Pushing the wallpaper on the ceiling, is it just as it seems? Anyone who has at least once made repairs with his own hands, he probably knows that pasting the ceiling with wallpaper process is not easy.
Repair of any surface, as a rule, begins with its preparation. Therefore, it is necessary to clean the old coating from the ceiling. In the event that the coating was whitewashed, then it should be washed off with water and a spray gun, and the remains of the chalk be cleaned with a spatula. If there were wallpaper on the ceiling, then they need to be removed to the stove with the same spatula. Когда поверхность очищена то её следует зашпатлевать, выровнять зачистить до гладкости. The level of leveling will depend on the type of wallpaper you selected, but it is better, of course, so that the surface is perfect. If still small flaws on the ceiling remained, then they should be cleaned, and then go on the ceiling with a special primer, this is necessary for better adhesion to the wallpaper. In the event that the room has damp or a fungus appears, then it is better to use an antiseptic primer to be used for processing. She will help to kill mold and prevent its further manifestation. After the primer dries, you can stick wallpaper.
The surface for pasting is ready, now you need to prepare the necessary tools.
You will need scissors, glue, dishes for breeding glue, roulette, rag, long and high table and, of course, the wallpaper itself.
Usually wallpaper begins to glue in the direction of the window. So, the lines between the stripes will be less noticeable in daylight. It is better to glue wallpaper from the junction between the ceiling and the wall.
But for starters, you should take a roulette and measure the length of the strip, and then cut it off. We put the glue in advance in advance on the ceiling along the width of the strip. We stick one edge, and the second edge is better if someone holds, as well as control the accuracy of the hit between stripes of wallpaper or wall. Then with a dry rag from the glued edge you need to gently smoothed the wallpaper. In this way we glue the entire ceiling.
When the last strip remains, it should be measured not only in length, but also in width. It is advisable to measure the width in two corners of the room, since the walls may not be quite parallel. We cut off all the remaining excess wallpaper with a knife. It is better to do it until the wallpaper has dried. The wallpaper is glued, it remains only to wait for their complete drying.
In conclusion, a couple of sensible tips that will help to avoid trouble:
– The wallpaper is glued only strictly at the junction, the “overlap” in this case is not suitable;
– drafts are unacceptable when gluing and drying the wallpaper;
– All doors and windows should be tightly closed.
Here, perhaps, is all, somewhat useful tips and with this work, you can easily cope on your own.
