2.   Do Wall Murals Require Permits?

In Rockville, all commercial signs require a sign permit, although certain wall murals may be exempt depending on size and placement. If you need help applying for a permit or variance, or you’d like to circumvent the entire process with a smaller, temporary, indoor option, get in touch with our team.

3.   How Should I Prepare To Install My Custom Wall Mural?

Wall preparation is an important step in the installation process. Generally speaking, we recommend:

  • Removing any old wallcovering
  • Removing any flaking paint
  • Repairing any defects/holes in the wall before your installation
  • Removing picture hooks, light fixtures, switch plates, and outlet plates
  • Removing old paste, grease, and dirt by cleaning with a mild detergent solution
  • Painting the wall if necessary

Much of the preparation can be cut out by selecting the right wall space, but sometimes the perfect display site isn’t in perfect condition. If your ideal display site needs some work, and you don’t have the time or tools to do it, don’t worry—we offer full installation support!

4.   How Do I Maintain My Custom Wall Murals?

Most maintenance boils down to a quick dusting or rinse and dry whenever your wall mural appears dirty. For more stubborn stains, you can use a mild detergent solution and a non-abrasive sponge or brush. Go easy and avoid any harsh cleaners or wax, as this can harm the finish and adhesive.

5.   Where Should I Install Custom Wall Murals?

Where you display your wall mural will depend on your unique goals, but wherever it ends up, make sure that you:

  • Choose a flat, non-porous surface for your installation
  • Do not apply your wall mural to sheetrock or concrete without a wallpaper liner or coat of flat paint
  • Do not apply your wall mural to cinder blocks, brick, paneling, heavily textured walls, or slick wall surfaces
  • Make sure the wall mural’s intended substrate does not get too hot or too cold during the day
  • Avoid areas where your wall mural will receive a lot of wear-and-tear
