Wallpaper Maintenance 101: How to Care for and Clean Your Wallpaper

Wallpaper is back and here to stay! This post provides you with some tips and tricks on how to maintain your wallpaper so that it stays looking its best for years to come.


First and foremost, it's important to remember that not all wallpapers are created equal. Some wallpapers are more durable and washable than others, so it's essential to check the manufacturer's instructions before attempting to clean your wallpaper. If you're unsure about the best way to care for your wallpaper, it's always a good idea to consult with a professional wallpaper installer or designer. Wallpaper Abilene would be happy to help!


One of the best ways to care for your wallpaper is to prevent damage in the first place. To do this, avoid placing furniture or other objects directly against the wallpaper, as this can cause dents and tears. Additionally, try to keep your wallpaper away from direct sunlight, as prolonged exposure can cause fading and discoloration.


When it comes to cleaning your wallpaper, the best method is often the simplest. Start by dusting your wallpaper regularly with a soft, dry cloth or duster to remove any surface dirt and dust. For more stubborn stains or marks, you can gently wipe the wallpaper with a damp cloth, being careful not to use too much water as this can cause damage.


If your wallpaper is particularly dirty or stained, you may need to use a mild cleaning solution. Mix a small amount of dish soap or wallpaper cleaner with water, and test it on a small, inconspicuous area of the wallpaper first to ensure that it doesn't cause any damage. Then, using a soft sponge or cloth, gently scrub the stained area, being careful not to rub too hard.


Once you've cleaned your wallpaper, be sure to dry it thoroughly with a clean, dry cloth to prevent any water damage. If you notice any tears or damage to your wallpaper, it's essential to repair it as soon as possible to prevent further damage.
