PASTING & HANGING
- We strongly recommend that you hire a professional and experienced wallpaper installer to hang your wallpaper. Read the instructions carefully prior to the installation.
- Paste the wall and not the back of your wallcovering.
- Use a good quality, solvent free, fungicide protected ready mixed wallpaper paste.
- If you are hanging the paper on a newly plastered wall you will need to seal the wall with primer beforehand to prevent the paste from being absorbed, which will cause the paper to shrink.
- Avoid white seams: Make sure that the room is well aired with a constant temperature during application and drying time. Turn off your heating before hanging the wallcovering. Wait 48 hours before turning the heating back on, otherwise the paper could shrink and leaving visible gaps between the panels. Dark wallpapers are known for developing visible white edges where the ends of the paper meet. Prior installation the edges of dark wallpapers should be coloured with a decorator’s crayon of a similar colour when the roll is in its tight form to prevent the paper cut is visible as a white line.
- We recommend pasting the wall to hang one length at a time. Apply the paste evenly to an area slightly wider than the width of the paper.
- Use a decorator's brush to smooth down wallcoverings, working from the centre to the edges to express air bubbles. Never use a spatula, this can scratch the design!
- Avoid stretching the paper and squeezing paste out of the joints.
- Please be aware that paste will damage the surface and print if it comes in contact with it. To avoid any damage on your wallpaper surface make sure that paste does not get onto your brush and keep your hands clean and dry during the installation.
If paste should get in contact with the wallpaper surface, slightly remove it with a clean damp sponge immediately before it dries.
- Please note that site conditions are beyond our control. We can not be held responsible for a faulty hanging of your wallpaper or damage caused by paste.
