How do I remove mirrors that are stuck on my wall?

These mirrors are huge. There are 3 of them, 2 are about 6'x4' and the other is about 6'x6'. I read that I should use tape but how is it on the wall?

    Cannot imagine there are no mechanical fasteners holding these. Usually there would be a channel at the bottom and top, but can you actually see the mirror edge all the way around?

    Don't know what you mean about using tape to remove them. Assuming you found zero mechanical fasteners, you should try to pass fishing line behind the mirror to cut any adhesive of double-sided tape.

    Please, let us know what you find.

    Mirrors are glued with a very strong adhesive. I hope this video helps, be sure to wear eye protection.

    Its glue on with mirror mastic. Here is the coolist way I've seen but I would add the safety precautions of taping the mirror over the face of it in case it shatters. Wear goggles, leather gloves, and a long sleeved shirt and heavy jeans with heavy shoes on. Have a large cardboard box with the bottom taped well to remove any broken mirror.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FCy2c5-nug
