Mrs Susan Downey

I need to know if I can paint right over the area where I took off the wallpaper or do I need to wash the surface first?

Thank you for your reply.

I've removed wallpaper more times than I care to count. If the wallpaper came off cleanly, there will still be some residual wallpaper glue and/or sizing on the walls. This comes off cleanly with some warm water.

If the wallpaper didn't come off cleanly in some sections - - and especially if any of the wallboard paper was removed inadvertently, - - you must prime these sections with a good primer. After your walls are clean and sound - - you can repaint.
