Written by Fatematuzzohra Suha

Painting is one of the least demanding yet most modest approaches to change the look of a room or the whole house.  Subsequent to investing energy and money painting your walls, it’s imperative to maintain them and expand the life of your paint. In times, your recently painted surfaces may require some maintenance. Cleaning is crucial for protecting the general magnificence and expanding the life of the paint. Walls are bound get spoiled, particularly at children and pet level. Cleaning them frequently is quite an essential to keeping your home looking squeaky clean. But of course, taking care of the painted walls matches no other forms of cleaning. It requires time, patience and a lot of effort. You need to clean painted walls without harming them and it’s quite a task.

There are fundamentally two sorts of stains: oil-and waterborne. As often as possible only a wet fabric removes the waterborne ones — wine, Jell-O, ketchup, mustard, even crushed mosquitoes. For sleek stains — cooking oil, pastel, shoe clean, lipstick — you may need to heighten to the gentle dishwashing cleanser strategy. Before you clean, figure out what sort of paint is on the wall. Semi-shine or enamel paint will confront washing. Flat, stain or eggshell finishes are not as solid and may rub off on the off chance that you scrub excessively hard or utilize a rough cleaner. Regardless of what kind of paint is, you have to dust them before washing them. Put the brush connection on your vacuum and run it over walls to expel surface residue and soil as much as possible. Dust is always easier to expel than mud, so remove any loose dust before bringing moisture into the mix.

Realizing how to clean painted walls is particularly fundamental especially if you have children in your home. You are likely to have colored pencil blemishes on every wall. Scrub them with a wipe of cleaner and after that rinse with clean water. Begin with clear water on a cloth or a nonabrasive wipe or paper towel, and rub the stain delicately. If doesn’t work, plunge the cloth or wipe into water blended with a bit of dishwashing fluid, the milder the better. On the off chance that the stain perseveres, the following stage will be to apply a couple of drops of cleanser directly onto the wet wipe or fabric you’re using. For progressively obstinate cases, you could apply a little cleanser right onto the stain, scrub and wipe off with a piece of cloth.

You can prevent a portion of the harm by putting clear-or light-shaded elastic guards on the backs of your seats. Or then again you could introduce a defensive seat rail strip. Likewise consider hanging picture frames from two hooks rather than only one, so they don’t move around to such an extent that might cause discoloration of your paint. For scars that you already have on your walls, you can do touch ups with paint from the remaining during painting times. Make it certain to smooth out any scraped spot previously, and keep your patches as little as could be expected under the circumstances. Try not to get enticed to apply a major swatch — it will appear. For little fixes, stipple and spot on the paint. That will level out the sparkle and sheen and limit the distinction in surface among new and old paint.


Cleaning painted walls is a difficult task, so be prepared. Push furniture to the focal point of the room, and set down old sheets or canvas drop fabrics to catch the soapy dibbles. Keep away from plastic canvases as they don’t assimilate water and they end up dangerous when wet. To secure your hands and to remind you where pictures have a place, cover picture nails with a lump. Get the job done as per required and simply put things back to its places.
