Climbing the walls, make sure they are clean….

  1. Before washing the walls, you will need to remove any loose dirt and dust. Cleaning without removing these will result in creating and spreading mud. This will create a larger mess than you started with.
  2. There are several ways to remove the dry dust and dirt.
    • Use a vacuum with a brush attachment to vacuum the surface and remove the loose dirt.
    • Use a clean, soft cloth to wipe the surface of the walls. This can be done by hand or by wrapping a dry mop head or broom head with a soft cloth and brushing it over the surface.
  3. Once all of the dry dirt is removed, you are ready to wash the walls.
  4. Choose a cleaning product safe for your wall coverings.  Most painted walls are safe to clean with an all purpose cleaner or a mix of 1 cup ammonia, ½ cup vinegar, ¼ cup baking soda and 1 gallon of warm      water.
  5. If you are unsure, start with plain water or just a small amount of cleaner. Test a hidden area to ensure there is no damage to the wall surface.
  6. Moisten a sponge, cloth or sponge mop with water and the desired cleaner. Start at the bottom and work in vertical sections to the top, wiping the surface of the wall until all of the dirt is removed.  Overlap the cleaning areas to prevent streaks.
  7. Rinse with clean water from the second bucket.
  8. Move to the next section and repeat the cleaning and rinsing. Work your way around the room.
  9. If desired, dry the surface with clean, soft cloth or allow them to air dry. Ensure there no drips or it will leave a mark.
