About this deal

When the steam plate is held against the wall, steam penetrates the paper, which saturates the backing and partially dissolves the old wallpaper paste releasing the old paper from the wall or ceiling quickly and easily. It also offers a diverse cleaning solution for dirt, grease, germ and stain removal which is environmentally friendly and cost-effective. One of Earlex'smost popular kits which is perfect for fast and simple removal of wall coverings, from wallpaper to Artex.

The Earlex SS125UKP is fitted with a powerful 2000 watt element that heats the water more quickly so that it will save energy and cost.Also the cable from machine to socket could possibly do with being a bit longer - wasn't an issue for me as plenty of sockets, but might be otherwise.

Once the heating element has boiled the water the steam passes through a cool to touch hose and comes out the steam plate. After filling you will have to wait for 12 minutes for the water to fully steam after which you're ready to go. Any details you provide are kept securely and are not shared, sold or passed on to any third parties. I can’t compare to more expensive ones but this has been a great help getting through layers of painted wallpaper, wallpaper, paint, wallpaper and several layers of wallpaper.

It does have a smaller reservoir than other items, however that is due to its small size and it makes it very easy and lightweight to use in tighter areas so I do not see this as being a problem. I bought this Stripper mainly to remove the build up of ("It does what it says on the tin") varnish from my Cedar gate and fence, it did this OK by blistering the varnish and enabling it to be peeled off, I have used these gadgets in the past for removing vinyl wall paper and Artex and they work very well, what I didn't know and was a bonus is that they also could be used for sterilising soil so very useful in the greenhouse.

The on-board storage also makes it compact and portable, making it the perfect choice for a painter and decorator. The hose feels as though it could be damaged relatively easy when it's cold but once it's had steam through it and warms up it becomes quite flexible.The steam plate, cable and hose are designed to pack away neatly making it compact and easy to move from job to job. The 4 litre tank has a 2kw heating element that provides up to 70 minutes of steam time from one fill; perfect for all small to medium jobs. The Earlex DIY wallpaper stripper is ideal for quick and effective removal of all types of wallpaper and Artex.
