Cleansing methods

Dry cleansing methods = Clean surfaces with a vacuum cleaner or a dry brush, mop, or cloth.


Damp cleansing methods = Clean surfaces with a soft, slightly damp sponge or cleaning cloth dipped in a neutral washing solution (pH 6 - 8). Dry the surfaces after cleansing. Dilute the washing solution as instructed by the dishwashing liquid manufacturer. Dry with a cloth if necessary.


Moist cleansing methods = Clean surfaces with a cloth, mop, or sponge soaked in a neutral washing solution (pH 6 - 8), e.g. dishwashing liquid, and thoroughly rinse the surfaces afterwards.
Dilute the washing solution as instructed by the dishwashing liquid manufacturer.
Dry with a cleaning cloth if necessary.


Wet cleansing methods = Clean surfaces contaminated by grease and soot with a cloth, mop, or sponge soaked in a weak alkaline washing solution (pH 8-10). Use plenty of washing solution. Rinse and dry surfaces thoroughly, as any remaining dampness and alkaline surface residue will erode the paint.

Start and work away from window walls during dry, damp, or moist cleansing of ceilings. Wipe in the same direction as the light with even strokes. To prevent any visible edges, do not lift the wiper during the stroke. After wiping each strip, rinse the wiper in the washing solution. Work in the same direction if there are seams or patterns in the ceiling.
