Pro Tips to Keep Your Paint Job Looking Great

Painting Doors, Shutters, and Trim

One way to extend the life of your professional paint job is by creating a strict cleaning schedule. Make sure to regularly dust and vacuum any painted surfaces in your home, especially those near windows or vents as dirt can easily accumulate on these surfaces. It’s also important to keep an eye out for moisture damage, as this can occur from leaks or condensation and cause the paint to deteriorate over time. If you notice any water stains or discoloration of the paint, make sure to contact a professional immediately.

Using the Clorox Magic Eraser can also help keep your paint job looking great. This cleaner can be used on most painted surfaces and can help remove stains without damaging the paint underneath. Additionally, it’s always a good idea to use mild detergents when cleaning painted walls as harsher chemicals could strip away the protective layer of the paint over time.

Another tip for preserving your professional paint job is investing in quality supplies when it comes time for touch-ups. This means using high-quality primer, paint, and brushes rather than cheaper alternatives which tend to have less coverage and give an uneven finish. Additionally, when touching up any chips or cracks on the wall, make sure to paint both the affected area and an area slightly larger than it to ensure a consistent color.

Finally, you should avoid using abrasive cleaners or harsh chemicals when cleaning painted surfaces in your home as this can damage the paint over time. Stick with mild soaps and warm water instead, and use a soft cloth or sponge to gently clean the surface. With careful maintenance, you can maintain a professional paint job for many years.
