Proper application of the adhesives is important. Note that these command strips if not installed and removed correctly can peel paint off of your wall. However with proper removal there should be no issues. When removing a command strip from behind an installed panel you should pull the pull tab parallel with your wall, it will slowly become thinner and thinner until there is no adhesive left. This is the safest and correct way of removal for these panels. If you pull the tab away from the wall (towards you) then you may have paint peeling.
