Doing a little preventative maintenance is a great way to keep your walls looking like they were painted yesterday! As suggested in the Hometriangle article on taking care of painted surfaces, dry cleaning your walls with a cloth wrapped around a broom occasionally will remove loose dirt and dust and prevent it from settling in and staining the paint permanently. A light wet cleaning with a sponge dipped in a diluted solution of mild all purpose cleaner and water is also a good way to make your walls sparkle. That said, different paint types can respond differently to different cleaning methods, and using an appropriate cleaning method may actually help you avoid damaging your paint job.
