Wallpapering has come a long way since it was first used, thank goodness! Now we have paper that is easier to put up and take down.

Howver, makers haven't yet found a way to prevent peeling, bubbling and a few other issues that us paperhangers have to deal with. Here are a few tips that can help you correct some of these pesky paper problems.

• Loose and peeling edges probably are the most common issue. If you can carefully remove any of the old adhesive from the back side of the paper and the wall, do so. Sometimes a razor can help you do this. Just don't cut or tear the paper. Then, use a small paintbrush to apply more wallpaper paste to both surfaces and press it back into place. Use a seam roller for better contact and adhesion.

• An air bubble is easy to fix. Just fill a syringe with wallpaper adhesive and puncture the bubble with the needle and squirt a little adhesive into the space. Then use a seam roller to push it back into place.

• Cleaning wallpaper is a little more difficult and depends upon the type of paper it is. Dust it to remove any loose dirt. Use a damp sponge in an inconspicuous place. If it doesn't stain the paper, then use it where the dirt is. A Magic Eraser is a great tool, used carefully, to remove dirt.

• Small tears can be glued back into place if the paper is still there. Just use wallpaper adhesive and a seam roller to press it back into place.
