Simple Techniques to Clean Wallpapers
Published on Wednesday, 10 February 2010
Cleaning wallpapers can be tricky. Although the majority of wallpapers in the market are washable, you still need to check if yours can be washed safely.
The best thing you can do is to test a hidden area of your wallpaper. See if the colors will bleed or fade. Fully washable wallpaper will not bleed or fade so you cans safely clean it with soap and water.
The key to keep your wallpaper clean is regular vacuuming. You have to vacuum clean it at least once a week to prevent dust accumulation. You may need special vacuum cleaner attachments so you can easily clean hard to reach areas.
You can use a sponge for cleaning washable wallpapers. Dip the sponge in soapy water and sponge-clean the wallpaper to remove stains, dust and smudge. Rinse the wallpaper with cool tap water using a cleaner sponge. Never allow the wallpaper to air-dry. Use a dry terry cloth or towel and pat the wallpaper in order to immediately remove moisture.
For fabric wallpaper, the best cleaning option is to vacuum it regularly. If there are stains on the fabric, then it would be best to call a professional cleaning service to remove the stains.
