6 steps to clean white walls to restore whiteness as new
If a worker wants to do well, he must first sharpen his tools. To clean the wall, you need to prepare some tools, such as: dust collector or vacuum cleaner, mop or broom, microfiber cloth, nano decontamination technology sponge (magic eraser), non-abrasive sponge (non- abrasive sponge), mild detergent, natural baking soda powder or toothpaste , bucket. You don’t need to pursue high-tech new products or advertise specialized cleaning agents, just basic cleaning products will do! In addition, for self-protection to avoid allergies, don’t forget to prepare masks, gloves or hoods.
Before cleaning the wall, you need to remove all the furnishings on the wall. This is also a good opportunity for comprehensive dust removal for walls, furniture, and accessories.
Cleaning the surface dust on the wall requires a little skill, and brute force is not enough, because “dust and dust” will only make the house more and more dirty.
You can use a vacuum cleaner or the dust brush of a vacuum cleaner to remove the dust. If you don’t have these appliances, use a retractable dusting paper mop or broom covered with a chemical fiber cloth (such as microfiber cloth), which can also effectively clean the corners and ceilings. The dust.
The dust removal direction also needs to remove dust from a high place, and pay attention to the hardware part of the cleaning tool not to scratch the wall .
Prepare a bucket and fill it with about one gallon of warm water (not hot water). Add a little mild detergent. Remember not to use too much to avoid too much soap foam, because the foam will absorb dirt and make it impossible to clean it.
If you want to use a more natural cleaning agent, baking soda is also a good choice, but the wall dirt is too tenacious and may be difficult to clean.
This is an important step to test whether the cleaning solution will erode or damage the color and luster of the paint on the wall.
First, you can dip a little towel on the towel and adjust the cleaning solution yourself (the third step), try to wipe the back of the sofa or the wall behind the painting, and wait a few hours after wiping, and observe whether the wall paint or paint is It is as good as before, because some paints such as flat paint and eggshell paint are prone to staining or discoloration after cleaning.
Construction has officially started! Before cleaning the wall, use a non-abrasive sponge or cotton cloth to soak in the cleaning solution, take it out and wring it out, damp but not soaked, the intention is to prevent water stains on the wall and wall paint from foaming after being wetted by the liquid. Then gently apply force in a circular motion to clean the wall in sections. Because water droplets will drip down the wall, it is best to start cleaning from the top of the wall.
After cleaning the wall according to the fifth step, if you see obvious dirt or abrasion marks on the wall, such as mold, handprints or footprints, graffiti, then the nano decontamination technology sponge (magic eraser) can be sent Useful; after moistening with some water, squeeze out the excess water, then gently wipe the stained area, and then wipe off the water with a dry cloth or facial tissue. Be careful not to apply too much force to avoid self-defeating.
Maybe you have followed the above cleaning steps step by step to clean, but the dirt on the wall remains unchanged, or the wall paint is peeling off and there are many water stains, then you may wish to consider “repainting the entire wall”! Because it is not wise to paint a certain “dirty spot” on the wall. New paint, old paint, and faded paint will have different levels of tones. Even the same color of paint, the gloss will be different.
In addition to repainting the walls, if some walls turn yellow or black, water stains, brown smoke stains, and wall cancers that are difficult to wear off, you can only contact the cleaning company at this time. Because of the continuous occurrence of “wall cancer”, the best way is not to paint, but to find the source of the leak and repair it before it can be cured.
