Has your vinyl window graphic’s life come to an end? When it comes time to remove the design, the graphic could be a bit stubborn, which is a testament to how well it was installed. Follow these tips to make the process as easy and quick as possible:
Lifting up the edges will likely require some tools. Find a plastic razor blade or something similar to help with the process. After it’s off, there might be some adhesive residue on the window. Purchase a cleaner that is formulated for tackling adhesive residue.
Loosen the Graphic
If the vinyl has been on the window for a long time, it can be brittle and could come off in small pieces. Use a heat gun or hair dryer to loosen its grip from the window. This will make the vinyl graphic more pliable and easier to remove in larger pieces.
Peel and Scrape
Once loosened, use the plastic razor blade to lift up the edges and begin peeling the graphic off of the window. Once this is started, it should be easy to peel it completely off.
Use the residue cleaner to get as much of the adhesive off as possible. It might take some time and elbow grease, but eventually all of the residue will come off.
Clean the Window
After all that work, there’s likely to be some smudges and fingerprints. Use a window cleaning solution to get rid of any remaining smudges. Now it’s ready for another window graphic to be applied!
