PermaTone finishes are designed for low maintenance and will resist
pick up of dirt, stains and airborne pollutants. However depending
on location, proximity to traffic and the quality of air around the
finish some maintenance may be useful.
General Cleaning - Castello
is a premium translucent glaze used to accent PermaTone finishes or
used alone for decorative faux finishes. As such, most abrasive cleaners
and vigorous scrubbing may damage their appearance. For general cleaning
we recommend a soft wet cloth. When used alone over interior drywall
gentle rubbing with Formula 409 or similar cleaner should remove most
accumulated pollutants. QuartzSilco and QuartzMural are very durable
low maintenance finishes. They utilize specialty resins and mineral
pigments to form a tight matrix that resists most stain absorption
and allows for easy cleaning. General scheduled maintenance and cleaning
can be accomplished with a mixture of clean water and a mild detergent
such as TSP and a cotton cloth or soft bristle brush. Always remove
excess detergent using a damp cloth or cotton mop.
Spot Cleaning or Staining:
- Occasional spills such as coffee, juice, dirty water, may be cleaned
using the methods described above. Water staining may be removed with
mild rubbing action with a soft cloth to blend with original texture
Repair - In the event
of minor abrasions, knocks or nicks in the wall that have damaged
the finish, use a rag, sponge, crumpled paper or soft cloth to brush
some of the original finish into the scratched area to fill in color
If the drywall is damaged contact your local PermaTone distributor
for proper repair/replacement of the wallboard and affected PermaTone
finish. Follow instructions on PermaTone's application bulletin.
Avoid - Abrasive, acidic
and alcohol based cleansers; harsh scrubbing, rough cleaning materials,
i.e. sponges, abrasive pads, etc.,
