It's that time of year again: spring cleaning! While you may have your general routine down to an art, you may not be quite as sure how to handle your vinyl decals. Can you clean them? What about taking them down without hurting the wall to make way for new ones? Yes, you can! Here are several essential and helpful spring cleaning tips to keep your home and your decals in tip-top shape.
Washing Walls with Vinyl Decals
All your walls deserve a good scrubbing now and then to rid them of marks. However, this might be worrisome if you have wall decal stickers on them. The good news is, the ink on vinyl wall decals is waterproof, so you don't have to worry about them fading, dripping, or peeling when you clean your walls with water or mild dish soap. However, you intend to use a harsher cleaner on your walls, do your best to avoid getting liquids such as ammonia or vinegar on the decals to keep them fresh and firmly adhered. Additionally, avoid scrubbing near the decals with rough sponges or brushes, as this could damage the edges of the decal.
Removing Vinyl Decals
Is it time to change up your look? You can easily remove our vinyl decals by simply peeling it off the wall or whatever hard surface it's on. However, if you're concerned about the surface beneath the decal and want to loosen the glue before removal, use a hair dryer to heat the adhesive before pulling off the decal.
Preparing Your Space for New Decals
Now that your wall is clean and free of old decals, it's time to get ready for some new designs! Before placing any new decals in that space, you'll want to ensure that the area is clean. A clean space allows the decal to adhere correctly without dirt or oils interfering. You can use a damp sponge and a bit of dish soap to cleanse walls and other surfaces without harming the paint. Make sure that you've cleaned the entire area that your new decal will cover, and allow the surface to dry completely before attempting to add the new decals. If you plan to paint, allow 2 weeks cure time before applying your new wall decal stickers.
