How to Extend the Life of Your Paint

So you just hired GLS Painters for an interior or exterior paint job (if you didn’t, it’s not too late!). Now you’re probably wondering: how long will this paint last? Is there anything I can do to maximize the life of it?

The answer to the latter is yes! There are a few different things you can do to extend the life of your paint. You’ve come to the right place to learn all of the best methods – check out these four tips!

  1. Keep interior walls free of dust. Dust can accumulate on your walls at times – wipe them down with a soft cloth once in a while to prevent any damage to your paint.
  2. Power wash the exterior of your home. Mold, dirt, and dust can collect in your exterior paint over time, most likely due to you mowing your lawn and all of the dirt flying around. Power washing can do more than just keep your paint looking fresh and new; it can also extend the life of it.
  3. Get rid of fingerprints ASAP. Fingerprints may seem miniscule in the big picture, but trust us, you want to wipe them off of your walls as soon as you notice them.
  4. Fight fading paint before it actually happens. Choose a high quality paint right off the bat, you’ll thank yourself later for spending the extra cash upfront rather than more extra cash on re-painting.

Now that you know just how to maintain your interior and exterior surfaces, you can be sure that your paint will be durable and long-lasting!
