Our commercial and technical department, experienced and rigorous, offers support and assistance throughout the installation, necessary for the smooth running of the activities.
We also offer a guarantee at the end of the work, guaranteeing an impeccable continuity in time.
With a team of about 20 people, each worker is trained at a large institution and has all the necessary aggregations for the proper installation of the wallcovering. Our installation capacity is between 500 and 1000m² per day depending on the staff available.
Our specialized workers are recognized throughout Europe for having carried out mainly major hotel projects.
1) Preparation of Wallcovering Goods:
Examine all wallcovering to assure that pattern, color, quantity and quality is as ordered. Separate wallcovering by shade lot number and organize in roll number sequence, starting with highest number down or lowest number up.
2) Preparation of Surface Prior to Installation of Commercial Vinyl Wallcoverings:
Surfaces to receive vinyl wallcoverings, dry erase, marker board, white board, green Wallpaper, wall protection, and digital mural applications, must be clean, smooth, dry and structurally sound. Loose paint or other wall coverings must be removed. To ensure maximum smoothness of a quality wallcovering installation, nail heads, nicks, gouges, and other surface imperfections should be spackled, sanded smooth, and sealed with primer. On new walls, drywall joints you must tape, bed, and sand smooth prior to any wallcovering installation.
Walls should be checked with a suitable "moisture meter". Moisture content should not exceed five percent. Remove any mildew from walls with diluted bleach mixture and treat surfaces to inhibit further mildew growth prior to any wallcovering installation.
Vinyl wallcoverings, dry erase, marker board, white board, green wallpaper for walls, and commercial murals can be installed on almost any surface which has been properly prepared. Do not install vinyl wallpaper, vinyl wallcoverings, dry erase, marker board, white board, green wallpaper for walls, custom wallpaper, wall protection, and commercial murals, over ballpoint pen writing, wax crayon, ink marker, oil-based stains or any foreign matter that may bleed through the contract wallcovering. We suggest that you use a lead pencil to mark any designer wallcovering as pencil marks will not bleed through the textured wallcovering.
You must sand Glossy surfaces to dull the surface and then apply an oil-based primer or Professional Heavy Duty Primer prior to any installation of any commercial wallcoverings.
3) Application of Wall Covering for Commercial and Residential Interiors:
Before installing any vinyl wallcovering, dry erase, commercial mural, or textured wallpaper, examine the pattern for color uniformity, and repeat in design. Some wallpaper collections and patterns should be registered or reversed, depending on the textured wallcovering and color, in order to ensure color uniformity. Only full widths of wallcovering material should be used for the most satisfactory installation. All wallcovering material must be installed in roll sequence (numerical) within a shade lot starting with the highest number first and going in decreasing order, with each wallcovering strip in sequence as cut from the roll.
For reversible patterns, every other strip of the wall covering should be reversed (hang top to bottom and on the next strip reverse bottom to top) to insure color uniformity. Headers can cause unsatisfactory shading if hung out of sequence. The wall covering is pre-trimmed and much of it can be butt-seamed. Overlapping, double-cutting and pre-trimming both have advantages in making acceptable seams. Do not "score" dry wall when double cutting to create the wallcovering seam.
4) Characteristics and Variables of Commercial Wallcoverings:
As with all vinyl wallcoverings, certain deeply embossed textured wallcoverings, or non-design print patterns will provide a more satisfactory seam if a two to three inch selvage cut is taken from each side of the wallcovering sheet. When installing wallcovering materials it is best to observe from a distance the first three sheets hung before continuing. This will indicate whether or not a deeper "cut-back" is in order. Apply an even coat of adhesive to the fabric side of the wallcovering material using a stiff bristle brush, roller or pasting machine in accordance with wallcovering installers experience and recommendations. The wallcovering should be applied to the wall as soon as the adhesive has become tacky. Smooth the wallcovering surface, working out the air bubbles as you go. As each strip is installed, immediately remove excess adhesive from the wall covering surface and seams using a natural sponge and a soft bristle brush frequently rinsed in clean warm water. Dry with clean cloth or professional vinyl cleaner.
5) Hanging WallCovering Over ExistingWall covering:
While we know that many customers install new wallcovering over existing wall covering, We not recommend this practice. We suggest that the old wall covering be removed first before installing new vinyl wall covering.
6) Hanging WallCovering Over Painted Wallcovering:
It`s not recommend either painting over vinyl wall covering or hanging additional layers of vinyl wall covering over existing vinyl wall covering.
Vinyl wallcovering is treated with a clear water base coating. This coating aids in the stain resistance and easy cleaning of wall covering in an environmentally safe manner. However, any dirt smudges or stains should be removed as quickly as possible to eliminate a possible reaction between the contaminant and the wallcovering. Reaction time is especially important for removing stains such as ink, paint, lipstick, oils, etc., as these materials will dry and be difficult to remove.
Materials, such as chewing gum, crayon and paint should be scraped off the wallcovering prior to other cleaning attempts.
Normal cleaning should be done with mild ingredients such as soap detergent and water or liquid household cleaner such as "Lestiol" or "Windex". If the stain still persists, try "Goo-Be-Gone" or "Goof-Off". As with all stain removal, one should evaluate the cleaner in an inconspicuous location using a natural sponge with a textured surface. With difficult to remove deposits, a soft bristle brush is recommended to clean. Always rinse thoroughly with clean water changing water often so that it remains clean and clear. After cleaning an area, be sure to dry with an absorbent cloth so the affected area can be examined to assure complete cleaning. Always remember to read all labeled precautions when using any cleaning agents. Repeated use of cleaners on vinyl wallcoverings will cause wall covering to lose its luster.
