A ceiling yellowed by time is not inevitable and can easily be cleaned. Before any cleaning operation, it is important to know whether the paint placed on the ceiling is washable or not.
If the ceiling paint is washable, a simple cleaning is carried out with soapy water. First, we put tarps on its furniture, its floor, and its lights to protect them, then cut the electric current. You then brush your ceiling with a soft bristle brush to remove dust. We then prepare lukewarm soapy water with Marseille soap. We dip the sponge of a telescopic broom into it and vigorously rub its ceiling, proceeding in small areas. It is done? Finally, you rinse your ceiling with clean water, still using the telescopic sponge broom. The cleaning is repeated if the result is not satisfactory.
In the event that the ceiling paint is non-washable, do not use soapy water at the risk of damaging the paint! We prefer to clean the ceiling with a magic sponge (which we buy in the store) or with a damp sponge that we have previously rubbed with a little claystone.
The same goes for a mold-stained ceiling; cleaning it is not impossible!
If it is a ceiling painted with washable paint, one proceeds to cleaning with lukewarm water and baking soda or lukewarm water with white vinegar (more traces of mold are important, the less water you have to add). Same precaution: cut the power and protect the floor and furniture. The sponge of a telescopic broom is dipped in water with baking soda, then vigorously rubs its ceiling, proceeding in small areas. You then rinse your ceiling with clear water, always using the telescopic sponge broom. Finally, let the dry ceiling well by ventilating the room.
If it is a ceiling painted with non-washable paint, we prefer to use a damp sponge on which we have deposited a little baking soda. You rub the sponge on the mold stains before rinsing your ceiling with clean water and allowing it to dry.
What about a PVC paneled ceiling? The precautions to be taken are exactly the same as those for a ceiling painted with non-washable paint. No big cleaning with water; we use a damp sponge!
To prevent its ceiling from yellowing or molding, it should be maintained regularly, at least once a month. To do so, nothing could be simpler: you take a broom with soft bristles and wipe your ceiling without pressing. Then attach a clean microfiber cloth to the broom and wipe the ceiling again. Attention, to avoid traces, we think of changing the cloth as soon as it is gray/dirty.
To prevent yellowing of the ceiling, air your rooms every day and avoid as much as possible the smoke of tobacco, candles, fireplace, or even incense; they dirty and clog the ceiling!
To prevent mold from the ceiling, you ventilate your rooms every day and make sure that your damp rooms are equipped with ventilators. We also leave our doors open as much as possible. Finally, if the mold problem becomes recurrent, we do not hesitate to call a specialist who will diagnose the origin of the humidity problem and offer appropriate treatment.
