Cleaning Guide

This cleaning guide is for our printed wall vinyl on base substrates Main Sail, Sandy Bank and Silk Road.

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, nail polish, lipstick, oil shampoo tints, paint, lacquer or enamel and some foods.

The normal cleaning of the wall coverings should be done with mild ingredients such as soap, detergent and water. If stained and stronger cleaning is required, a liquid household cleaner should be used. Liquid cleaners should be of low VOC content and non-abrasive.

Metallic finishes can be discoloured with the use of caustic cleaners. Thus, we recommend only the use of a mild soap solution for cleaning these products. If stronger cleaning is required, first evaluate the cleaner in an inconspicuous location.

The method of cleaning should be to use a natural sponge and mild soap solution. A natural sponge’s construction does the best job of removing dirt from the textured surface. With difficult to remove deposits, the use of a soft bristle brush is recommended. Then, rinse thoroughly with clean clear water, changing the water often to insure it remains clean and clear. After cleaning an area, be sure to dry with an absorbent cloth so it can be examined to assure complete cleaning.

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

Repeated use of stronger cleaners will extract plasticizer from vinyl wall coverings causing the wall covering to lose its suppleness.

Precautions

Excess soiling materials such as chewing gum, asphalt, crayon, paint, nail polish or tar should be carefully scraped off prior to other cleaning attempts.
