of hours), nearly stripped the whole room with it, I have to say this is an excellent purchase, worth every penny. If your thinking of redecorating buy one of these!

I bought this a couple of months ago after reading its good reviews. I have had no problems at all with scaling, and I live in a very heavy limescale area in the Cotswolds. Bearing in mind other reviewers' comments I have been filling it with a weak solution of malt vinegar (about £1.50 for 5 litres from your local greengrocer)and water while it's still warm, but without boiling it, and leaving it to stand overnight after each day's usage. This has kept the electric element clean and shiny. Just pour the vinegar solution back into something like those huge Buxton water bottles, and use it again. My husband is stripping off about 9 layers of paint and wallpaper to get back to the original lime plaster so this steamer is working HARD! There is still a lot of scraping to do; don't be fooled into thinking a steamer takes all the effort out of it. However this has rendered the impossible possible.

It could be improved by having a clear strip at the back so you can see the water level when filling and when using, otherwise I think it's quite hard to see. A picture of what the steamer head looks like on both sides would help as I nearly returned it because it looked as though it was missing a part, with plastic lugs to click something into. Actally, it's for the perforating attachment which is sold separately for this model.
I would strongly recommend having a washing-up bowl next to you to put the steamer head in when you put it down as it does dribble very hot water... and obviously plastic sheeting and old towels to mop up the excess water by the skirting boards. A full tank runs for at least an hour.

Overall we are very satisfied with it, and very very grateful for it.

Right, I've never taken wall paper off a wall before, so didn't know what to expect. Bought this as others have rated it highly. I can see why. It's basically a kettle with a long hose! I used it to strip woodchip paper off the walls and ceiling. Don't let anyone tell you it's a quick fun job, it isn't, but this steamer worked well and did the job. Recommend it.

An absolute dream machine we used this steamer for stripping polyripple artexing from the hall, stairs,landing and ceilings it is by far and above the best steamer we have ever used,and the best decorating tool investment we have ever made,we were sceptical at first because the price tag was so inexpensive compared to other steamers, it has a very long working time between fill ups, minimum drip and cuts out automatically when empty, the weight of the machine adds to the allure and it has a very long hose for reaching those high areas easily, it works great upside down and i would highly recommend this machine to anyone who is thinking about purchasing a steamer it is a very a wise investment and works better than all the industrial steamers which i have used over the years.Wagner W14 240V Wallpaper Steamer
