Wall decals are a fun and affordable way to make your home charming and distinctively special. But How long will they last?
Here are a few tips on how to care for your wall decal to ensure they last a lifetime:
- Prep your walls: Before you install your decal, make sure your walls are clean and dry. There are should be dust free. Acrylic painted walls that have cured for at least a month, is the best surface for vinyl wall stickers.
- When applying your wall sticker, make sure to check all the corners and edges, because those areas are the first where your decal might lift. Make sure the entire vinyl stickers is attached flat on the desired surface.
- As with everything else in your home wall decals collect dust over time. Wiping your decal with a clean dry cloth will help maintain the design. However, if you use warm soapy water to clean your wall, you will extend the life of your decal. Be sure to avoid cleaning agents with solvent and bleach, because these will negatively affect the adhesive and colours of your stickers.
- Temperature also affects decals. If decals are exposed to too much heat or direct sunlight for long periods of time, the adhesive will diminish and the colours will fade. Indoor decals last much longer than outdoor decals. If you want to remove a decal use a hair-dryer.
Durability of wall stickers are affected by cleanliness and temperature of its environment. But overall wall decals are a great way to inject life and personality into any space.
Ask your supplier for a higher durability vinyl if you are planning to use your decal outside or on your car. There are outdoor vinyl types.
