The walls are the most important part of your home. They frame your home and make it feel like a place that you can call your own. So, if they are not looking as good as they should be, you should get them cleaned up!
On the other hand, cleaning manufactured home walls may seem like a difficult task to undertake. But thankfully, the good news is that it is rather easy and inexpensive to remove dirt and build-up from your wall. You can save money by cleaning them yourself or hiring a professional to do the job for you. Here are some manufactured home wall cleaning tips you can use to keep your walls clean and shiny!
Dust the Walls
The first step to cleaning your walls is to get rid of any dust. You will not be able to clean other things until you have done this. So, start by dusting the walls with a dry cloth. Make sure that you are using a dry cloth because if you use something damp, it can cause damage to the paint and finish on the wall.
Focus on Stains
The next step to cleaning the walls in your Butternut Creek home is to identify the stains on them. This may be difficult because some manufacturers use a varnish or paint coating on the walls that can hide dirt, stains, and discoloration. This is why it is important that you focus on stains and not just try to clean all of them all at once.
Once you have identified the staining material, use a mild detergent like dish soap or even water, if it is a particularly tough stain. Keep scrubbing until you remove as much of the build-up from your wall as possible.
Tips to Get Rid of Stains
- Baking Soda: Use baking soda in the form of a paste. You would want to apply the paste to the wall and let it sit for about ten minutes. Then, scrub the wall using an old toothbrush or similar brush. After a few minutes, you should be able to see the stains and build-up being removed from your wall.
- Turpentine Oil: Add the water to the container, then add the turpentine. Stir well to mix the turpentine with the water. Allow the mixture to sit for about 10 minutes before using it on your walls. Spray onto your walls and leave it for about ten minutes or until the color starts to come off. This will take some time, but this is not an issue, because it will not harm the paint on your wall. Repeat this process as many times as necessary until all the stains are gone from your manufactured home wall.
- Washing Soda: Baking soda will remove the build-up without damaging the paint or coatings on your wall.
You will need half a cup of white distilled vinegar, two cups of warm water, and half a teaspoon of washing soda. It can be mixed very easily in a bucket. The mixture should be applied to the area in small amounts and rubbed into the stain until it disappears. Rinse the area with clean water and dry it with a towel or cloth.
Wash the Walls
The fastest and easiest way to clean the walls in your home is using a washable wall cleaner. You can also use a harsh scrubbing brush to help break down some of the hard-to-reach places on your walls, such as around pipes or corners where furniture pieces like couches are located. After that, wipe it down with a damp cloth and then rinse the walls. If there is still some residual dirt, use a dry cloth to wipe it off using circular motions on each side of the wall.
