You’ve picked the right color, you’ve hired a reliable team of professional painters to do the job, and you love the look of your new interior office paint job. Now you want to keep your walls looking like new for as long as possible. While all paint jobs have their expiration date, you can give yours the best chance for a long and beautiful lifespan with these tips to keep your paint job looking new.
CLEAN WALLS REGULARLY
You make sure the floors are vacuumed, tables are wiped off and the toilet bowl is cleaned weekly…but do you know the one area that is commonly neglected in most offices? The walls. Regularly wiping down walls with a wet rag or dusting them with a microfiber cloth is an excellent way to stop dirt and dust from building on your walls.
KEEP FURNITURE AWAY FROM THE WALL
Depending on the layout of your room it might be the best practice to keep furniture close to walls to for special needs and function. However, try your best to avoid setting up furniture and other items directly against the walls. Filing cabinets and desks can easily rub or chip at paint when pressed directly on the wall.
DRAW BLINDS TO PREVENT PAINT FROM FADING
One of the most unsightly damages to paint is inconsistent fading. Irregular fading takes place when one section is repeatedly exposed to direct sunlight. After a time, the sunlight starts to fade the section it has access to and creates a noticeable difference in color between that area and unexposed areas.
HANDLE MOISTURE ISSUES FAST
One of the fastest ways to ruin your paint and create damage to your building is to ignore moisture issues. At the first sign of a leak, you should have a local roofer examine the damage and determine the cause. A small leak can quickly turn into mold and ceiling damage. Don’t let moisture ruin your paint job.
One of the best ways to make sure your paint job looks like new is to hire experienced professional painters. If you are interested in a commercial interior or exterior painting quote gives Texas Professional Painting a call.
