Cleaning Wall Coverings and Office / Cubicle Partitions – Orange County CA


  • Office partitions, also called wall partitions, room dividers or wall coverings, are textile surfaced walls and partitions.
  • There are two types of installation: adhesive or stretch wall (Fabric-trak® acoustical wall covering and ceiling panel system).
  • The materials used are essentially upholstery fabrics and, therefore, are cleaned pretty much the same as a sofa or suite.
  • If a partition, they may have a cardboard backing behind the textile and extreme caution must be exercised when cleaning to avoid over-wetting.
  • Additionally, the wall covering may have been applied using a water-soluble adhesive!
  • DO NOT get the cardboard or adhesive wet!
  • Most of the textiles used are olefin and nylon.

Steps in cleaning wall coverings and office partitions:

  1. Check if there is any literature about the wall covering or if anyone knows the material of construction, type of adhesive used, etc.
  2. Brush dry stains off with a nylon bristled brush VERY carefully.
  3. Vacuum with an upholstery attachment for removal of dry dirt and grime.
  4. If a relatively smooth surface, the wall covering can probably be wet-cleaned.
  5. Pretest for dye stability. If possible, check for effect on the adhesive.
  6. Lightly mist Preface® at 1:10 where necessary.
  7. Using your upholstery tool only, wet-extract the wall covering, working from the bottom up to the top. This helps reduce streaking from cleaning solution running down on un-cleaned vertical surfaces.
  8. Apply Brown Out®.
  9. Apply DuPont™ Advanced Teflon™ Carpet and Upholstery Protector.
