Remove Your Peel and Stick Wall Tiles Without a Trace


The peel and stick Smart Tiles will finally replace the ugly kitchen backsplash that you can’t look at anymore; even if you are not supposed to install anything permanently.


When you leave your apartment, two scenarios are possible:


  1. The Owner will love your new kitchen backsplash and will refund your purchase.
  2. The Owner will love your new kitchen backsplash but will ask you to remove it to leave the apartment in its original condition.


If the second scenario prevails, plan an hour or two before you go to remove the peel and stick tiles.


Follow these simple steps to remove the tiles:


  • Take a blow dryer and warm up each peel and stick tile directly.
  • Warm up long enough to soften the peel and stick tile adhesive.
  • Pull softly starting with the corners.
  • Warm up longer if the tile resists.


The last step is to use a degreaser to wash the wall and remove the excess glue left by the peel and stick tiles.


Backsplash Tiles Are Heat Resistant


There is a huge difference between heat resistance and warming up to soften the peel and stick wall tiles for removal. Smart Tiles will sustain the heat produced by stoves without any problem. This will not make the peel and stick tiles fall off.
