Caring For Carpet

  • Use mats at entrances and other areas to prevent outside dirt, and clean mats frequently.
  • Vacuum carpets often, and areas with higher foot traffic more often than others.
  • To uphold the manufacturer’s warranty, professional carpet cleaning is required by the manufacturer every 18 to 24 months, depending on the foot traffic. If you are using your own cleaner or renting, ensure the cleaning system is certified by the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI). You can find a list of approved devices here.
  • Spills and stains can be tricky and can require different types of cleanup. See pages 5-6 of this guide for best practices with different types of spills or stains.

Caring For Hard Surface (Hardwood, Laminate, Vinyl Tile, Ceramic)

  • Use felt protectors on furniture legs (not plastic or other materials).
  • Area rugs placed over your hard surface flooring should be relocated 2-3 times per month to avoid discoloration of the surface.
  • No hard surface is scratch-and-dent proof, so using proper protection techniques can minimize the wear and tear on your floor.
  • Clean spills immediately rather than letting them sit on your floor.
  • Use caution with the amount of water used on a hard surface floor. Using excess water, especially on hardwood or laminate, can get water in the joints of the material, causing it to expand and potentially cause irreparable damage. Instead, use a wet/dry sweeper. Note: “Wet Jets” or steam mops are not recommended as they can have the same effect as a mop and bucket, regardless of the claim of the product.
  • We recommend only using a Molyneaux-approved cleaning solution, which can be obtained from any Molyneaux showroom.

Caring For Interior Painting


Regardless of paint type or sheen, regular dusting is in order. So before you do any washing, run the dust brush attachment of your vacuum over ceilings and walls, and wipe your walls down with a tack cloth or cheesecloth.

General Washing:

  • Wait at least two weeks after painting before using any water or cleaner on your walls.
  • Typically, it’s best to use a soft cloth or sponge with mild, soapy water.
  • Wipe by applying gentle pressure in a circular motion.
  • Rinse with a clean, damp cloth afterward to remove any leftover cleaner. Too much water can ruin your
  • paint finish, so remember to thoroughly wring out your cloth.

Spot Cleaning:

For spot cleaning a scuff mark or stain, try mixing a paste of baking soda and water instead of cleaner for walls. Gently rub your solution over the problem area. Then rinse with a sponge. And dry with a soft cloth.

For hard-to-remove stains like grease splatters on kitchen walls, try a grease-cutting dishwashing soap mixed in warm water. Follow the label instructions to make sure the cleaner won’t harm your paint finish.

“Tip: It’s always a good idea to test your cleaning solution and technique to make sure it doesn’t damage your paint finish. Pick an inconspicuous spot on your wall to perform your test. If the paint still looks bright and there are no water marks left after drying, you’re good to go. ”


Follow these guidelines for nicks or scrapes in your walls that require touch-up painting.

  • If possible, use paint from the original can. If you need to buy more, make sure it’s the same color and the same sheen. If you’re touching up walls where the paint was originally applied with a roller, use a small trim roller. If the paint was originally brushed on, use a brush. Apply a small amount of your touch-up paint and gently roll or feather-brush the area.

Caring For Custom Cabinet Restyling & Painting

  • Begin by removing any loose dust or debris from the cabinets using a dry cloth.
  • Prepare a cleaning solution by mixing mild dish soap and warm water in a bucket or sink.
  • Dip a soft cloth or sponge into the cleaning solution, ensuring it is damp but not soaking wet. Wring out any excess water.
  • Gently wipe the cabinets with the damp cloth or sponge, avoiding excessive scrubbing or the use of abrasive cleaners or tools that could harm the paint. Do not leave any standing water on the cabinets.
  • Rinse the cabinets thoroughly with a clean damp towel, and dry them completely using a clean towel or microfiber cloth. Avoid allowing them to air dry.
  • Do not leave water or soap residue on the product, as chemicals or minerals may eventually compromise the protective coating and erode the finish.
