What & Why

There are many reasons why you should take the preventive steps.
1) In case you apply the new wallpaper on the older one, you may lack the smoothness and a good finishing.

2) In case the walls is wet or have some cracks, the glue may not stick well and also may lead to air bubbles between the surfaces, leaving an uneven look.

3) Painting or using primer will make the difference between an excellent installation and no seams-popping or coming apart.

4) Turning off the electricity ensures your safety and prevents shocks and short circuits.

We suggest

• Wet the wallpaper completely if it’s pre-pasted. Keep the paper in water bath to soak it.

• In case you are using non-prepasted paper, make sure to cover the entire length of the paper with adhesive by laying the paper on a long flat surface.

• Use plumb line on the wall before you start pasting the paper on the wall.

• Always let primer dry overnight before installing your new wallpaper.
