DIY with Jiffy Steamer

Maybe you're moving into a fixer-upper, or perhaps it's time to refresh your current home's interior. If you have projects around the house, there's no better tool for a DIY-er than a Jiffy Steamer.

The prospect of a do-it-yourself project can be a bit daunting, but there's nothing like the satisfaction of a job well done. Plus, it is much more cost-effective than hiring a professional, meaning you have more money to invest elsewhere in your property. So grab your steamer and let's get down to it!

Remove Wallpaper Like a Pro

Wallpaper can become outdated and damaged over time. Removing it and replacing it with a fresh coat of paint or updated wallpaper can completely transform a room with relatively little expense. If you're ready to say "out with the old and in with the new," a Jiffy Commercial Multipurpose Steamer will make removing that dated wallpaper a breeze!

Other removal methods are time consuming and messy. For example, the common practice of spraying the wall down with water to loosen adhesive can take double the time and cause damage to your drywall. The powerful, hot steam from a Jiffy is much more effective in achieving the desired result.

The first step is to prep the room. Watch this video for instructions on safety steps to take before beginning your project. When you're ready to begin, simply pick a corner and get to steaming. Hot steam is perfect for removing stiff, old wallpapers and those that have been adhered for a long time. Hold your Jiffy in place until the adhesive has loosened and you are able to easily remove the paper from the wall with a scraper. That's all there is to it!

Carpet Installation Made Easy

A clean new carpet is an excellent way to change the look and feel of a space. But new carpeting can be costly and the addition of installation expenses can blow your budget. If you're ready to take on this task yourself, look no further than a Jiffy Commercial Carpet Steamer.

Again, preparation is key. First, make sure the subfloor is smooth and clean. Remove doors to the room from their hinges so that you don't have to work around them. When installing, utilize your steamer to relax and stretch the carpet so that it lays more easily. It is essential that carpet be stretched tightly to prevent it from bunching over time. Nothing gets that job done better than a Jiffy!

Your steamer will also come in handy for maintaining the appearance of your carpet over time. Use it to remove dents caused by heavy furniture, kill odors and freshen your carpet periodically.

Steam Drapes and Upholstery for a Fresh Appearance

When the goal is saving money, sometimes the best thing to do is make the most of what you already have. Replacing the wallpaper and carpet in a room go a long way towards transformation. But if your furniture and drapery look worn and wrinkled, they can take away from all your hard work.

Jiffy's Upholstery Steamer solves that problem. It breathes new life into upholstered furniture and crumpled drapes, restoring their appearance and saving you from expensive home goods purchases. You can also leave the fabrics smelling great with the help of our scented steam sprays.

 

There you have it! Now that you see how the power of steam is a DIY dream, pick up a Jiffy Steamer of your own today. Then roll up those sleeves and get ready to blow your friends and family away with your renovation skills. HGTV's got nothing on you!
