However, there are some maintenance tips we can give you that will make a huge difference in how your walls look. You can have beautiful walls all year long and not have to do major repaints a few months after painting them. If you follow these guidelines and use these tips, you can keep your walls looking their best for years to come.
The marks and oils are a bit tougher to deal with, but you do want to address them as soon as you notice them. You can use bleaching cloths and other mild cleaning agents to get rid of them. Make sure that whatever you use is designed to be safe for paint and that it won’t take the paint off with the marks. For the tougher stains and marks, you can use baking soda and water, mixed into a paste, and rub it onto the wall with a nonabrasive cleaning tool, such as a soft rag or cloth. This works really well for latex-based paints, which make up the majority of paint that people use on their walls.
With these tips, you should be able to keep your walls clean and looking great for a long time to come. Just be sure to address stains and marks on your walls as soon as you can so that your work is as simple as possible.
