Can wall decals really be used more than once? Some may say the adhesive material on the wall decal will lose its stickiness overtime. To some extent yes, but it is possible to reuse wall decals. Most wall decals can be used again whether you’ve applied them once (and sometimes more than once) before.
People want to still be able to use their wall decals without having to go buy another one. You may want to redecorate a certain room in the house while others want to repaint a wall in their house. Perhaps you would like to store their wall decals for another time–or maybe you’re moving. Whatever the reason may be that you want to reuse your wall decal, you can reuse most wall decals instead of having to throw away money to buy another.
Here are a few steps to help you remove your wall decals without ruining them:
Step 1: If you happened to put your wall decal on a smooth surface wall and it doesn’t seem to come off easily, don’t panic. Just take a heat gun or hairdryer to help release the glue. When heat is applied, it allows the wall decal to fall of the wall or come off easily. So apply the heat to the part of the decal you’re wanting to start peeling to get the decal removal started.
Step 2: Once the wall decal is warm to the touch, carefully take lift a corner of the wall decal up. The wall decal should begin to peel off smooth without any problems. If the wall decal seems to give you any problems during this process, apply more heat.
Step 3: You can then use a hot soapy rag to wipe the area of where the wall decal was. Sometimes, although it’s rare, if you have an extra strong adhesive on your decal, it can take off paint. So be extra careful when removing the wall decal from the wall. If you notice paint coming off, then just repaint the area.
There are a few simple steps to follow when reapplying a wall decal:
Step 1: Clean the wall with a hot soapy rag before applying the wall decal.
Step 2: Dry the area with a paper towel.
Helpful Hint: While in between cleaning your wall, and applying the wall decal, you are more than welcome to take a lint roller and collect any debris on the back of the wall decal. This might help allow the wall decal to stick better. Now if at any time, you are thinking about wanting to take your wall decal down and use it in another room or for another time, you can.
Step 3: Then after the wall is clean and clear, carefully with your index finger and thumb place the wall decal on the wall. Gently smooth out the wall decal with your hand to make sure it is placed on the wall secured.
