How to Clean and Wash Walls? Cleaning and washing walls can help refresh the look of a room and maintain a clean living environment.
Supplies you may need:
- Dusting tools: Use a duster, microfiber cloth, or a broom to remove loose dust and cobwebs from the walls.
- Mild cleaning solution: Mix a solution of mild dish soap or a gentle all-purpose cleaner with water. Avoid using harsh chemicals that may damage the paint or finish.
- Soft sponges or cloths: Microfiber cloths or soft sponges work well for washing walls.
- Bucket: For holding your cleaning solution.
- Ladder or step stool: If you need to reach high areas.
- Rubber gloves: To protect your hands from cleaning solutions.
- Old towels or drop cloths: Place them on the floor to catch any drips.
- Dust the walls:
- Start by removing any loose dust or cobwebs from the walls using a duster or broom. Dust from top to bottom to avoid resettling.
- Prepare the cleaning solution:
- Mix a small amount of mild dish soap or an all-purpose cleaner with warm water in a bucket. Avoid using too much soap, as it may leave a residue.
- Test in an inconspicuous area:
- Before cleaning the entire wall, test your cleaning solution in a small, inconspicuous area to ensure it doesn’t damage the paint or finish.
- Wash the walls:
- Dip a soft sponge or cloth into the cleaning solution and wring out excess water.
- Wipe the walls gently, starting from the bottom and working your way up to prevent streaks. Use a light touch, especially if you have flat paint.
- Rinse with clean water:
- Wipe the walls with a clean, damp cloth or sponge to remove any soap residue. Make sure not to oversaturate the walls.
- Dry the walls:
- Use a dry, clean cloth or towel to pat the walls dry. This helps prevent streaks and water spots.
- Spot cleaning:
- For stubborn stains, you can use a mixture of baking soda and water to form a paste. Apply the paste to the stain, let it sit for a few minutes, and then gently scrub with a soft brush or cloth.
- Touch-up paint if needed:
- If you notice any areas where the paint has been damaged during cleaning, consider touching up those spots with matching paint.
