KATIE KIME PEEL & STICK INSTALLATION
Before applying peel and stick wallpaper, ensure that the wall surface is clean and smooth. Use a damp cloth or sponge to remove any dust, dirt, or grease. If there are stubborn stains, you may need to use a mild detergent solution to clean the surface. Make sure the wall is completely dry before proceeding.
Inspect the wall for any imperfections such as cracks, holes, or uneven surfaces. Fill in any holes or cracks with spackle or joint compound, and sand them down until they are smooth. If the wall has a textured surface, you may need to apply a primer to create a smoother surface for the wallpaper to adhere to.
For particularly smooth walls or new construction, you can prime your walls before hanging the wallpaper for best results. Use a white primer like Roman PRO-977 ULTRA-PRIME® or similar. For painted drywall, use Roman PRO-909 VINYL PREP® or similar. For an extra secure stick, you can use a wallpaper adhesive at the very top of the roll to keep the paper secure.
Any mold or mildew on a wall may be an indication of a moisture problem. The mold itself must be removed from the wall and any sources of moisture accumulation must be corrected before proceeding with the installation.
Pressure-sensitive adhesives tend to vary in tack level according to the energy of the surface to which they are applied. On high energy surfaces, like glass or stainless steel, there is an immediate and instant attraction that allows for installation via a brush or felt lined squeegee with minimal pressure.
To install over low energy surfaces like painted drywall or concrete, once the product has been positioned correctly, we recommend the use of a paint sponge roller J-Roller or Straight 3 Section Roller to help apply adequate pressure to the top third of the panel drop as well as all seams. The use of the roller will ensure that sufficient energy is applied to activate the adhesive and secure the fabric to the wall.
The sheets are printed so that there is a quarter inch overlap on each side seam.
To remove this product from the wall, pull one of the top corners from the wall and draw the material down against itself on a 180° angle with at a slow and consistent speed until the panel is completely removed. Proper prior surface preparation should ensure complete removability without any damage to the wall surface.
