Blog Expert Tips for Maintaining Your Freshly Painted Walls From B&J Painting LLC Apr 07, 2024

Congratulations on your freshly painted walls! Now that you have invested in a professional painting service from B&J Painting LLC, it is important to maintain the beauty and durability of your walls. Here are some expert tips to help you keep your walls looking fresh for years to come.

1. Regularly Clean Your Walls Dust, dirt, and grime can build up on your walls over time, affecting the appearance of the paint. To prevent this, make sure to regularly dust your walls with a soft microfiber cloth or a duster. For tougher stains, you can use a damp cloth with a mild soap solution to gently wipe the surface. Avoid using harsh cleaners or abrasive scrubbers as they can damage the paint.

2. Avoid Moisture and Humidity Excessive moisture and humidity can cause paint to bubble, peel, or crack. To prevent this, be mindful of the humidity levels in your home. Use a dehumidifier if necessary, especially in rooms like bathrooms, kitchens, and basements. In addition, avoid hanging wet items on the walls and quickly address any leaks or water damage to prevent moisture from seeping into the paint.

3. Touch Up When Necessary Even with proper care, walls can still get scuffed, scratched, or chipped over time. To maintain the appearance of your walls, keep some extra paint from your B&J Painting LLC project for touch-ups. Store the paint in a cool, dry place and make sure to mix it well before applying. Use a small brush or roller to touch up the affected areas, blending the paint seamlessly with the existing finish.

4. Protect Your Walls To prevent accidental damage to your walls, implement protective measures in high-traffic areas or areas prone to wear and tear. Consider installing chair rail molding, wainscoting, or wall guards to shield the walls from furniture, pets, and other potential hazards. You can also use removable wall decals or wallpaper in children's rooms to protect the walls from crayons, markers, and other creative mishaps.

5. Schedule Regular Inspections Lastly, make it a habit to inspect your walls periodically for any signs of damage or wear. Look for cracks, peeling paint, discoloration, or mold growth. If you notice any issues, address them promptly to prevent further damage and ensure the longevity of your freshly painted walls.
