Cleaning your Wallcoverings

Due to the unique variety of wallpaper, refer to the manufacturer's guidelines or contact the manufacturer for the particular paper you are using.

Basic Guidelines:


Stains should be removed as soon as possible to eliminate any possible reaction between the stain and the wallpaper. If soil remains on the wallpaper too long, permanent discoloration may result.

Ordinary dirt spots can be removed with a mild soap and warm water. Rinse thoroughly with clean water. Blot wallpaper dry with a soft lint-free towel. For more difficult stains that are only surface deep, use if a stronger detergent is recommended. Try an inconspicuous spot first before attempting the entire wall. One should always rinse after applying a detergent. Abrasive rubbing of spots should be avoided so discoloration cannot appear.

Do not use steel wool or powdered cleaners, or active solvent-type preparations, such as nail polish remover, tar and bug removers, etc. because they may damage the wallpaper.
