How to Clean PVC Wall Panels

There are a whole host of benefits to installing wall panels, instead of tiling - as characteristically our collection of PVC wall panels are much more hard wearing, and unlike tiles, they're less likely to break or crack on impact. 

Whilst their stylish look and robust nature make PVC wall panels an excellent decorating alternative, they're also much easier to fit, clean and maintain. Keep reading our guide on how to properly clean and look after your PVC panels.

How to clean kitchen wall panels

A key benefit to using PVC panels in your kitchen is the ease in which they can be cleaned. 

The kitchen is a notoriously difficult area of the home to keep clean, with food splashes, grease and grime that comes with being one of the busiest areas of the home. Simply grab a clean soft cloth and bowl of soapy water and let’s get to work! Washing up liquid works a treat on your walls as much as it does when you’re washing dishes - a known compound that tackles grease and dirt in an instant. 

Make sure your chosen cloth isn’t abrasive and then lather up your cloth and start to gently rub your kitchen walls. If you spot any particularly grubby spots that may hold an extensive stain, allow the soapy water to penetrate the area for a good two to five minutes, to help break down any deposits. Continue with the rest of the area, making sure to keep rinsing out your cloth and changing your soapy water to keep it nice and clean.

On those difficult areas, once you’ve soaked the area for a few minutes, don’t be shy in giving it a good scrub - we find a circular motion works well. And then rinse down the panels, finishing with a clean dry rub of a microfibre cloth, checking for smears along the way. We advise investigating the kitchen area on a weekly basis, depending on just how much use and cooking your kitchen receives!

How to clean PVC wall panels in the bedroom

Your bedroom may not see quite as much grimy action as your kitchen, but it’s an area of the home that you want to keep fresh and clean, so that it makes going to sleep and getting a good night’s rest a pleasure and a heavenly place you can retreat to each evening.

You can use the same cleaning process as for the kitchen, with the non-abrasive cloth and clean soapy water but you’ll probably find that less scrubbing is needed and instead more attention placed on ensuring that the full area is covered equally and you complete the job smear-free.
