Care & Maintenance

PMDW Care and Maintenance Digital Wallcoverings

As with any quality product, proper care and maintenance will extend the useful life of your digital wallcovering and help maintain its original beauty and finish. 

The following general cleaning instructions will serve as a guide to normal cleaning maintenance: 

Digital wallcovering should be washed regularly enough to prevent dirt and grime from accumulating, and to maintain the original beauty of the Digital wallcovering. Depending on traffic (light, medium, heavy), digital wallcovering should be washed from 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 soilants remain on the wallcovering too long, permanent discoloration may develop.

 It should be noted that digital 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 bristle brush can be used to remove dirt from the crevices of deeply textured patterns. Clean from the bottom, upward. Using a sponge, rinse thoroughly with clean water, from the top, down. 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. 

We recommend all cleaners first be tested in an inconspicuous area to insure compatibility with the wallcovering. 

Not recommended for cleaning are isopropyl alcohols, 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.
