How to vacuum and clean ceiling

Thursday, May 21st, 2009

During cleaning walls and ceiling important thing is to prepare the proper rag, which collects dust, and not move it from place to place. You need to use the soft rag, wash it and after rinsing with water you should put it into the water with the addition of glycerol ( two table spoons of glycerol and four cups of water). Squeeze it and leave it to dry up.

Use this rag to wrap the rubber brush and sweep the ceiling in a direction perpendicular to the window. In this way - if any traces of the sweeping will be less visible.

If you find out that the paint on the ceiling starts to peel, don’t panic and don’t call the painters. Let’s try to deal with this evil itself first. In this case you need to prepare the alum solution ( five table spoons of alum and four cups of water ) and immerse the painting roller and drag it around the ceiling.

Apartments in older houses may have some ceilings decorated with molding, where the dust settling. Put the solution of the potato slurry with cold water, and after drying, gently clean with soft brush. If molding is not very dirty, just clean up using vacuum cleaner with a small round brush.
