Working with Our Wallpaper
One of the unique things about our peel-and-stick removable wallpaper is the way it can be removed and re-positioned as needed when you’re putting it up. However, this won’t work on some surfaces, including:
- Textured walls (although once you sand them down and clean them up, you should be OK)
- Varnished wood
- Existing vinyl
- Walls painted with certain water-based (porous) paints and/or flat matte finishes
Applying our peel-and-stick removable wallpaper to any of these surfaces can mess with its adhesiveness, and it might not come off easily (or worse, it could damage the surface).
In addition, we don’t recommend using our peel-and-stick removable wallpaper on freshly painted walls. It takes paint roughly 30-40 days to fully cure (even if it’s dry to the touch). Waiting those 4-6 weeks definitely makes a difference in making sure the wallpaper doesn’t bubble and the paint stays damage-free.
If you’re planning to apply our wallpaper to any of these surfaces, user discretion is advised.
If the paper accidentally gets stuck to itself, have someone help you slowly pull the panels away from each other. In some cases, this will leave you with a bit of slightly wrinkled paper whose errors may seem unrecognizable on the wall. However, this does sometimes pull the ink off the surface. Please be careful when handling our wallpaper, as Wild Habitat cannot be held responsible for errors like this.
