A practical guide to keeping your ceilings looking their best for longer
1. Use a vacuum cleaner to remove dust and dirt deposits from the ceiling.
2. Clean with soapy water or a special cleaning product for synthetic materials, using a soft sponge and rinsing with clean water.
3. Apply an additional protective spray coat twice a year to prevent staining or mould growth on the stretch ceiling.
4. Use cotton gloves and goggles when cleaning or applying chemicals, to protect your skin and eyes from harmful chemicals.
5. Place a tarpaulin or protective film under your cleaning equipment to prevent unwanted stains on the stretch ceiling or adjacent wall.
6. Do not use aggressive abrasive agents to clean stubborn stains, as this can lead to premature wear of the stretch ceiling covering and make it vulnerable to future accumulation of dirt, dust and mould.
7. Do not use sharp tools to remove embedded dirt, as this may damage the stretch ceiling lining.
8. Do not attempt to remove large stains or adhesive substances on your own, as these are too difficult to remove by simple washing: call in a qualified professional with the right tools for the specific type of coating present on your stretch ceiling, so that cleaning can be carried out correctly without the risk of further damaging the existing coating.
