Remove all furniture from the room, or protect it with tarps. . Spread out a tarp on the floor to catch stucco as it is removed from the wall. Put on safety goggles and work gloves.
Remove the Fixtures
Remove any wall sconces, light switches and other fixtures from the wall. Switch off the power to that wall at the home circuit breaker box.
Wet the Walls
Fill a spray bottle with warm water. Spritz down a section of the wall thoroughly. A lot of water may be needed to adequately soften the stucco. Make a small hole in the wall by scraping away the wet stucco with the edge of the blade perpendicular to the stucco. Wet down another section of stucco to the side of this hole.
Remove Sections of Stucco
Place the edge of the scraper against the drywall that has been exposed by the small hole. Hold the scraper edge at a 30-degree angle and firmly push against the wet stucco in front of the scraper. The angle of the scraper and the pressure applied should force the stucco from the wall. Repeat this process in sections until all of the stucco is removed.Learn more about Home Maintenance
