Your Guide to Caring for your Wall Coverings
Care for Vinyl wall covering
Cleaning with damp (non-abrasive) cloth/ soft sponge (not steel wool) will clean off most dirt on the vinyl wall covering, be careful not to use too much strength or scrubbing the wall covering as it may damage the surface or laminated top coat. To remove stains, it is recommended to use mild soap with warm water with light pressure cleaning it in a single direction instead of all directions to prevent marring. Rinse with clean water frequently during the cleaning process. For more stubborn stains, use a slightly stronger soap with non-abrasive household cleaner or rubbing alcohol. Remove the stain/s quickly to eliminate any possible reaction between the staining agent and the wall covering. Timeliness is key, the quicker we remove the stain, the easier the stain is cleaned off (especially for stains with colourants like ballpoint inks, lipsticks, etc). Never use nail polish remover, any oil-based solvents or bleaches on wall coverings as patchiness may surface after cleaning. Dry the wall covering with a lint-free cloth or towel after cleaning. Repeat if necessary.
Care for Erica Wakerly Wallpaper
Surface marks on the wallpaper can be removed by gently dabbing with a moist clean sponge/ lint-free cloth. Do not scrub or use any abrasive cleaning agents. Due to the metallic finishes on the paper, no alkali solvent should come in contact with the wallpaper to protect the finish. This is a lavishly handcrafted speciality product, delicate care is needed.
Care for Wall Murals
Most dirt spots can be removed with moist (non-abrasive) cloth. Cleaning from the bottom first avoids water streaking and try on a small spot instead of attempting the whole wall. If stain/ dirt cannot be removed with that, try it with mild soap and move slightly stronger solutions if the stain remains. Never use abrasive solvents or cloth attempting to remove dirt/stains as it will damage the wall covering/mural.
