Maintaining exposed brick walls
Country Living has listed three steps on how to best protect your feature wall before it’s too late.
1) First to help protect against humidity make sure you apply a sealant or acrylic-based paint to the exposed brick and mortar.
2) When dusting be sure to use only microfiber cloths or better yet your vacuum’s brush attachment.
3) For a truly deep clean, they recommend mixing just a little water with equal parts salt and mild dishwashing or castile soap. Scrub the paste onto the wall with a stiff brush and let sit for ten minutes. To finish, use a wet sponge and bucket of water to rinse the homemade solution off the wall.
