How To Remove Wall Stickers
Wall Stickers are becoming more and more popular within households and workplaces. They are mess free, affordable and can be changed to keep up with the trends. Not only are our wall stickers of the highest quality but they can be removed with ease. Here I am going to explain the benefits of removable wall stickers and provide a step-by-step guide to removal.
Our removable wall stickers are great for a child’s room as you can replace them as they grow without any great expense or work. A boy could go through phases of dinosaurs to space and planets and then onto their favourite super hero, or a girl could go through a journey of princess to fairies and then onto their favourite animal.
Removable wall stickers are also great for occasions where the wall stickers need to be removed after the event. You could decorate a room in the morning for a wedding or a birthday party and simply take them down the next day without any hassle or fuss and no need to completely overhaul your décor at home.
How To Remove Wall Stickers
To remove our wall decals simply heat them gently using a hair dryer, this will then allow you to slowly peel them from the wall. Due to the high quality of materials that we use this process should leave no residue or other signs that a wall sticker has been removed.
Follow this simple step by step process to removing your wall art:
- Firstly start by pulling away at a corner, if the decal hasn’t been on the wall for a long period of time you should be able to – slowly and gently – pull it off with no fuss. If your decal has been up for a number of years, this may take a little more time and you will need to follow the next few steps.
- If you have access to a hairdryer then simply apply the heat in the area you want to remove first. This will not only loosen the adhesive but you should also be able to start gently peeling away at the sticker.
- Once working down the whole sticker and discarding the used vinyl you should be left with the blank canvas you started with. Perhaps you are applying a newer decal or just painting the wall!
Safety When Removing Wall Stickers
Please keep in mind that although the hairdryer is a household item, if the heat source is held too close to the sicker the vinyl can get very hot very quickly and we wouldn’t want you to burn yourself.
Tips For Removing Wall Stickers
Please remember to always remove the wall sticker slowly and gently, no matter how long it has been on the wall for. If you use a fast ripping motion there is a chance that you can peel off paint and damage the surface underneath.
In the rare off chance that your sticker has left a residue – this can happen if the sticker was heated up too much – then all you have to do is simply wipe away. Some people find it easier to heat the left over residue up first then you are able to roll it into a ball like it were blue tack!
So in three (or maybe even one if the sticker was applied recently) easy steps you now have a freely spaced wall!
