Care Instructions for Modern, Digital Wallpaper

Printable wallcoverings are a staple in both commercial and hospitality settings. Ensuring these wallpapers maintain their pristine condition involves consistent care and a certain degree of planning.

Cleaning and Maintenance

Routine Cleaning

For general upkeep, it’s recommended to use a mild soap diluted in warm water. Use a soft cloth or sponge to gently clean the surface, starting from the bottom and moving upwards. This method helps prevent dirt from becoming embedded in the textured surface of the wallpaper.

After cleaning, rinse the wall from top to bottom with clean water to avoid leaving behind any soapy residue. Dry the surface with a soft, lint-free cloth to prevent any water spots from forming.

Avoiding Damage:

It is crucial to avoid harsh chemicals, abrasive scrubbing tools, and solvent-based cleaners, as these can cause irreparable damage to the vinyl surface, such as fading, discoloration, or even breakdown of the vinyl itself.

When using new soaps, always conduct a patch test in a hidden area to ensure it does not adversely affect the wallcovering. Apply the cleaner sparingly with a soft cloth, dabbing gently rather than scrubbing.

Protective Measures to Extend Lifespan

Topcoat Applications:

To significantly enhance the durability of Dreamscape wallcoverings, consider applying a protective topcoat. This topcoat acts as a barrier against scratches, moisture, and other environmental factors that could degrade the wallcovering over time. Suitable for on-site application, these topcoats can make the wallcoverings easier to clean and maintain.

UV Protection:

While our digital wallcoverings are printed with UV-resistant inks, additional UV protective measures can be beneficial, especially in spaces with high exposure to sunlight. UV protective films or additional UV inhibiting topcoats can prevent the vibrant colors from fading over time.

Maximize Longevity with Strategic Installation and Care

Proper Installation:

Ensure that Dreamscape wallcoverings are installed on well-prepared, smooth, and clean surfaces. Proper adhesion can prevent issues like peeling or bubbling, which compromise both the appearance and durability of the wallcovering. Employing a professional installer who has experience with vinyl materials can lead to better outcomes and longevity.

Environmental Considerations:

Maintain a stable environment where the wallcoverings are installed. Extremes of temperature and humidity can adversely affect vinyl, causing it to expand, contract, or lose adhesion. Use climate control solutions where possible to maintain an optimal environment for the wallcoverings.

Regular Inspections:

Conduct regular inspections to catch and address issues early. Look for signs of wear and tear such as lifting edges, cracks, or color fading. Early detection can allow for timely interventions, such as edge sealing or partial replacement, which can prevent more extensive damage.
