Frequently Asked Questions
What should I do if my Schedwall arrives and looks wrinkled?
If it arrives slightly separated from the backer sheet (bumps, bubbles and long air pockets) worry not! When you unroll your Schedwall you may see some areas where the adhesive portion has separated from the removable backer sheet. This is entirely normal and happens with all products like ours in transit. Simply unroll it carefully and let it rest of a flat surface without pressing on the air pockets. Do not press down on those air pockets or bumps to try and physically smooth them out because you could accidentally crease Schedwall’s surface. Let it sit while you find the smooth wall or you’ll be attaching to it to give that wall or surface a light wipedown with a dry cloth to remove dust or particles. The bubbles and air pockets will be gone the moment you peel Schedwall off its backer paper.
How should I apply it to the wall?
Dry application (typical): Find a smooth, indoor surface to apply it to. Gently clean the surface, then dry it off well. Lightly drape the top corners onto the wall, then assess if it needs leveling. Once straightened, then use a cloth to press it down in the middle from top to bottom, then through the middle side to side. Lastly, smooth it out from the middle out to the edges, until fully applied to the wall.
Wet application: If applying it to a super smooth surface (glass, metal, plastic), first, clean your surface very well. The smoother the surface, the cleaner you’ll want it to be. Spray a bit of water on your placement area, lay it down
What should I do if I notice a bubble in the middle of my Schedwall after applying it?
Don’t panic! Just slowly peel back one side/corner of the Schedwall, being careful not to stick the adhesive sides together. Once you peel it back to the bubble, use a cloth to smooth it back onto the wall working slowly from the inside outward.
Will there be any damages once the Schedwall is removed?
Nope! As long as your paint isn’t super old and brittle, you should be all set. And you certainly don’t want to place your Schedwall over a freshly painted wall, nor a stain release paint (pretty rare but it’s a paint that doesn’t allow things to stick to the wall).
Will Schedwall damage my wall?
Schedwall is designed with a low-tack adhesive backing - it’s repositionable. We’ve tested our Schedwalls on many different walls and surfaces over the last year, and have yet to see any trace of wall damage. The only issue you may have is a light “halo” around the border of the Schedwall from smearing your dry-erase marker onto the wall while wiping it off. This can be avoided by carefully wiping off your Schedwall each week or by using a “Magic Eraser” and a bit of water to remove any “halo” around the edge. Occasionally, Jean and I will take a Clorox wipe to our Schedwall, as well as the wall space around it just to keep everything clean and bright.
If I decide to remove my Schedwall, how should I do it?
We recommend grabbing one corner and peeling it back at a direction away from the wall at a slow and even pace.
What type of markers should I use on my Schedwall?
You can use pretty much any dry-erase marker on your Schedwall.
What if I accidentally write on my Schedwall in a permanent marker?
Permanent marker should come off of our product easily if you use rubbing alcohol. The earlier you remove it, the better!
How do I keep my Schedwall white?
If you leave your writing on the board for an extended period of time, a simple mist of water will help clean it right off. If something’s not erasing, there could be something greasy stuck on the Schedwall - in that case, rubbing alcohol would be helpful in cleaning it off.
Can I move my Schedwall to a different location after applying it?
We recommend choosing one place to put your Schedwall, then sticking with it. ;) However, it is possible to remove it and reposition it, if it was recently applied. But be warned, if you move it around too much, it may become slightly less sticky, just as a sticker would if you applied it and peeled it off a surface over and over again.
