Prior to installation the walls should be monitored for potential accumulation of moisture or vapour. Any such accumulation must be eliminated to reduce the risk of mould and mildew growth.

 

Remove old all covering or loose paint completely, and remove any remaining adhesive with a good quality adhesive remover. Rinse the wall and allow to dry completely. Surface must be free of mould, mildew, grease or stains. Walls must then be coated with a latex primer or a finished latex paint coat.

 

Do not install the wall covering in temperatures below 55° F.

SPECIFICATIONS

This wall covering requires the use of a heavy duty wall covering adhesive. Dilution of adhesive is not recommended.

 

Lay the panels out flat and in order being careful not to create any seams or wrinkles. The custom wall covering panels are numbered in order, left to right.

 

Apply the recommended adhesive to the back of the wall covering using either a paint roller or paste machine. Work the adhesive in, covering the back completely, especially near the edges.

Allow the wall covering to relax for approximately 2 minutes. While the panels are relaxing add a thin coat of wall adhesive to the line where the seamed edge will be. This will add extra adhesion and ensure there is no lifting during the double cut process. Be careful not to get any of the adhesive on the face of the wall covering.

 

The wall covering has been printed with a minimum 1” over run on all sides, so ensure the first panel is aligned correctly. Trim excess wallpaper only after ensuring the panels have been hung and aligned as required. The wall mural is a vinyl product and may require some stretching into alignment during installation.

 

Hang the first strip parallel to a plumb line. Use a wall covering brush or plastic smoothing tool to remove air pockets from under the wall covering surface. Wipe any adhesive from the front of the wall covering immediately. Use a cellulose sponge and clean water each time you wipe clean the face of the wall covering. Blot dry with a soft lint free towel.

 

Ensure to inspect the alignment and remove any adhesive from the face of the wall covering after installation of each panel.
