Non-woven wall-covering hanging instructions:
We advise that a professional be used when hanging non-woven wallpaper. The instructions can be found below:
Walls should be dry, clean, and even.
Remove any old wallpaper and loose paint.
Roughen painted surfaces with sandpaper.
For best results, walls should be cross lined using a good quality lining paper. Sizing the lining paper will aid adhesion. Lining should be allowed to dry out completely before hanging the wall covering.
Pasting and hanging your non-woven wall coverings:
This is a paste the wall product. The decorator should paste the wall and not the back of the wall covering.
A good quality, solvent free, fungicide protected ready-mixed ‘tub’ adhesive – specifically for paste the wall non-woven papers should be used.
Paste should be evenly applied to the wall to hang one length at a time, to an area slightly wider than width of the paper.
Butt joints and use a decorator’s brush to smooth down the wall covering, working from the centre to the edges to express air bubbles.
Avoid squeezing paste out of the joints and ensure paste does not get onto the brush or roller.
No paste should be allowed to come into contact with the surface and hands should be kept clean and dry whilst hanging the wall covering.
Paste will damage the surface. The company cannot accept responsibility for marks or damage caused by paste.
Should any paste have been allowed to come into contact with the surface, it should be lightly sponged whilst still moist, using a clean damp sponge.
Wide width wallpapers, grasscloth and textile wall coverings are supplied untrimmed with a 10mm overlap to each edge for double cut on installation. The selvedge edge should be removed with scissors prior to hanging to allow pattern matching. The overlap should be cut through (both drops) with a sharp blade and metal edge at a slight angle (mitre) – use a new blade for each drop as a dull blade will tear the wallpaper. Remove both trimming strips and brush flat (allowing for the angle of the cut) for a perfect join.
