HOW TO REMOVE STAINS FROM WALLS

You sweep your floors and vacuum your carpets on a regular basis, but when was the last time you cleaned the walls? Given how frequently we lean on and touch our walls on a daily basis, keeping them clean is equally as essential as keeping other household surfaces clean. Furthermore, stains, scratches, shoe scuffs, and dust can collect on painted walls over time, giving the surface a drab, filthy appearance. Plan to wash down your walls on a frequent basis to keep that freshly painted look. Scrubbing walls with diverse paint kinds and finishes, on the other hand, necessitates extra caution. Before you add this task to your regular cleaning routine, read our advice on how to clean walls without damaging paint.

How to Clean Painted Walls

When cleaning painted walls, the first thing to consider is the finish. If necessary, see useful guide to paint finishes. The appearance of the wall will be affected by cleaning depending on whether the finish is glossy or flat.

When it comes to cleaning, flat, satin, and eggshell finishes are less durable. When cleaning flat painted walls, avoid using strong chemicals or degreasers. When cleaning with a sponge, avoid scrubbing too aggressively. Before applying the sponge to the walls, it should be almost fully wrung out.
