When you're ready to remove a mirror from your bathroom wall, there are a few things you'll need to do. First and foremost, you'll want to make sure that the mirror is not attached to any type of adhesive or other materials. If it is, you'll need to use some kind of solvent or other product that will break down those substances.
If the mirror or an LED mirror is not attached to adhesives, then all you have to do is unscrew it from the wall using a screwdriver or wrench. Most mirrors are held in place by about four screws—two on each side of the frame—so don't be surprised if there are more than two holes in your wall!
Consider This Before Hiring Someone Else To Remove Your Mirror From the Bathroom Wall
You might be thinking that this is something that should be left to professionals. But before you run out and hire someone else to do it for you, take a deep breath and consider the following:
- Removing the mirror from the bathroom wall is really not as hard as it seems. It's just a matter of knowing what tools and materials you'll need and having a little patience while you work.
- If you're in an apartment or condo building where there are shared walls or ceilings between apartments/condos, make sure that everyone in your building agrees with your decision before starting any work on the wall. This is especially important if there is any chance that your neighbors will hear noise during the removal or installation of new mirrors.
- Before you begin, make sure that you have all the tools and materials you will need.
- Turn off the electricity at the breaker box especially if you have a bathroom LED mirror like POLARIS LED Mirror with Backlight from Inyouths. This is a safety precaution, as there is a risk of electric shock if you don’t turn off the power. For your own safety, don’t attempt to remove mirrors while they are plugged in or have electricity running through them.
If possible, remove any furniture from the bathroom where you will be working. This will make it easier for you to move around and reach into tight spaces if necessary.
A Step-by-Step Guide to Removing Your Bathroom Mirror
Removing a mirror can be tricky, but it's pretty easy if you follow these steps.
Step 1: Find a friend to help you with removing the mirror from the bathroom wall. This job is easier with two people. If you don't have a friend handy, you can use a hammer and chisel to remove it from the wall. This will take some time and will likely require several trips to the hardware store for new tools as you go, but it should be effective in getting rid of your mirror.
Step 2: Remove anything around the mirror that might fall or get caught under the mirror when it falls (like pictures or frames).
Step 3: Use an adjustable wrench to remove the screws on the bathroom wall where the mirror is mounted. Be careful not to lose any of them!
Step 4: When all of the screws are removed, try lifting up on the top of the frame and pulling gently towards yourself so that you can get some leverage on it. Once it feels loose, lift it off of its mountings and set it aside carefully—you don't want to break anything!
Step 5: If the mirror has a frame like the VEGA Customize LED Mirror with Frame, you'll need to remove the backing so that you can get at the nails holding it in place. This is easiest if you have a pry bar or crowbar.
Step 6: Use your adjustable wrench to remove any nails that are still stuck into the wall and make sure they don't fall behind anything else.
Step 7: If you have any nails left in the wall, use an awl to gently pry them out. This can be a bit tricky, but once you get the hang of it the process goes much faster.
Time to get your mirror cleaned!
Once your mirror is free from its moorings, take it outside and give it a good wash down with soap and water (or whatever cleaning solution works best for your situation). This will help ensure that no dust or dirt remains on the surface of the mirror so that when you bring it back inside, everything looks nice and clean. If you have a large mirror or one that's particularly heavy, you may want to consider enlisting a friend's help in the process of getting it back up on the wall. If not, then make sure that you're very careful when handling your newly cleaned mirror so as not to scratch or break it!
If you're looking to clean a wall-mounted mirror, there are a few different ways that you can go about doing so. The first is to simply use some warm water and soap (or another cleaning solution of your choosing) and wipe down the surface of the mirror in question with a cloth. This should remove any dirt or grime that may be present on its surface, leaving it nice and shiny once again. If this doesn't work for whatever reason, then consider giving the mirror a good scrub with some abrasive materials such as baking soda or salt. These should be able to remove any dirt or grime that may be present on the surface of your mirror and leave it looking like new once again!
