Interior Painting Tips – Professional Painting Tips and Tricks
Maintain Beautiful Interior Paint:
Everyone falls in love with their interior spaces once the walls have been freshly painted. But the infatuation wanes after a while because paint stains and colors fade. But this doesn’t have to be the case. Keep in touch here we are going to listed Interior Painting Tips.
There are some simple steps you can take to maintain your interior paint the way it should look: like new. In the following guide, we will detail some maintenance regimens that you can implement to keep your interior paint immaculate.
Avoid Paint Fading:
One of the most common problems that homeowners cite their interior paint is that it fades too quickly. Now there are a couple of reasons why this could happen. The first and most common is that inferior paint was used in the first place. Cheap paint will offer little resistance to fading and the colors will dim before they should.
The second most common culprit is UV fading. This problem can be a bit more of a challenge because chances are you aren’t a vampire and you will want natural light to shine in your rooms from time to time. But one good way to minimize UV fading is with curtains and blinds. Simply make sure to draw your curtains and blinds when you aren’t going to be in the room or don’t need the natural light.
But perhaps the most practical way to avoid UV fading is investing in window tint. Window tint film can be completely transparent which means you will get plenty of sunshine without the harmful UV effects on your paint. Plus, window tinting is very affordable compared to getting new curtains and blinds.
Keep an Eye on High-Traffic Areas:
Stains and marks can immediately mar a new interior paint job. We recommend keeping a close eye on high-traffic areas where walls tend to accumulate stains like hallways, children’s bedrooms, kitchen walls, and stairway walls.
And if you have small children or pets, it’s especially important that you keep a close eye on all wall lengths below your knees.
Safely Clean Paint:
The hope is to never encounter a stain that can’t be removed with a damp sponge and warm water. Keeping a close eye on high-traffic areas is important but make sure you take action as soon as you see a new spot or stain.
A sponge dampened with warm water should do the trick in most cases but if stains are being stubborn, try using a bit of dish soap and gently scrubbing at the stain.
Keep Humidity Low:
Do your best to keep the humidity low in your bathroom. If it has a window, open it often. If it has a fan, run it during and after showers. Mold and mildew can easily ruin your paint. If you do notice moderate mold or mildew growth, you may be able to clean it with a solution of one part bleach and four parts water. But severe mold growth should be handled by certified mold remediators.
Even the most diligent homeowners need a little help now and then. Keep your interior paint looking like new with our professional painting services here at Century Painting.
