Yet Another GARDZ/Wallpaper/Painting Question
I have read many of the threads on wallpaper removal, and I am still confused as to what I should be doing.
Done so far:
1. Removed wallpaper using Diff -- some of the drywall "paper" came off with the wallpaper.
2. Thoroughly washed down the walls getting as much glue off as possible.
Now plan to:
3. Apply a coat of GARDZ (after allowing the walls to dry thoroughly)
4. Use joint compound to repair any wall surface damaged by the removal
5. Use spackling compound to repair nail holes, etc.
6. Sand the areas where I use the joint and spackling compounds
7. Reapply GARDZ where I've sanded.
8. Paint (2 coats)
I see on another thread this recommendation:

1. Strip paper, 2. sand off loose and fuzzy stuff, 3. apply Gardz, 4. sand, 5. skim, 6. sand, 7. clean dust, 8. apply Gardz, 9 paint.
Is it necessary to sand the entire wall after the Gardz application and then "skim" (?) and then sand and reapply Gardz or is that for very damaged walls? Should I reapply GARDZ just where I've used the compounds after I sand? I'm doing 4 rooms and I just don't think I have it in me to sand each room 3 times.
Will my plan work?
Thank you in advance for any and all advice.
