How to Remove Wallpaper

How To Remove Wallpaper

Wallpaper can get a bad rap; older varieties are notoriously difficult to remove and can even cause wall damage. Thankfully, present day advances in adhesives and wallcovering materials mean those fears are a thing of the past. At Murals Your Way, all of our wallcovering materials are removable when installed properly. How they’re installed, however, will influence the method for removing them.

Eco Bella™️ - Texture

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.

Prepasted

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 reside left on the walls with a clean, damp sponge or towel.

SmartStick®️

Carefully peel the panels off the wall at a 45-degree angle, from top to bottom.

Vinyl HD - Texture

Carefully pull on the mural from one of the edges at a 45-egree 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.

VersaGrip

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.
