Your walls are clean and looking amazing.  What could happen to make it look horrible?  Either a flattened spider, some food that spills on the walls, or some dirt from the dog’s paw.  Let’s look how to clean walls in your house.


How to Clean Walls in Your House

So let’s get right down to the basic ways to clean your walls:

  • Patience is your best friend
  • Apply a soft cloth, warmed with water
  • Don’t scrub or use any abrasive motion – it will burnish the walls
  • Repeat this process if needed

Preparation of Walls is Key

Actually, knowing what is the best paint to apply before a stain occurs is key.  I recommend the best quality materials and finishes for high-traffic areas such as kitchens, hallways, bathrooms and laundry room.  These areas get the most stains on the walls.

The better paint products tend to be a more durable surface and clean up better.

Secondly, if for some reason the warm water process noted above doesn’t work, using the higher quality paint tends to touch-up better than their less expensive counterparts.


To sum up, how to clean the walls in your house isn’t that hard.  Warm water and patience is your friend.  But the best advice I can give is using the highest quality paint you can afford.  This will help you clean your walls.
