The ceiling is one of the parts of the home that is always seen but rarely cleaned. The nature of tops makes them somewhat difficult to clean. Unfortunately, ceilings get dirty and unsightly when covered in dust or other stains. Fortunately, by removing dust, cleaning with a roller, and learning how to treat specific stains, cleaning your ceiling will make cleaning easier.
Vacuum the ceiling.
All you have to do is take the vacuum cleaner and slide it softly over the ceiling floor. Depending on the type of vacuum you have, you may be able to suck up a considerable amount of dust before trying anything else.
· Use a bristle brush attachment or one designed for surfaces that scratch easily.
· Extend the telescoping shaft of the vacuum if you have one.
· Pay special attention to the corners, the meeting point between the crown molding and the ceiling, and the areas around the vents.
Use a feather duster.
Take the duster and run it side to side over the ceiling's entire surface to remove dust. Make sure to get as much dust and debris off the top as possible.
· You may need to clean or shake the duster if the ceiling is filthy. It can help to vacuum it a couple of times while cleaning the ceiling.
· Attaching a microfiber accessory to the duster will collect more dust and is less likely to scratch the ceiling.
Clean dirty areas with a dry microfiber cloth.
If there are parts of the ceiling that are too dirty, you may need to use a dry microfiber cloth to clean them. Take the fabric and gently shake or rub the area.
· Avoid applying too much pressure to avoid spreading dirt or dust on the ceiling.
· Get a new cloth once the one you are using is foul.
· If you can't reach the ceiling, use a chair, ladder, or broom and put the microfiber cloth on the end.
Create a cleansing mix.
While various cleaning solutions can help you clean your ceiling, you should create a specific solution that will not damage paint, tiles, trim, and other surfaces. To create a cleaning solution:
Mix one cup of warm water with one teaspoon of non-abrasive dishwashing liquid and two tablespoons of white vinegar.
Pour the mixture into a spray bottle.
Shake the spray bottle vigorously.
Spray the ceiling.
Take the bottle and spray the ceiling. Make sure to cover it entirely, as you may notice stains on the roof if you don't.
Avoid soaking the ceiling surface.
You've probably sprayed too much solution if it starts to drip.
Use a paint roller to clean the ceiling.
Find a large paint roller, moisten it with water, and roll it across the ceiling. Do it consistently so that you can completely cover the roof.
If you have a textured ceiling, try a tapping motion rather than a rolling motion.
Make sure to remove all the vinegar and dishwasher solution that you sprayed on the ceiling.
Dry the ceiling.
After you have used the roller, take a clean cloth, and gently dry the ceiling. The fabric will absorb the water and the remaining cleaning solution.
· Make sure the ceiling is clean before drying it. If it isn't, you run the risk of spreading dirt and further staining the roof.
· If you have trouble reaching the ceiling, get a long-handled paint roller or attach it to the handle of a broom.
To remove the pencil marks, Use an eraser.
If you have pencil marks or similar marks on the ceiling, you may be able to use an eraser to remove them. Just take the eraser and rub it gently against the effects on the roof.
· An eraser will work best on pencil marks and might even work on a colored pencil or ballpoint marks.
· Use a large eraser so you can remove larger stains more easily.
Try baking soda to remove stains.
As with stains elsewhere, baking soda is beneficial in removing stains from ceilings. Create a paste and spray it on the roof over the colors. Mix well two tablespoons of baking soda with two tablespoons of water.
· Let the paste sit on the stain for a few minutes.
· Clean the paste in a circular motion.
Apply trisodium phosphate to the soot stains.
Buy it from a home improvement store and mix a little with a small amount of water. This should create a thick paste. Use a brush to apply the paste to the stained area.
· Use only what is necessary to cover the stain.
· Follow the manufacturer's instructions printed on the product packaging.
· Wear goggles or other safety gear.
· Place a plastic sheet or cardboard box under the stain so the product doesn't damage the floor.
· Avoid damaging asbestos ceiling tiles or ceiling tiles that may contain this material. If your home was built before 1978, you might want to consult an environmental testing service to determine if your roof contains asbestos.
· Try to wear safety glasses when spraying the ceiling to avoid getting a cleaning solution in your eyes.
· Make sure to turn off the ceiling fan before you start .
