The Proper Way to Clean Your Matte Finish Walls

The Proper Way to Clean Your Matte Finish Walls

We all have those areas in our homes where the painted wall surfaces get dirty and marked up over time. We find this mostly in entry areas, along staircases, and in kitchens and bathrooms. If you have chosen to go with a matte finish paint in those areas, cleaning your walls can be a little tricky. Many of our customers have asked us about cleaning their matte finished walls and in our experience this is what we have found to be the most effective solution:

STEP 1: Vacuum your walls to remove dust particles
STEP 2: Prepare two buckets, one with a mild detergent and water solution, and one with clean water to rinse the walls
STEP 3: Wash walls with a clean sponge and the mild detergent and water mixture. Use gentle strokes with the sponge, working from bottom, up.
STEP 4: Wipe the walls lightly because matte finishes have a tendency to wash off easily. It may be a good idea to keep some extra matte finish handy in order to make any touch-ups if need be.
STEP 5: Use the clean water and another clean sponge to rinse the matte finished walls. Use soft cloths to soak up any extra water.
STEP 6: Routinely cleaning your walls keeps the matte finish looking bright and fresh!
