As with any quality product, proper care and maintenance will extend the useful life of your vinyl wallcovering and help maintain its original beauty and finish.
The following general cleaning instructions will serve as a guide to normal cleaning maintenance:
WOVIN Vinyl wallcovering should be vacuumed regularly enough to prevent dirt and grime from accumulating, and to maintain the original beauty of the vinyl.
Depending on traffic (light, medium, heavy), spot cleaning, soft bleach once to two or three times a year.
Stains should be removed as quickly as possible to eliminate any possible reaction between the staining agent and the wallcovering.
Time is especially important for removing materials containing colors or solvents such as ballpoint ink, shampoo, tints and some foodstuffs.
If solvents remain on the wallcovering too long, permanent discoloration may develop.
It should be noted that vinyl wallcoverings should not be sprayed with wax or other protective coatings. Such applications would only tend to discolor the material, and, in any case, would offer little protection.
Ordinary dirt and smudges can be removed with mild soap and warm water. If necessary, a soft bristle brush can be used to remove dirt from the crevices of deeply textured patterns.
Deeply embossed wallcoverings need extra attention to prevent suds or loosened dirt from lodging in depressed surfaces.
Dry wallcovering with a soft, lint-free cloth or towel.
For more difficult stains that are only surface deep, the use of a stronger detergent is recommended, but that should be so hard which may damage wallcovering.
We recommend all cleaners first be tested in an inconspicuous area to insure compatibility with the wallcovering.
Not recommended for cleaning are isopropyl alcohol, powdered abrasive cleaners, or steel wool, as they may mar the surface, causing an unsightly appearance.
DO NOT use active solvent type cleaning preparations such as nail polish remover, tar and bug remover, etc., as they will remove print and/or finish from the wallcovering.
With proper care and attention, WOVIN vinyl wallcoverings will remain beautiful and serviceable for years.
