SELECTION OF ADHESIVE
In order not to spoil the mural with improper glue, we suggest you familiarize yourself with the following recommendations for his choice:
You can purchase a special glue designed for different types of photo wallpapers.
Buy glue for vinyl wallpaper, which contains antifungal substances, which will prevent the possibility of mold under the finishing material.
Choose a universal adhesive for all types of wallpapers. It can be imported or domestic. The latter will cost you less, and its quality is not worse.
The glue should not have a pungent odor, it should have a high degree of moisture resistance.
Glue is diluted in accordance with the instructions from the manufacturer. The thicker the wallpaper, the thicker the glue you use should be.
Wall murals need to be glued to a dry, previously cleaned and as even surface as possible. If you stick thin wallpapers, then remember that even the smallest tubercle will shine through them. In view of this, before starting gluing, the wall needs to be leveled, primed and puttyed.
Wall murals can not be glued to the wallpaper, even if they are glued very high quality. If you chose a bright image, then before wallpapering, paint the wall with white water-based paint. After it dries, smooth the surface of the wall.
Smooth walls are easy to clean. During the preparatory work, it is important to remove the skirting boards, switches and sockets (de-energize them first). Wallpaper does not adhere well to the wall if there is the slightest draft in the room. Close windows and doors before wallpapering and do not ventilate the room at the end of work another day. The ideal temperature for wallpapering is 20 ° C.
