Interior paint

Dirt and dust are the enemy of your painted walls. You can combat them by spot cleaning your walls. Look at different high traffic areas of your home that may be touched often or areas that can get knocked into by children or pets.

When you find a spot or stain, use this technique:

·      Dampen a clean, soft sponge with mild detergent and warm water.

·      Lightly clean the area in circular motions.

·      Use a clean sponge dampened with water to rinse the wall.

·      Pat the area dry with a lint- free cloth.

Cleaning spots and stains immediately will keep your paint job looking fresh and new for longer.

Exterior paint

Maintaining the beauty of a paint job isn’t just for the inside of your home. An exterior paint job needs some upkeep as well. The elements can affect your paint job and make your home look dull.

Using a power washer on the exterior of your home will blast away dirt and grime that has built up.

It is important to also check the exterior of your home for mold or mildew build up. Not only is this harmful to your health but also to your paint. It can eat away at your beautiful paint.
