mudding wallpaper


Hi all...im tryng to repaint kitchen and bath walls and ceiling in mobile home..its got wallpaper so I peeled it off and did a coat with kilz stain blocker, however, it seems not all wallpaper has peeled properly and still peeling with wet rollers. can I fix this by just mudding a thin coat of all-pupose sheetrock joint compound and sanding to paint?

also on another nother note, I need to repair a small piece of drywall, but the piece of drywall I had, got wet in the rain, will it be ok to use when it dries? its not warped or anything, just wet.

thanks

Prime the wall with some Gardz. I believe most Home Depots carry it.


As far using the drywall that got wet depends on how wet?
If your in a pinch and it didn't get totally soaked it might work?

My HD didn't carry Gardz.

I ordered it from Amazon and got it in 3 days.

A lot of times it's the wallpaper adhesive that is the problem. You should have wiped down the walls with some sort of wallpaper stripping solution such as DIF (made by Zinser). Also, did you use oil based Kilz? It seals much better than the latex....

All the loose must come off the Guardz will keep more from coming loose but what is loose must be cleaned off just to mud over it will not hold it from coming off. Depends on how wet the piece got if it got too wet sometimes they can be crumbly and not hold a screw or the paper can come loose.

Oh yeah, that's correct as far as the drywall that got wet. If the core of the board is still crisp after it dries it's fine to use.
