Caring for Your Wallcovering

Press Release   •   Nov 30, 2011 11:52 SGT

General Cleaning Instructions

DAY-TO-DAY SOIL

Remove ordinary dirt and smudges with mild soap and warm water, and if needed, a hard bristle brush to remove stubborn dirt lodged in textured surface.

Always work with a wet surface to the wallcovering. To prevent streaking, start from the bottom and work upwards.

Rinse by sponging with clean water from top down. Pay extra attention to deeply-textured wallcovering as suds and loose dirt tend to lodge in depressed surfaces. It is important to rinse off any residual soap as leftover soap will leave an amber stain on the wallcovering surface over time.

As a final step, dry the surface with a soft, lint-free cloth or towel with a blotting action. Do not dry-rub as it may cause the surface to burnish or become shiny.

DIFFICULT SURFACE STAINS

For stubborn stains, use a stronger detergent that is in accordance to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Goodrich Global does not recommend the use of any steel wool or powdered abrasive cleaners as they mar the surface, leaving an undesirable appearance. DO NOT use active solvent-type cleaning preparations, such as nail polish remover, tar and bug removers, etc., as they will remove the surface paint and/or wallcovering’s protective finish.

SPECIAL STAINS

LACQUER AND SHELLAC

Remove IMMEDIATELY with a dry cloth, taking care not to spread the stain. Wipe clean with water.

BALLPOINT PEN INK

Remove IMMEDIATELY using a damp cloth.

TAR AND ASPHALT

Remove IMMEDIATELY using a damp cloth. Rub gently from the outside edge of the stain
into the center to prevent spreading the stain. Rinse with clean water.

PAINT AND ENAMEL

Remove IMMEDIATELY using a damp sponge or cloth. Wash with mild soap and water, and
rinse with clean water.

CHEWING GUM, GREASE AND SHOE POLISH

Scrape off as much as possible. (An ice cube rubbed on chewing gum is more effective.)

Remove residue rinse with clean water.

BLOOD

It is easy to remove blood from vinyl wallcovering with regular cleaners. Just remember to clean the surface again with clean water to remove any soap residue.

If you wish to use professional cleaners used in hospitals to combat the spread of HIV, do remember to do a patch test before you apply it on large areas of wall surfaces.

FAECES AND URINE

Remove quickly with a mild soap solution. Rinse well with clean water.

PENCIL AND CRAYON

Scrape off pencil or crayon markings. Remaining marks can be removed with clean water
