What means to wash the ceilings
Before you start washing ceilings, prepare the right detergent.

Ideal for glossy, shiny and satin surfaces – window and mirror cleaners. The high-quality composition of the product guarantees streak-free cleaning. Apply the product to the entire surface and wipe with a dry, lint-free cloth. Dishwashing gel is ideal for dirt on the kitchen ceiling. Dilute a few drops of the product in a small amount of water and apply pointwise to contaminated areas. Remove grease with a sponge, rinse with water and dry with a dry soft cloth. You can use a solution of ammonia. To do this, in a ratio of 10: 1 (10 parts of water and 1 part of ammonia), prepare the composition. Pour into a spray bottle and apply to the entire ceiling surface. Wipe with a dry cloth. Special professional tools. They are used for heavy pollution or when absorbing odors in the kitchen. Act strictly according to the instructions.
– A bowl of warm water 35 – 40 degrees.
– A mop with a flat head or a soft brush wrapped in a soft, lint-free cloth.
– Microfibre and flannel cleaning cloths.
– Soft lips.
– A steam generator or steam mop is suitable for most matte and fabric surfaces, but not all. Check with the manufacturer first.
On the glossy surface of the canvas, plaque and dust are especially noticeable. Glass cleaner is best for cleaning.
It is necessary to wash the matte ceiling in two stages. First you need to clean the surface with soapy water or ammonia, and then remove the stains.
For ceilings made of printed texture or smooth satin fabric, mild detergents in an aqueous solution are used. Do not spray a lot of liquid on such ceilings. Work with a semi-dry or dry cloth.
Start cleaning from the furthest corner of the room. Apply some cleaning solution and see how the ceiling surface reacts. This is very important if you are washing a stretch ceiling for the first time. Do not apply pressure to the ceiling surface. Control the degree of pressure, try to do it evenly. If the stain persists, wait a few minutes and wipe again. To prevent streaks from forming on the surface, wipe in straight lines in one direction, not in a circular motion. Before cleaning matte surfaces, it is recommended to pre-vacuum the ceiling. You need to vacuum from a close distance, without touching the ceiling. In difficult situations, contact the clearing company or the services of a stretch ceiling installation company.
