English term or phrase: No stick-on hooks or tape may be applied to walls or furnishings.
Is this saying that stick-on hooks or tape cannot be applied to walls? Or are those the only kind that is allowed?
OR is it the opposite?
OR... maybe... is this too ambiguous?

I think it is a NO-NO because is a list of banned actions. But I’d love to hear the opinion of those whose Englsih is number one, THANK YOU!!
