Removing Wall Murals
If you need to remove your wall mural for any reason, rest assured, your walls will look fantastic once the panels have been removed following these instructions.
If you chose SmartStick® material, carefully peel the panels off the wall at a 45 degree angle, from top to bottom.
Eco Bella™ - Texture & Vinyl HD - Texture
If you chose Eco Bella™ - Texture or Vinyl HD - Texture material, carefully pull on the mural from one of the edges at a 45 degree angle, panel by panel. Once the entire mural is removed, wipe off any paste residue left on the walls with a clean, damp sponge or towel. The wall is now ready to be painted or have another wallpaper mural installed.
If you choose Prepasted Wallpaper, saturate the wallpaper and let relax for 2 minutes, this allows the adhesive to activate for easy removal. Pull each panel down from top to bottom at a 45 degree angle. Once the entire mural is removed, wipe off any paste residue left on the walls with a clean, damp sponge or towel. The wall is now ready to be painted or have another wallpaper mural installed.
Please note that if you choose to top coat Prepasted Wallpaper, the removal is not as clean as without top coat and may cause damage to your wall. To remove Prepasted Wallpaper that has been topcoated, you will need to score the wallpaper and heavily saturate with water. Allow 2 minutes for the water to relax the paste, pull down at a 45 degree angle. Spray with more water as needed.
To remove VersaGrip, use a putty knife or razor to pull up a corner of the material. Peel the material off at a 45 degree angle. NOTE: VersaGrip is easiest to remove under warm conditions.
Frosted Window Film
While removing Frosted Window Film, do not bend back the corners. Apply at least 3” to 4” of Scotch Tape onto any corner of the printed piece. Pull the extended tape to lift the material from the surface (see image). This will eliminate any bending of corners. If a crease or bend is created, you can try bending the material in the opposite direction to flatten. If you plan to reuse the material, be sure to roll the product in whichever way will be towards the surface it is being applied to.
