Normal Cleaning

The normal cleaning of digital wall coverings should be done with mild ingredients such as soap, detergents, citrus-based cleaners, and water. If the wall covering is stained and stronger cleaning is required, a stronger liquid household cleaner should be used.

Always test in an inconspicuous area first in-case of damage or discolouration.

Method Of Cleaning

1) Rub the area gently with a cloth or natural sponge that contains a detergent solution.

2) lf the wall covering pattern has a rough texture, a very soft bristle brush should be considered. When cleaning, do not use excessive pressure or a brush with hard bristles as that has the potential to burnish or abrade the surface of the wall covering, and damage the print.

3) Follow #1 or #2 above with a rinse of clean water.

4) Gently towel the area dry.

5) Examine the area and repeat the cleaning procedure if necessary.

Repeated use of stronger cleaners in the same area of the wall covering can cause the wall covering to lose its “homogeneous surface appearance” when viewed from different lighting conditions.

Stain Removal

Stains should be removed as quickly as possible to eliminate any possible reaction between the staining agent and the wall covering. Time is especially important for removing materials containing colours or solvents such as ballpoint ink, markers, paint, and some foodstuffs.

Excess soiling materials, such as chewing gum, crayon, paint, or tar like substances should be carefully scraped off prior to the other cleaning attempts.

By carefully using a mild solvent such as lsopropyl Alcohol or Turpentine, some stains can be removed without damaging the print. However, before attempting this it is a good idea to evaluate how it affects the wall covering by trying this in an inconspicuous spot on the wall covering.

NEVER MIX CLEANING REAGENTS TOGETHER. VIOLENT REACTIONS MAY OCCUR WHICH COULD RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY. OBSERVE ALL LABEL PRECAUTIONS WHEN USING THESE AND ANY CLEANING AGENTS.
