A thorough cleaning of your ceiling and walls can really transform your home.

To get the best results, it's recommended to start with the ceiling.

Here’s a simple guide on how to effectively make your ceiling look as good as new.

Is it time for a deep clean? A quick glance upwards in your home can often reveal the need for a thorough cleaning. Especially wooden ceilings can accumulate a surprising amount of dust, cobwebs, and other grime over time that requires special attention.

Step-by-step guide:

  1. Remove dust and cobwebs: Start by removing loose dust and cobwebs with a good dust mop. This is important to ensure you’re not just spreading the dust around when you start washing.

  2. Prepare a cleaning solution: Mix warm water with all-purpose cleaner in a bucket. The warmth of the water helps dissolve the dirt more effectively.

  3. Wash the ceiling: Use a floor mop equipped with a clean mop head. Start in one corner of the ceiling and work systematically to ensure you cover the entire surface. Move the mop in smooth motions to avoid leaving streaks.

  4. Dry the ceiling: After washing, you should dry the ceiling with a clean and dry mop head to remove any remaining dirty wash water that could otherwise leave stains.

Additional tips:

Drying is important: It’s essential to completely remove the dirty wash water, as it can dry and leave marks.

Be cautious with wooden ceilings: If your ceiling is made of wood, be particularly careful not to use too much water, as it can damage the wood.

Alternative method: Alternatively, you can use a regular wrung-out cloth for washing and then dry with a dry cloth afterward. This might take longer than using a floor mop but may be necessary for more delicate surfaces.
