Work step

Depending on the amount of water in the container, it can take up to 12 minutes for the system to generate steam. A full container generates steam for around 85 minutes.

We recommend descaling our wallpaper steamers after every 6th use. How often you have to descale a device depends significantly on the water hardness. You can determine this using a water hardness test, which can be purchased in DIY stores or online.

If the wallpaper steamer no longer boils the water or switches off after a short steam phase, descale the device. Limescale can settle on the heating element and insulate it. As a result, the heating element can no longer give off sufficient heat to the water. The temperature at the heating element continues to rise and the wallpaper steamer switches itself off for safety reasons.

  1. Use commercially available liquids or tablets to descale the system and pour 1.5 litres of water into a measuring cup.
  2. Add the required amount of descaler according to the manufacturer’s instructions and mix the solution thoroughly.
  3. Pour the descaling solution into the device.
  4. Switch on the wallpaper steamer.
  5. Switch off the wallpaper steamer after about 10 minutes and unplug the device.
  6. Allow the descaling solution to soak for another 30 minutes.
  7. Then empty the wallpaper steamer completely.
  8. Then rinse the device thoroughly several times with fresh water to remove all residues of the descaling solution.

No. The device is not designed for any other applications. If you use the product for other applications, the guarantee becomes null and void.

In the case of multi-layered and painted wallpapers, incisions or perforations can ensure that the steam can penetrate through the layer. This makes the wallpaper peel off more easily.

The water that is filled into the steamer is heated to boiling point and the steam that is released can scald the skin! Protect your skin from contacting the steamer plate and wear protective gloves.
