Spray Tips For Wallpaper Jobs
It is useful to use the following tips to grease the paths of the wallpaper. You do not have to follow these tips if you opt for convenience and outsource the paperwork.
On the wallpaper table, lay two jobs upside down. First you rub the first half of the top lane. Then fold the job in half and coat the other half with wallpaper glue.
This way you fold the strips of wallpaper as a kind of harmonica. It is best to start with wallpapering at the top of the wall and keep a few centimeters of overlap. Take a look a vinyl behang.
Wallpaper Walls On The Wall
You start with an overlap at the top and place the wallpaper strip straight down along the perpendicular. Then use the wallpaper brush to sweep the job.
Then press the bottom of the wallpaper with a wallpaper spatula. The excess wallpaper can then be cut off with a knife.
The wallpaper spatula is also useful for creating a fold line for the top. The overlapping part is easy to cut with the wallpaper scissors.

Air Bubbles Behind The Wallpaper
It sometimes happens that large bubbles form behind the wallpaper. Do not panic, because these air bubbles can be removed.
You can smooth out small air bubbles easily. With large air bubbles behind the wallpaper, it is often necessary to puncture them. First try whether you can rub away.
If that is not the case, take a knife and carefully pierce the large bubbles behind the wallpaper.
Finishing Of Wallpaper
Large walls without obstacles are easier to hang than a wall with sockets or window sills. In that case it is advisable to first completely stick the sheet over it.
With a window sill or window with frame it is then easy to cut the wallpaper bit by bit. That gives a better result than cutting the wallpaper to size.
Regarding the finish of wallpaper, there are some tips. For example, to lubricate a loose seam between two webs with some extra wallpaper glue. Then use a seam roller and remove excess glue. For this you use a sponge.

Wallpapering is craftsmanship and our professional wallpaperers do nothing else than wallpapering. Or indeed, because removing wallpaper, wallpapering and then painting is also part of the job.
You have the choice to go for convenience and quality or to waste time and not be sure of the result.
