Wallpaper steam strippers are used during house renovations to strip off old wallpaper with the help of steam. Water is heated in a vessel and the warm, moist steam is guided under a hollow steam plate which is held against the wall. The steam moistens the wallpaper and dissolves the adhesive. The wallpaper can now be lifted off and removed with a scraper or spatula.
