Stain removal from walls can be a tricky thing as no one wants to damage the paint finish. Again, if the wall is damaged too much due to stain removal, you might have to get the wall repainted. The idea is to take a careful approach so that you don’t need to get the house repainted before it’s time.
For best results change your approach depending on the kind of stain. The type of cleaner you will use and the technique(s) you will implement depend much on the stain.
Grubless, an ace cleaning product manufacturer in Brisbane brings to you different ways to eliminate varied stains off the walls.
Loose Dirt Removal
To begin, take a bucket of clean water and some rags. Dip the rags inside the bucket, soak them in water and rinse out the excess water. Use the rags to wipe the walls properly for removal of loose dust. Rinse out the rags or if necessary replace them with fresh rags. Once the wall is free from loose dirt, refill the bucket with a solution of detergent and warm water. You can use laundry powder or dishwashing detergent. Use a microfiber cloth or sponge to wipe down the walls while rinsing out as per requirement. This should remove surface dirt but deeper stains may still be there, which would need specialised technique. Rub the drywall gently because excessive pressure exertion may cause damage taking off the paint from the drywall.
General Grime Removal
A solution of dishwashing detergent and warm water is greatly effective on the elimination of general grime from walls. You can use a homemade cleaner as well – mix one cup of ammonia with a half cup of apple cider vinegar or white distilled vinegar and add a cup of baking soda. Mix the solution with one gallon of warm water and apply it on grime with a cloth or sponge. Now wipe it with clean water. While the process will help you remove general grime, it will take away micro bacteria from your walls, which have accumulated over years. If your home has kids or elderly people, this process is all the more necessary.
Pencil, Crayon, Ink Stains Removal
When it comes to pencil, crayon and/or ink stains removal, act quickly. Use clean wipes to remove these stains when they are fresh. You can also use cleaning erasers. Pencil stains can be removed with an art gum or rubber erasers. Baking soda also works well on such stains. For oil-based stains such as from ballpoint ink, you can apply men’s foam shaving cream. Nail polish or hair spray remover also helps remove these types of stain. Toothpaste can be used to rub onto the stain as well but use the chalky type, not the gel type. Let it sit on the stain for fifteen minutes and then wipe off with a wet cloth.
