Once your wallpaper is in place, all you have to do is enjoy it. It is sure to create a very comfortable atmosphere in the room where you have installed it. But remember that it also requires a bit of maintenance so that it always looks perfect. Although it is not a lot of work, it is necessary to do it regularly so that the wallpaper lasts longer.
Like any household item, wallpaper can also accumulate dust. Removing it is necessary to keep it looking its best. That's why it needs to be cleaned at least once a week. It all depends on the specific circumstances of the place in the house or building where the wallpaper is located.
All you need to do is warm water and a neutral soap. You can apply it with a cloth or sponge. Afterwards, you should dry it well to prevent excess moisture from affecting the paper.
Avoid using excessively aggressive products such as degreasers or bleach. Do not use scouring pads or any other utensils that could cause tears and rips in the wallpaper. Avoid rubbing, and apply gently and in a circular motion so that it is evenly distributed.
Using a feather duster will only cause the dust to be displaced and the cleaning will not be complete. That's why it's always best to use a wet cloth if you want to get the right results. However, it is always advisable to follow the manufacturer's instructions as dry cleaning may be necessary in certain cases depending on the wallpaper materials.
It is useful to know how to treat stains on wallpaper.
The general cleaning and maintenance of wallpaper is fairly straightforward. Another issue is when more serious stains occur on the wallpaper. In such cases, it is best to stay calm and act as soon as possible. If it dries it will be much more difficult to make it disappear.
One of the main difficulties is that you cannot use products that are too strong as they can destroy the wallpaper. If the stain has been caused by a particularly heavy substance, the first thing to do is to remove the excess with kitchen paper to prevent further spillage.
If this is not the case, then you can use an absorbent material to make the stain disappear. Talcum powder is one of the most effective stains that you should apply and leave on for a whole day.
Carbonated water is another product that can also be used to clean stains in specific areas of the wallpaper. You should apply it to a cloth and rub gently to achieve the desired effect.
If your wallpaper has been the canvas on which your children have drawn their artwork, you can also find a solution. If you have used crayons you can use an eraser to remove most of the damage. If it's paint you should treat it like a grease stain. The main problem is when you use ink from markers or pens. In such cases you will probably have to replace that part of the wallpaper.
Make sure you know the characteristics of the wallpaper you have applied. There are some wallpapers that can be rubbed harder than others and will allow you to remove stubborn stains. The manufacturer usually gives clear instructions on how to care for your wallpaper properly.
