I'm Joshua Clement with Lighty Contractors, and today I'm going to show you how to properly remove adhesive from painted walls. Now, duct tape can be a very very handy thing but one of the problems with duct tape is, it leaves this nasty, nasty stuff on the wall. I want to show you how to very easily remove it with no chemicals. For this, you're going to need a couple tools. I'm going to use a hairdryer on low heat. If you do it too high, you're going to bubble the paint off the walls. We're also going to use 5 in 1. Now, you're going to take the dryer and you're going to go over the surface area for around 30 seconds. Now while it's still warm, take your 5 in 1 or putty knife and gently scratch it off. Now, the reason that we used heat is because it loosens up that glue that's stuck on the wall and the 5 in 1 kind of scrapes it off. You might have to use just a dry rag to help wipe it off but that's all there is to it. Be sure that when you use the 5 in 1 or putty knife that you don't gouge the wall because then you're going to have a lot bigger job. I'm Joshua Clement with Lighty Contractors, and that's how you can properly remove adhesive from the wall.
