During the coronavirus epidemic, it is not only important to keep your hands clean but also to regularly clean surfaces throughout the home.
We have updated our wall panel cleaning guide to help advise our customers how to clean bathroom wall panels and high traffic areas throughout the home.
Here is our 7-step guide to washing your panels
1| Grab a non-abrasive cloth or sponge, soapy water (washing-up liquid works a treat) & a bucket of warm soapy water
2| Start to apply a good lather of the warm soapy water all over your panels using your cloth
3| Allow the soapy water to soak into any specific marks or stains on the panels (for 2-5 minutes)
4| In the meantime replenish your warm soapy water bucket with fresh warm water & thoroughly rinse your cloth
5| As soon as the soap has had time to soak into the panels grab your cloth and give a good scrub making sure you are going in circular motions - rinsing the panels down
6| Finally wipe your panels with a dry microfibre cloth making sure that you are leaving no smears
7| On completion make sure that the cleaning cloth is put into the washing machine on a 60C wash
TIP - Whilst cleaning your bathroom take extra vigilance in specifically cleaning your toilet, taps & door handles with a strong disinfectant
How often should I do this?
Keeping your bathroom and high traffic areas in your home clean is crucial to help prevent the spread of bacteria and germs.
But how often should you be cleaning your bathroom? Every three days would be sufficient - however if you live in a city or work in the health care profession a daily cleanse would be advised throughout the high traffic areas of your home, at the end of the day once everyone has showered.
To avoid an accumulation of dirt and grime in the bathroom area one method is to ensure that surfaces are easy to wipe down and have very few hiding places for germs to attach themselves to - bathroom wall panels are very easy to clean, if you have tiles then please follow our guidance but we recommend you clean the grout lines thoroughly.
