Slide a putty knife between the edges of the cork wall tile to separate them. Begin pulling them free of the sheetrock wall. Dispose of the tiles in a garbage bag.
Run a gloved hand roughly over the areas of adhesive that have small pieces of cork tile attached. Sweep the floor and discard the pieces.
Lay a plastic tarp over the floor, directly under the walls you are removing the cork from. Smear on a generous amount of adhesive remover paste and let it sit for the recommended time on the product label.
Scrape the adhesive from the wall with a putty knife once the paste has softened it. Place it in a disposable container and toss it out once the wall is adhesive free.
Wipe the walls down with a warm, damp cloth. Let them dry for an hour before adding any other finish products.
