PermaTone Venetian Plasters are designed to resist dirt pick up 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 - Venetian plasters are high profile, premium decorative, artistic coatings. As such, abrasive cleaners and vigorous scrubbing will damage their appearance. For general cleaning we recommend a light mixture of water with a mild dishwashing detergent and soft cloth. Gentle rubbing should remove most accumulated pollutants.

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 and appearance. Venetian Plasters have absorbent surfaces and some stains may not be repairable without a reapplication of the finish.

Repair - In the event of minor damage for knocks or nicks in the wall that have penetrated the finish, use a small trowel or soft cloth to brush the original finish into the scratched area to fill the color. Once dry use a mild rubbing action with a soft cloth to blend texture and appearance. You may obtain a small amount of the original finish. Using a small spackling knife or blade fill in the scratched area and trowel into the original finish to blend color and texture.

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 alchohal based cleansers; harsh scrubbing, rough cleaning materials, i.e. sponges, abrasive pads, etc.,
