Classic Wallpaper is washable with a sponge and clear water.
The printing of our different types of paper is protected by a coating that prevents surface moisture from penetrating the thickness of the paper.
It is therefore necessary to avoid excess water, run-off, stagnation or cleaning with a sponge that is too wet.
It is important that the moisture remains on the surface, if the paper is wet in the thickness it must be allowed to dry before rubbing, the risk would be to remove the ink from the paper.
Avoid rubbing too hard or with an abrasive sponge in order not to damage the print.
Also, do not use detergent or solvent to clean the decor. If in doubt about cleaning, contact us.

Installation of the decor
Preparation and control of the panels before installation
Pre-cut strips ready to install
These panels are cut and joined to the dimensions indicated and in the quantities specified on your order. They are generally classified in order (reference of the panels on the back or at the bottom according to production for non-repetitive patterns or particular compositions) and packaged in a single roll.
Check that you have all the panels, that the joints are correct, that the height and other aspects (paper, color, etc.) are in accordance with your request before starting the installation.
Paper from rolls, regardless of its length, requires preparation. It is necessary to cut strips adapted to the wall and to manage the connection of the pattern between each strip before the installation.
Check that the rolls conform to your request (length, width, pattern, color, paper type, etc.) before starting the installation.
Installation of the wallpaper
Prepare the glue (for woven paper) by respecting the dosage and the time of activation of this one, generally indicated on the pot of the manufacturer.
Make sure to center the strips on the wall, do not start with a whole strip if you have to have a small strip at the end of the wall; it is better to distribute the width to be covered between the first and the last strip in order to have a more balanced decoration.
We recommend starting with the second panel for your wall.
Using a plumb line or level, determine the vertical for the first panel, avoiding the wall angle if there is one, as it may not be completely straight.
We recommend marking with a pencil to ensure the verticality of the first panel, but these marks can be seen through the window, so avoid using thick or greasy pencils and check any marks before installation to remove them if necessary.
Using the pasting brush, apply the glue on the back of the wallpaper, on half a strip to start with. Fold the end of the strip in the middle, glue against glue, taking care not to crush the fold formed. Carry out the same operation for the second half of the wallpaper (remember to clean your table between gluing if necessary).
Leave the paper to soak for 5 minutes to avoid blistering (the thicker the paper, the longer the soaking time). You can also place the strip in a plastic bag while it is soaking to prevent it from drying too quickly.
Unfold the first half of the strip and position it at the top of the wall, keeping a 5 cm margin in height to prevent any differences in height.
Adjust the strip while leaving the lower part of the strip folded on itself, and roll it up using the brush or the flat of your hand: rolling up consists of driving the air bubbles from the center to the edges and obtaining a strip that is perfectly stuck to the support.
Unfold the second half of the strip, adjust it and then roll it up again.
Then repeat the different steps with the following panels.
Cut the excess paper with a ruler and a cutter once the glue is dry (about 24 hours).
