Cleaning a surface that has already been painted.

Wash your painted surfaces carefully

We’d all like to believe that our freshly-painted walls and other surfaces are going to remain spotless for the next ten years, but the fact is that dust, grime, an occasional spill, and other factors are always a concern for us.  You’re aware that maintenance cleaning is a necessity to the life of your painted surfaces, but what’s the best choice is cleaning solutions?

May I suggest that when you are selecting a cleaner, you must be sure to use a non-abrasive cleaner. If you apply an abrasive cleaner, you can wreak all kinds of havoc on that nice surface, so please be careful with what you use. Another note:  when you’re cleaning a waterborne paint, be careful to avoid products that are ammoniated. The overall answer is simple, really: mild, soapy water will generally do the job just fine.  Play safe, though – always test the cleaning solution in an inconspicuous area to ensure that it does not damage the paint film.
