Wall Washing Using the Flat Mop Method

This method is for nonporous or semi-porous wall surfaces. It differs from standard wall washing in that it uses the technology of flat mops made of microfiber.


  1. Clear room of furniture and/or lay down drop cloths.
  2. Prepare Smoke-Solv Liquid Wall Wash, diluted at 4-32 oz per gallon of water depending on severity of soil, into one flat mop bucket. Put clean water in another other bucket.
  3. Dust the walls with a wall duster
  4. Dip the flat mop head attached to the handle into the cleaning solution. Wring it out tightly. Work in 8' x 8' floor-to-ceiling area, applying the solution and scrubbing with the mop head as needed. Be sure to apply the solution from the bottom up.
  5. Wring out the mop head in a clean rinse solution and wipe off the surface with the head. If needed, dry the wall with a towel.
  6. Repeat these steps until all walls are finished.
