More Issues with Wallpaper in Winter

My last blog was about how nice it is to work up on a ladder when the home’s heating system is on, because most of that heat goes right up to the top of the room.

That same forced-air heat can be problematic, too, however.

If air is extra dry, as it is when coming from the home’s furnace (and sometimes from an air conditioning unit), it can cause newly hung paper to dry too quickly. When paper dries too fast, it can shrink, causing gaps at the seams that expose the white wall beneath. And if the paste dries before it comes in contact with the wall, there may be loose seams or lifting of edges.
