ceiling cleaning

Our monty is a year and a half old with us as full timers.

I have a little tan colored deposits on my ceiling. They seem to be on the seem strips that run side to side across the ceiling. And they seem to be near roof vents, like in the vicinity of the Fantastic Fan in the high point before the steps to the bedroom.

They are very stubborn and immune to plain water rubbing. I am concerned with using detergents, a bleech pen or other stuff that might discolor the ceiling.

ANyone have experience with this? Your advice please.

Gene, I wonder if you could use one of the Oxyclean products. They seem to be less harmful to the items being cleaned. Maybe try a small test spot first. Good luck.

Just got done cleaning ours. We used Awsome to clean ours. In spots that were real bad we used it full strength, no problems doing that. Took us 2 days to do the whole trailer. worse spots were at the seams where they put nails or staples.

Lawrence,
I noticed the spots at the staple heads, too. But also just on the strips or next to them. Thanks for the info on Auwsome.

When Keystone stained the wood trim they got some stain on the ceilng. I thought it would be impossible to get it off but Z tried the Mr. Cleam eraser and it worked great. YOu amy want to try that.

Another problem with manufactured homes and RVs is the glue used for the wall board will turn yellow after a year or so - you may even be able to identify which old world craftsmen worked on it by the yellow fingerprints if they were not careful!!
