Q: Where can I apply RoomMates removable wall decals?
A: RoomMates wall decals work
on any smooth, dry and clean surface: walls, mirrors, refrigerators,
laptop covers, tiles, glass, lockers,
furniture, accessories, etc.. even automotive surfaces!
Painted wall tips:
Prior to applying decals onto painted walls: clean wall and make sure it is dry. Newly painted walls:
recommended to let the paint cure for 10 to 15 days prior to
applying decals. Even if new paint feels dry, it may still need to
completely cure. Not recommended on
Peel textured walls .
cinder blocks or very textured and porous surfaces.
wallpaper or delicate surfaces.
RoomMates wall decals can be applied onto
tiles as long as surface is clean and completely dry during installation.
Make sure the design element does not overlap grout area as water could
filter under and compromise the adhesive. RoomMates can be applied onto
shower walls, as long as they are placed tightly onto the surface so water
cannot reach under the design element. Once applied, RoomMates will not
move even if sprayed by shower.
items in dishwater or microwave or place RoomMates over rugs,
fabrics and any other textiles. Textile fibers may stick to the adhesive
and ruin the product.
place at the bottom or
inside the tub. Water could filter beneath the design element too easily
and would compromise the adhesive.
In all applications, it is always best to test
RoomMates in an inconspicuous area. If the surface is textured, performance
could be seriously diminished. Make sure surface is clean of dust and dirt or
you may compromise the adhesive and ruin the product.
Q: How can I apply RoomMates removable wall decals on wallpaper?
Start by installing your wallpaper and letting it dry for at least two weeks per manufacturer’s instructions. Before applying wall decals you need to
make sure the wallpaper is completely dry and the adhesive is fully
cured so that you do not damage your brand new beautiful wallpaper. In
order to do this try applying a small wall decal in a hidden area,
waiting 1-2 days, and then removing the test decal. Examine both the
area and the back of the decal for any signs of damage or adhesive
ineffectiveness. This process is best done in an area that will not
normally be seen—behind furniture or in a corner.
If your test decal removes cleanly, you can safely apply the rest of
the wall decals, borders and growth charts to your wallpaper. Your
design theme can include a part of a wall, a full room, or anything in between.
Q: How do I remove air bubbles?
A: When applying, make sure you start
from one side (for the border) or the top
(for the decal) of each element. Keep the rest of the element away from
wall/surface. Slowly go down over the design with your hand and smooth
element onto surface (and press the bubbles out as you go). Once applied
should be able to move any remaining bubbles out by pressing/smoothing
of the element. If the problem persists (this would only happen with the
giant wall decals), you can punch a tiny (invisible to the eye) hole
with a pin to push
the air out.
Q: Can I re-use RoomMates months later?
A: Even years! Simply replace the design elements onto the liner/backer and
keep your RoomMates in a dust free and room temperature environment. You can
reapply them for the next season. Or better yet - check out the new designs!
Decorating with RoomMates is so easy and affordable that you can change your
decor as often as you wish!
