How do I clean Dumawall?

Dumawall can be cleaned using a damp microfiber cloth with common household detergents. If you are unsure on the cleaning agent, apply a small amount or contact us. We do not recommend abrasive cleaning agents as it will damage the surface.

How do I store Dumawall tiles and panels?

It is important that they are stored flat and horizontally. Before installing Dumawall tiles and panels, ensure they are sitting flat for at least 48hrs.

Why is part of the tongue or groove chipped off the panels? Are my panels defective?

The panels are not defective. During manufacturing, one corner of the overlap lip is intentionally milled off. This is to provide enough space for the four corners to fit together when four panels are connected. The milled tongue or groove does not impact the product performance or finished look.

Are Dumawall panels scratch resistant?

Yes, there is a durable, UV-cured, protective polyurethane layer on the surface of the panels. This wear- and-scratch-resistant layer will prevent moderate abuse. The tiles are intended as a wall product, however, and can be scratched by sharp objects or dented by blunt force. Dumawall tiles have better wear and scratch resistance than most wall treatments, such as painted drywall or panelling. Panels should be cleaned with household or mild commercial cleaners that do not contain abrasives.
