Wallpaper removed - PVA still required?

Hello All

As it says really - wallpaper is now off and what is left is quite sticky/tacky when it gets wet. Most of it is sealed with paint so I would guess it wouldn't suck that much.

Question is are both coats of PVA still needed? Maybe just the first one to seal it all in 100%. What would you do - could I get away with just skimming over ?

Sugar soap first.
That’s all you’re getting, just because I’m in a good mood at the minute!
 
You honestly think the wall paper paste will mean you don’t have to pva? I strongly suggest you get someone in who knows their job.
