To get rid of ceiling dust, a vacuum cleaner with soft brush tip can also be used. So that you will not scratch the ceiling, the vacuum cleaner’s tip should be kept at a small distance from the surface of the ceiling.
If your ceiling is too dirty, you might want to opt for manual cleaning. It will require a sturdy table or a ladder. The cleaning method you use will depend on the surface of the ceiling.

Any water contact with this kind of water-based paint might only cause blotchiness and stains. Thus, dry cleaning will be suitable for this type of ceiling.

Just dissolve the detergent in water then wipe it on the ceiling with a cloth or sponge soaked in the solution. To avoid leaving any water blotches or stains on the ceiling, wipe it thoroughly using a clean and dry cloth.
