You’ve decorated your home the way you want and after years of having that wall decal of the Disney characters you cherished so much, you decide it’s time for a change. There’s nothing wrong with that. Nothing is permanent – not even your wall sticker. The problem comes with trying to remove the wall decal without any remnant being left on the wall so you can either replace it with paint or another wall sticker.
Removing Wall Stickers is not as hard as it may seem. In fact it is simple and takes very little time to do. No matter how long one has had a wall sticker in place it can be removed by one of two ways:
1) Heat – If the sticker is on a painted wall or wood surface, simply use a heat source such as a blow dryer and heat the edge of the sticker you are trying to take off. Once it is warm, you can start taking it off slowly. Working too quickly can separate the piece being removed. Remove the sticker up to the point where you feel some resistance then heat the section until it can be removed. Repeat the steps until the wall decal is fully removed.
2) Window Cleaner – If your sticker is on a window or glass use glass cleaner. Spray the glass cleaner on the removable wall sticker and let it sit for a few minutes. The edges will start to come up or bubbles will start to form on parts of the sticker. Remove the areas that you see are lifted or bubbled up. It is likely that the sticker will leave behind some residue or it won’t come off cleanly. If it does not come off cleanly use glass cleaner again and wipe it off or peel it off.
It is understood that no one will stick with their wall decal forever. That is why they are made to be removable. Wall Stickers are ever becoming popular because it makes it easy and simple to design your home the way you want it to be designed. With many to choose from, the possibilities are endless. Don’t hesitate to buy a removable wall decal. There are great designs and they look good in any room.
