advise me on how to cleaned these walls, they are pretty dirty thru age and
dust and mildew thank you Graeme QLD Australia
What have you used thus far to clean them? A veneer, even faux brick, is
only glued on so you'll want to make sure that the chemical doesn't leach
through to the back and dissolve (or worse) the adhesive.
If it's white, that makes it even tougher because some chemical reactions
will also "yellow" the white.
I'd start by testing a small - inconspicuous - area with simple dish soap
(Ajax, Joy, grocery store brand) and hot water; scrub it with a nylon
vegetable brush. If it's dirt and dust, the soap will also cut through any
grease and tar from cigarettes (if that was also an issue). See how the
small area does. If you think the white is better looking, move to a larger
If you have a carpet and tile place around where you live, they might also
have a product for cleaning veneer brick.
