Thinking of expanding and brightening your room?
Installing a custom-fit glass tabletop can increase the durability of fine furniture pieces.
San Diego glass experts explain what's popular in bathrooms, plus what California contractor license installers need for frameless shower enclosures, mirrors
Could be held on with concealed mirror fasteners (usually a clip or notched "button" design, with very litle showing outside the mirror, or none showing if has trim around it, or with large dabs or swipes of mirror adhesive or liquid nails. The former leaves minimal damage when removed - no more than a heavy duty picture hanger, the latter leaves divots in drywall, as you surmised, and holes in the drywall if a piece of plywood is not used as a prypoint when prying it off.
If you want to try to save the mirrors, then a glass and mirror installer is needed - they can remove them from the hangers, or cut the adhesive with wire saw - though that will add probably 2-3 hours labor per room. Then you would need a painter who also does minor drywall repairs.
If not saving the mirrors, then I suspect you could get a Handyman to pop them off, repair the divots, and repaint. Otherwise, a Painter would probably be glad to do it and repair the damage and repaint - just be prepared for a hefty charge for duct tape - like $100-200, because that is the best way to do this - duct tape the surface completely, pry the mirrors off (commonly breaking them), then cut through the tape to make pieces of glass manageable and of a size to fit in garbage can or box for hauling out. Be sure to emphasize PLYWOOD protection for floors, overlain by canvas or plastic, when removing the mirrors - drop a good sized piece and you have significant flooring damage.
Here is a prior response for a similar situation, including the same suggestions about removal, but also a bunch of ideas of how to leave the mirrors and cover or integrate them - which can be a LOT cheaper than paying a two-man crew for a day to remove mirrors, depending on solution you choose.
this is probably a quarter to full days job to remove depending on how fastened and if saving or not, so about $200-800 range. Drywall repair and painting probably about another $150-250 range, so ballpark numbers - pushing $300-400 if mirrors come off easy (bracketed) or can be scrapped, more like a thousand $ if saving mirrors.
I apologize for my delay. It sounds like you'll need the services of a contracting company. After you've signed in to www.angieslist.com, try searching "Remodeling - General" using the "Search the List" tab in the main green navigation bar.

Your Search the List category is Glass and Mirrors - the Speedy Glass type company that does home and auto glass replacement.
If the glass is held in with window putty (a doughy tan or white putty) or by a wood trim piece all around it pinching it in place, then you can probably fix it yourself for about $15 piece of glass at a glass replacement place or somehome improvement/lumberyards.
If the glass is multiple-pane, or encased in a metal frame, then not easy to do yourself, though in some situations with single-pane you could remove the glass mounting frame entirely, use larger glass, and install with window putty. Double or triple pane you need then to fabricate a new "glazing unit" for you - the glass layers all enclosed in the metal encasing unit.If you are going to pay for that, might as well have them put it in too.

and his helper installed ...MoreRead more of this review a glass shower door in our downstairs bathroom. They arrived late but it wasn't a big deal. W week or so before they came I had changed the finish of the clips from brushed nickel to chrome, but they arrived with the wrong clips. They called the vendor and the vendor had sent the wrong ones even though the paperwork said chrome. I offered to go the office myself and pick up the materials so save time... so that's what happened.
Overall there were a few hiccups but I would definitely use him again. The shower looks great!
My glass turned out to be an odd thickness, and ...MoreRead more of this review the technician made a special trip back to the office to get the correct glass, even though it was after hours. He then patiently spent nearly an hour trying everything he could think of to fit the frame back into my slightly warped window sill. He made it work, because he was concerned and did not want me to have to spend the night with a broken window pane that would allow others access into my home.
I can't stress how pleased I am with the professionalism and service of each person I dealt with in this company. I will consider them first when I replace all the floor to ceiling windows in my 1950's house. Great people to do business with.
She warned me that by ordering a new window rather ...MoreRead more of this review than cleaning, it could take 2-4 weeks before they could install, and it took all of those four weeks.
The window looks great but the reason I gave them a C on Quality above is that after the installer left, I found all the debris from the removal of the old window on the window sill below. No big deal. It took two minutes to clean it. Also found upon closer inspection a lot of smudges on and that was easy to do but (very pleasant man) needs to look a bit closer at his work before he leaves.
It looks so good that now we want to replace the other window in the same room.
