How to Maintain Painted Walls

Get a fresh coat of paint on your walls, wait for it to dry, and call it a day… right? Well, not exactly – at least not if you want your walls to keep looking great years down the line.

It might surprise you to learn that your home maintenance needs to extend to your painted walls.

Here are some basic tips that can get you started.

Trimming your trees and shrubs – a service that most painting contractors can help you with – is a great place to start. This is a relatively simple, straightforward way to clean things up.

Some level of dirt and grime is inevitable, but cleaning your exterior walls can at least keep it to a minimum. Just scrub down the surface with a cloth, and rinse with clean water when you’re done and let it dry. Try to do this at least semi-regularly to reduce the chance of any damage to the paint.

Small Touch Ups

If you do an inspection and realize there’s been some wear and tear, don’t worry too much. You can cover small damaged areas and imperfections either on your own or with the help of professionals. Small touch ups are generally pretty affordable, and can save you a ton of hassle if you aren’t sure about your skills as a handyman.

These small chores can make a big difference when it comes to the longevity of your exterior paintwork. If you think you need help getting started, or have questions we didn’t answer here, give Ireland’s Finest a call today.
