Choosing to paint your house’s interior is a big deal. It can be a large investment of time and money, and you want to get the most out of your paint job. Maximizing your paint’s longevity is something anyone will want to do because it helps them get the most value for their hard work. The best way to raise longevity for your paint is to undergo the right maintenance procedures. Here are some maintenance suggestions we have that can help your interior paint last longer.
Clean Your House Twice Per Year
For many people, thoroughly cleaning the house may be an annual task. However, if you clean your house twice per year instead, you have an easier time keeping mold and fungus under control. You can use soapy cleansers and a brush with soft bristles to deal with pesky dirt and stains.
Stop Fading From Happening
Over time, your interior paint will start fading, especially whenever the paint you have suffers exposure from UV lights and dust. If you’re going to do interior painting, make sure you use high-quality paint. Paints with better quality have an easier time holding in their color. Also, be wary of whether or not your paint gets exposed to sunlight because this can accelerate the fading process. To minimize sun exposure, use high-quality window coverings, which will serve as a shield between your paint and the sun’s rays.
Have Your House Waterproofed
Waterproofing your home does wonders for the interior. If your home is not waterproofed, your painting project could be ruined completely, meaning you will have to do everything all over again. This only serves to waste valuable time and money, which is why we advise that you have your house waterproofed before starting a painting project.
If there is water damage along your home’s interior or exterior already, you should get all of that damage repaired ahead of time. Fortunately, many painting companies offer waterproofing options that you can use for your home.
Consider Using Washable Paints
It’s likely that your home will eventually have to deal with smudges, such as handprints, and the best way to deal with these smudges is to address them quickly. What’s great is that modern paint formulas have cross-linking polymers tech in them, which helps them to deal with very stubborn stains and retain the beauty of your home.
