Prepare the area around the wall you want to clean. Remove any furniture or decorative items that might get in the way.


Ready the area

Begin by removing dust and debris from the area on the wall. Use a soft-bristle brush or a cloth to gently dust the surface. For high or hard-to-reach areas, use a clean, dry mop or a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment.


Warm water and sponge

Painted surfaces can be cleaned with a soft cloth or sponge and water, do not use abrasive or micro-fibre cloths. Avoid excessive rubbing as this may leave a visible mark when dry. The use of harsh detergents to remove stains is not recommended.

Cleaning the Walls

Clean the Walls

Gently wipe the walls or specific areas using a circular motion for stubborn spots. Avoid excessive scrubbing, as this could damage the paint. Rinse the cloth or sponge frequently to prevent dirt build up.


Dry the Walls

Use clean, dry towels to thoroughly dry the walls. This step is important to prevent streaking or water spots.
