I got a phone call today to clean a dentist office. I went there and it is 2600 sq/ft with 4 offices, 1 waiting area, 1 receptionist desk and one large area where the dentist works on patients. They would like all the walls wiped and the trim. I have spot wiped walls but never an entire building. What is good to use on this as in cleaning products, rags and any tools that may make it faster. I want to make sure that i do not leave streaks on the walls. They just had new CGD put in and say the walls are cover in dust from this. Any tips would be great if you have done this in the past.

I've use flat micro fiber mops. And with swivel makes walls much easier and faster.

Just watch cable when vacuuming my tech few years back ran over a USB cable worth oh around $12k used for portable X-rays

Unsmoke™ Wall Wash with Biosolv®
We use this stuff with micro fiber towels on a chem pole. This is made for smoke and fire but will work well on what you need it for too.

Wall Washing
The walls in homes and offices don’t normally need much attention. The occasional smudge or splatter can usually be wiped up with warm, soapy water and gentle rubbing from a clean, damp towel or magic eraser product. Most dust and dirt can be removed with a high-quality feather or microfiber duster.

However, when the walls in your facility are covered with soot, smoke, grease, or water stains, they may benefit from a thorough washing. Washing walls prior to re-painting can also help the paint and/or primer adhere better.

TIPS FOR WALL WASHING:
  • Always test cleaning methods and products in an inconspicuous spot (such as the back of a closet) before cleaning to ensure you won’t remove paint or damage the wall.
  • Clear your work area. Remove all electric cords. Move or cover furniture to prevent damage from drips or splashes. Lay down a drop cloth to protect carpet and prevent stains.
  • Begin by removing loose dirt and cobwebs from the wall surface with a vacuum or clean, dry cloth. Cleaning without removing these will result in creating and spreading mud/dirt across the surface.
  • Always start at the bottom of the wall and work your way to the top. While it may seem counterintuitive, it’s easier to clean drips off a clean wall than a dirty one.
  • Overlap the cleaning areas to prevent streaks.
  • Walls that are painted with a gloss or semi-gloss paint generally respond well to cleaning.
  • Walls with a flat paint generally respond well to spot cleaning. If the entire surface is dirty, it is better to simply repaint the wall, rather than waste time and money cleaning it.

@Scott W I was going to recommend Hardpower, did Bridgepoint discontinue it? I don't see it on the Interlink site.

Hard Power was improved and renamed to position it more toward restoration industry. The new imporved Hard Pwoer is now called Omni Pro Fire Power - http://interlinksupply.com/index.php?item_num=CR403GL Great for smoke and soot removal.

For general cleaning of walls, OmniPro Vission is the product you want.
