Keep your walls looking their best!

Whether your household is full of children with sticky fingers or adults with butter fingers, chances are you’re going to need to clean your walls from time to time. Smudges, smears, and finger marks gather on your walls throughout the year. For expert tips on how to keep them clean, read on.

In Preparation

The first step to cleaning your walls effectively is to first prepare the space. Push your furniture towards the center of the room and lay down old sheets to catch any drips that result from scrubbing.

Gather your necessary tools. You’ll need a wool duster, white cleaning cloths, a naturally colored sponge, and two buckets. Fill one bucket with cleaning solution and the other with clear water for rinsing.

While Cleaning

First, remove any loose dust that has collected on the walls. Circle the room with the wool duster and wipe the walls and woodwork from the top down.

Next, dip the sponge into the bucket with cleaning solution and start to scrub. While drips are inevitable, you can limit the amount of moisture that collects by washing the walls from the bottom up. Work in small areas, washing then using the sponge to rinse the area with clean water. Blot any excess moisture with white cleaning cloths.

Ensure that you’re cleaning the entirety of the wall, not just the areas that appear dirty. For a nice, even, crisp finish — take the time to clean every inch of your walls.
