Razor knife

Mrs. Escarole wanted a mirror removed from the master bathroom. She had tried to remove it herself but the mirror would not budge. She called my repair service to remove a 48 by 60 inch mirror.

This post shows three steps to remove the tar adhesive from the mirror off the wall. 

Step 1: Above fig.1 and fig.2 shows the mirror has been removed from the wall. Only the black tar adhesive remains.

Step 2: Fig.3 through fig.6 shows a razor knife will be used to remove the adhesive from the wall. Some places the textured part of the wall was removed to remove the tar glue.
