One of the most rewarding features of using cladding tiles for your home or commercial projects is the reduced level of maintenance that they require. Brick cladding can sustain colour, look, and feel for decades with the least bit of maintenance, but that does not mean that they do not need maintenance, at all. You need to regularly clean them for dust or any kind of residue that might get stick to it.
While cladding tiles are resistant to most things like dust, water, corrosion, and the extremities of climates, they can still collect dust. And because we are obsessed with keeping our spaces as clean as possible, it is important to clean our wall cladding as well. Here are a few steps in the right direction to help you clean your wall cladding.
How To Clean Your Wall Cladding?
Dust accumulating on the walls is a common problem in our country, especially if you live near the highways. And if you have a lot of windows, the dust often enters the home and accumulates on the walls. While you can dust the brick cladding elevation with a broom or a cloth, the flying dust will only cause more problems for everyone. Take a vacuum cleaner to clean both the exterior and interior of the wall. This will ensure thorough cleaning and won’t let the dust fly out.
TSP or trisodium phosphate is an inorganic compound that makes an alkaline solution when mixed with water, which makes it a great cleaning agent, stain remover, and degreaser. Mix half a cup of TSP in about 3.785 litres of warm water, and use this solution with a soft-bristled brush to clean your cladding walls.
While there are a number of ways of cleaning your walls, nothing beats just simply cleaning something with clear water. The key thing to remember here is not about how you use the water or what you use to do the cleaning action with water. Once you are done cleaning, for exterior walls, letting them air dry is a good option while drying the inner walls with a clean towel is the right approach.
Salt and Washing Liquid
This step needs to be followed after the dust has been removed from the walls. You will need a homemade solution made with three ingredients:
- Dishwashing liquid
Mix an equal amount of salt and dishwashing liquid in enough water to create a thick paste. Spread the paste onto the wall with a thick cloth or sponge, scrub with a wire or plastic brush to get the solution inside the linings of the wall. Leave it to set for 15 minutes before cleaning it water.
Cleaning brick cladding and tile is not difficult given how tough, durable, and resistant they are to a lot of things. With that said, the use of harsh chemicals and cleaning agents is not recommended because they can harm the texture of the tiles.
