Cleaning Your MAS MICROCEM Decorative Paint

To keep MAS MICROCEM looking beautiful, clean any spills or stains right away. You can usually wipe walls with warm water.

Floors may need more cleaning than walls. Mild, soapy water is typically enough.

Blend some liquid detergent or soap into a bucket of clean water. Use only a small amount of detergent to avoid leaving residue.

Work methodically, starting from the top of the area to be cleaned. You can use a soft cloth or sponge. For more stubborn stains, you can use a very soft bristle brush.

A low-pressure garden mist sprayer is also an option. A sprayer is best for outdoor use, though. It can be hard to control indoors.

Wipe MAS MICROCEM with a soft, clean cloth or towel when you’re finished cleaning it. This helps prevent the cleaning solution from drying on the surface.

Avoid Harsh Cleaning Products

Harsh cleaning products can damage MAS MICROCEM. Avoid abrasive cleaners and any products that contain ammonia. Industrial-strength cleaners and strong solvents may damage the surface.

You should also avoid using heavy scrubbing products like scouring pads and steel wool.

Test the Cleaning Solution First

MAS MICROCEM resurfacing finish is durable. Mild detergents shouldn’t affect the finish.

However, the surface may soften slightly and the colour may fade somewhat with strong detergent concentrations. Before using any cleaning solution, test it on an inconspicuous area. This helps ensure your MAS MICROCEM will stay clean and beautiful.

Preventing Scratches and Other Damage

Preventing scratches and other damage to MAS MICROCEM minimises the need for cleaning and maintenance.

Avoid pulling heavy items on the floor surface. Sharp objects can cause scratches. Try to prevent furniture from bumping into the walls.

Repairing MAS MICROCEM Decorative Finish

When damage occurs, you can try to touch up the MAS MICROCEM. Making touch-ups unnoticeable can be a challenge, though.

If the surface you’re repairing has cracks or more severe damage, use a putty filler before repainting. You can also use the MAS MICROCEM base to patch cracks or holes.

After the putty dries, sand it carefully. You need the surface to be level with the original.

Use paint from the same can that was used originally. You should dilute the decorative finish with water by 5%-10%. Apply the MAS MICROCEM with a trowel using the same pattern as the original.

The edges of the newly-repainted area are especially difficult to disguise. You can use a squeegee to help cover them. If the repaired area is too visible, repainting the entire wall may be the best option.
