General Information on Wallpaper Cleaning

by Michigan State University on May 11, 2012

Modern wallcoverings are now labeled "nonwashable", "washable", or "scrubbable". The safest ways to find out how to clean your paper if your wallcoverings wasn't labeled, is to take a small piece of it to a wallpaper dealer and ask them what they would recommend.

Another option is to test an unnoticeable area by wiping it with a damp cloth, if the wallpaper does not change in color or appearance, it probably can be safely cleaned as a washable wallpaper. Always test any cleaning method in an unnoticeable spot before trying in on a wall open to view.

It's best to clean quickly and not let dirt stay too long before taking action.
