Mabruk! Although Irada Arts are easy to apply, reading the instructions will save you time and potential errors.How easy is it to install Irada Arts?
With step-by-step instructions, Irada Arts are fairly easy to install. Note: Some of the larger Irada Arts come in sections that will seamlessly overlap during installation. Irada Arts that are larger in size are easier to install with assistance from another person.How long can I store my Irada Art? Do they ever expire or " go bad" ?
For the best results, we strongly recommend that you apply your wall decals quickly (within one week of receipt) but they can last several months if kept in their original packaging in a room that doesn't fall below freezing. Once wall decals have been applied, they usually last for several years, depending on the environment where they are applied.Will Irada Arts work on all walls?
Unfortunately, Irada Arts do not accommodate all types of walls. Irada Arts are meant for flat, smooth surfaces. If your wall is rough, bumpy, or newly painted, Irada Arts are difficult to apply and may not adhere properly. However, many customers do occasionally report success with slightly textured walls but we would advise against it. Irada Arts is not responsible if the art was applied to a bumpy texture and does not adhere properly. Please consider your wall type before placing an order.What other surfaces can Irada Arts be applied to?
Irada Arts can be applied to other smooth surfaces such as ceilings, glass, sealed concrete floors, smooth metal, tile, plastic surfaces and finished wood furniture. Keep in mind that the less porous the surface, the more effort it will take to remove it.Are there surfaces for which Irada Art is NOT recommended?
Irada Arts are not recommended for textured surfaces like stucco. Not only will the Irada Art not stick, but also a rough texture will most likely puncture the Irada Arts. Irada Arts will also not adhere to fibrous materials (fabric), not even unpainted canvas. You can apply Irada Arts to paper-based materials but we do not recommend it unless you want a permanent application. Irada Arts are not removable from paper or wallpaper. However, since wallpaper can vary widely in texture and quality, Irada Arts can be applied to certain types of wallpaper. Please contact us for more information.I recently painted my walls, how long should I wait before I apply my new Irada Art?
We recommend that you wait 2–3 weeks before applying your Irada Art, with a bare minimum of 1 week. This allows enough time for the surface to completely cure, thus allowing the Irada Art to stick better. If applied too soon, the Irada Art will either have trouble adhering to the wall or it will dry with the paint and when removed, paint may come off.Do Irada Arts adhere to all paints?
Irada Arts install easily on most common types of home interior paints, such as latex- and oil-based paints. They will also work on other paints, though some highly textured paints or paints with additives (e.g. faux, magnetic, sand, and suede paints) can make application extremely difficult. Alos, many brands of new Eco-paint don't allow decals to stick on them. If you are not sure, contact us to confirm that your Irada Arts product is compatible with your walls.Can you put Irada Arts in the bedroom?
You may do this as long as there are no sacred texts in the bedroom. Scholars mention that because of the private nature of a bedroom, sacred texts (e.g. Quran, hadith, any of Allah’s names) should not be placed there out of respect and reverence.Can you put Irada in the bathroom?
Firstly, Arabic letters and/or sacred texts are absolutely prohibited in bathrooms. For artwork other than these, e.g. ornaments, they can be applied in a non-humid, dry condition, Irada Arts can withstand the heat and humidity generated in a bathroom environment. However, please be aware that prolonged exposure to heat and humidity will weaken the adhesive over time. If you do decide to apply Irada Arts in your bathroom, you should do so when the bathroom is completely dry and will remain dry thereafter for several days. We do not recommend applying Irada Arts in bathrooms due to the humidity that accumulates there.Can Irada Arts be used outdoors?
Yes, Irada Arts can be used outdoors. Make sure the surface is clean, dry and free of dirt and debris. Some examples of successful applications are automobiles; exterior windows and doors of homes; exterior home decorations, such as treated boards or metal objects like mailboxes; exterior signs; and so on. However, when applied to exterior surfaces, expect a shortened product life due to exposure to weather and other elements. If you intend to use some for outdoor use we recommend you submit a customization request so that we can prepare your order with material that is better suited to handle the outdoor elements.Can Irada Arts be applied on my car?
Yes, but keep in mind that Irada Arts are scaled for walls and not cars. Also, cars get pretty dirty and this will effect how your Irada Art looks. For this and other reasons, we do not recommend applying Irada Arts to your car. Irada Arts is not responsible for any damage that may occur.Are Irada Arts safe for apartment walls, dorm room walls, or rented halls?
Yes, Irada Art will work for apartments, dorm rooms, and rented halls (for weddings, receptions, parties, events, etc) as Irada Arts can be used for temporary occasions or more permanent ones. This will work as long as the surface is smooth and hard: a general recommended list of surfaces been mentioned previously.If my walls are too textured, what other options do I have for displaying my wall decal?
If you have heavily-textured walls, you can choose from many options to display your Irada Art. For example, you can install the Irada Art on a flat, smooth surface that you can hang on your wall such as a board, glass, or a mirror. You can also display Irada Arts on tiles, metal, and blocks, among other surfaces.During ApplicationMy Irada Arts won’t stick! What do I do?READ
– Carefully read our application instructions: contact us prior to installation to make sure that all criteria are met. Be sure that the walls or surfaces you are using are clean, dry, and haven't been freshly painted or otherwise sealed. If your Irada Art isn’t sticking, try wiping down the wall or surface with a dry cloth, then try again.NO HUMIDITY
– Avoid applying the Irada Art when the climate is very humid, this will make it very difficult to release the art from the transfer tape.NO RESIDUE
– Make sure there is no residue on a wall surface such as grease, smoke, or soot.NO MOISTURE
– Make sure there is no moisture on the surface before applying the Irada Art. Often, a wall surface feels dry to the touch but moisture has been absorbed into the wall material beneath. This moisture is released onto the surface as the wall continues to dry, breaking the adhesive bond and pushing the Irada Art off the surface. Wipe the wall and wait until the wall is completely dry.ROOM TEMPERATURE
– Make sure the surface and wall decal is at room temperature. If a surface is too cold, it may not stick properly. Gradually heat it to room temperature with a blow dryer on low setting.NOTE
: Please be careful to not overheat the Irada Art or the wall, as this will disfigure the art and damage the wall.CONTACT US
– If your Irada Art is still falling off the wall, and you feel that you followed the instructions correctly, contact us and we will help you out as much as possible.After ApplicationI installed a wall decal but it is starting to peel off. What do I do?
If part of the Irada Art starts to come off a surface, use washable glue, such as a glue stick or wallpaper paste or glue, to reattach it.Can I clean my Irada Art?
Yes. We recommend that you use a soft cloth or sponge dampened with cool water to clean your wall decal. Avoid using cleaners that contain alcohol, abrasives, citrus additives, or ammonias.
Remember, however, that many of the Irada Arts are Arabic and/or from sacred texts, making them sacred. As such, care and respect should be taken when handling or cleaning them.How do I remove my Irada Art? Are Irada Arts easy to remove?
Removal is easy. Peel up an edge with your fingernail and slowly peel the Irada Art off the wall. If you’ve applied Irada Art to a less porous surface like glass or if it has been applied for a long time, we recommend that you use a hairdryer (set on low heat) to warm the Irada Art. This releases the adhesive and makes it even easier to peel off. Use care to avoid damage and overheating the wall.IMPORTANT NOTE:
When removing Arabic letters and/or sacred texts, handle with care and respect. Before you throw them away in the garbage, with a pair of scissors, you must cut the letters apart. In doing so – according to the Sacred Law (Sharia) – they are not considered Arabic nor sacred and can be disposed of.Will my Irada Art leave a residue when removed? Or take off the paint with it?
No, Irada Arts shouldn’t leave any residue on your wall when removed. However, several factors can affect this and since we cannot guarantee the condition of all wall surfaces, we cannot say across the board that some paint flecking will not occur. You may notice paint flecks on the back of the decals when removed and some minor paint touch-up may be required. Irada Arts is not responsible for any damage that occurs.Can I reuse Irada Arts after I take them off the wall?
Because of the high quality of the material that we use, Irada Arts are not reusable. They will still retain their 'stickiness;' However, because the material is so thin (and quite often so detailed), Irada Arts do not retain their shape or design once removed from their surface.
Note: If you do remove Irada Arts because you are moving homes or apartments, we will replace the same exact Irada Art at a 50% discount of the retail price is (regular shipping charges will be applied).Return and Exchange PoliciesDo you take returns?
