Command hooks are intended for smooth surfaces. You're not going to be able to use them sucessfully on textured walls.
I don't know what you want to hang I've used the hooks shown below if I wanted to hang a lot of weight. I've boght them, it seems like at the drug store. They're known as Money Hooks. I found a link on line, https://monkeyhook.com/
If you just want to hang a hook for clothes. I'd just go ahead and hang whatever you want and cover the holes with white toothpaste when you leave !!!
I'm starting my Ms K Ghetto Fabulous Lifestyle Decor, Fashion and Foodie. Now And new to empty nesting the weather changes isn't helping my episodes of Bipolar 1 , PTSD, Anxiety and Depression for I'm truly an overprotective Momma 🐻 . This picture is of the textured beam in my apt home and been renting for over five years the command hooks are upside down to hold up my grommet curtain as a combination privacy and weather aid in aid saving money electricity bill without a rod. Anyway to answer your great question is obviously application and time for the adhesive to cure for it to stay stuck to the surface. Plus paying attention to the weight of the item is the most important choice and purchasing hooks that is made for at least two pounds heavier on each individual hook. Simply don't repaint just clean each section with ordinary rubbing alcohol from the $ store and use like I did on my older walls let dry. Wear an apron with two pockets put in the ruler, pencil and hooks in one pocket and the adhesive strips in the other pocket. My step stool can hold 500 pounds of first my first hook cut in one inch from the wall to place the first hook up placed the adhesive strip onto the hook counted about 30 secs for it to stick removed the other side put it on the first space pressed it very hard for about an one or two mins, sat down to collect my thoughts and measured the space between the grommets, mine being 8" got back on step stool and marked six" between the first and second hook, repeated until all 8 up and waiting the 60 minutes plus for it stick before putting on the curtain. Hopefully that'll help you out and saw it done on YouTube and decided to try the strips are Hyper Tough Brand sold at my local Walmart saved about .75 cents.
