How to clean your wallpaper

The walls of your home are largely responsible for influencing the style and climate of an environment. The choice of wallpapers adds more than just color; provides extra personality and dimension in your room.

However, unlike paint-only walls, wallpapers need to be carefully cleaned and cared for. They can be damaged if you are not careful, especially with older, uncoated wallpapers.

The initial step -sage-green

To clean the wallpaper, always start by removing dust and cobwebs first. You can clean it using a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush. This is a must if your wallpaper is textured or flaky.

Also, dusting your wallpaper regularly helps keep it looking clean.

Although all types of wallpapers can be vacuumed and dusted, there is a difference in the deeper cleaning method depending on the material of each wallpaper.

These are some tips on how you can give your wallpaper even more love and clean it properly.

Vinyl Wallpaper

Vinyl wallpapers are the most commonly used type of wallpaper on the market today. The design is printed on a paper backing and then vinyl coated, making it durable and easy to install in any room due to its resilience and variety of design.

Vinyl wallpapers are the easiest to clean as well. They can be safely cleaned by washing. You can use a natural sponge moistened with your cleaning solution or in mild detergent water.

One section at a time, start cleaning lightly from the bottom (also to prevent it from dropping from top to bottom) and go to the top. Be careful not to rub too hard or make the paper too wet.

Nonwoven Wallpapers

Non-woven wallpapers are made from a special blend of natural and synthetic fibers. It is the newest trend in decoration. Considered the most user-friendly and eco-friendly on the market today, nonwoven wallpapers are washable and breathable, easy to install and remove - no tools and chemicals needed.

Like vinyl wallpaper, nonwoven wallpapers can be easily cleaned using a sponge dampened with a mild cleaning solution.

Plain paper wallpaper

Paper wallpaper is probably the most delicate type. It is usually made entirely of paper without any coating. As much as possible, avoid installing this type of wallpaper in busy rooms.
