Is WallpaperBuddy™ easy to clean?
Yes! WallpaperBuddy™ is made from high quality aluminium and an adhesive resistant plastic that is recyclable. Both these materials are easy to clean with a damp cloth.
For best results, wipe WallpaperBuddy™ down after use or periodically during use if you see excessive amounts of adhesive forming.
What is the maximum ceiling height I can use WallpaperBuddy™ with?
WallpaperBuddy™ has been designed for use in most domestic houses, therefore it can be used with ceilings up to 11ft or 3.35m.
What is the maximum width wallpaper I can use WallpaperBuddy™ with?
WallpaperBuddy™ was designed to be used with the most commonly manufactured width of wallpaper (20.5 inches/52 cm), but can work with wider rolls of wallpaper also. If your wallpaper is wider than WallpaperBuddy™’s arm, no problem. The paper will hang past the edge of WallpaperBuddy™’s arm and still be held off the wall to make aligning and smoothing a piece of cake.
Note: If you are installing a very wide mural that is significantly wider than WallpaperBuddy™’s arm (24.5 inches/62 cm), you might consider using two WallpaperBuddy™’s side by side to span the full width of the mural.
Can I reuse WallpaperBuddy™ again and again?
Yes! WallpaperBuddy™ is reusable after use, simply wipe it down with a damp cloth, disassemble it and pop it back in the box designed for easy storage.
Do professional decorators need to use WallpaperBuddy™?
WallpaperBuddy™ has been designed to help those new to or inexperienced in wallpapering to learn how to do it quickly and easily. Professional decorators become skilled as they develop techniques that work for them over a long period of time. WallpaperBuddy™ has been designed so that you don’t need to rely on a professional decorator and can save money by undertaking the task yourself.
Do I need to fold the wallpaper when using WallpaperBuddy™?
If you’re installing paste the paper or pre-pasted wallpaper, then yes you will need to book and fold each strip before hanging. If you are installing paste-the-wall wallpaper, then once you have cut the strip to length, we recommend reverse rolling it, so it hangs straight when you let it unravel from the top of the ladder.
