Beautiful things live long

November 27, 2009

As I was saying in my last blog, the so called problems surrounding wallpapers are all myths. A lot of people think that wallpapers peel off easily and are not long lasting. Well, that’s a pure myth. Wallpapers stays on the walls as long as 7 to 8 years.

There may be only a couple of instances when your wallpaper might peel off. The first time your wallpaper might peel from certain places is within the first week of installation. That happens because different walls have different absorption power. The adhesive used to paste the wallpaper is absorbed by the wall, rendering the wallpaper base dry thus it leaves the wall. There is no need to panic. Even you can put the adhesive and re-paste it. The second time wallpaper might tend to peel is during the first winter after installation. If you have noticed, during winters, doors tend to expand and jam up. The walls too expand during winters, thus making the wallpaper peel. All you need to do is re-paste the peeled off portions.

Apart from these two times wallpapers do not peel off on any occasion. Marshalls has introduced a Permanent Joint Sealer, which is used inside the wallpaper joints. This ensures that the edge of each sheet of wallpaper stays glued to the wall. Good life of wallpapers on a dry wall surface is as long as 7 to 8 years.
