For cleaning ceilings:

Use a cobweb broom/brush.

run through the edges. Some cobwebs are not easily visible.

  1. Dust the ceiling surface with long-handles dusters.
  2. Vacuum dirt-prone areas around vents and light fixtures. Use a vacuum

cleaner with a long extension fitted with a soft brush tip to avoid spreading

the dust around.

Use a wet sweeper.

  1. For painted ceilings that are dirty or oily, especially in the kitchen,

use a wet sweeper that has been pre-treated to clean out dust and

grime. As a substitute, use a sponge mop dipped in a mild solution

of all-purpose cleaner and water. Wring the mop to minimize

dripping. Dry the wet ceiling with rags or towels to minimize water


  1. For washable wallpapered ceilings, use a sponge mop dipped in a mild

solution of dishwashing detergent and water. Wring the mop to minimize

dripping, and immediately wipe ceiling dry with a rag or towel.

  1. For "popcorn" and other spray-on textured ceilings, refrain from any wet or

wipe-down cleaning, which would knock down the texture effect. Use a

vacuum cleaner with a long extension fitted with a soft brush tip.

Commercial textured ceiling cleaners are available.


For cleaning walls:

  1. Begin by lining the floor with plastic where you’ll be working to prevent

damage from excess water or spills.

  1. Use your vacuum’s brush attachment to remove loose dirt and cobwebs. Do

leave marks. Allow the vacuum’s suction to lift the dirt away from the wall.

  1. Spot test the all purpose cleaner or detergent in a hidden spot for

  2. Work your way through the room, using the towel to dry the walls as you go.

the tile.

  2. Fill another bucket with water to rinse the floor.
