Posted by Sam Sundeleaf on Tuesday, June 06, 2017
Now that you’ve invested in beautiful, professional interior painting, you'll want to care for your new colors just as well as possible. After all, as we’ve mentioned before, the key to any long-lasting interior or exterior update includes the following:
- High-end painting services
- Quality products
- Attention to detail
- Exceptional surface prep
- Ongoing maintenance
3 Ways to Keep Your Fresh Paint Looking Fresh
Here are a few practical tips to keep in mind:
- Avoid dings, marks, and smudges as much as possible. Adding a chair rail, wainscoting, or baseboards will help protect your walls, acting as an extra line of defense. Ideally, under the guidance of your painter, these types of surfaces should have been painted with a higher-gloss product too, providing durability and washable strength.
- Don’t let blemishes sit. If the unavoidable smudge rears its head, take proactive action. Here are a few essential tips for keeping your walls clean without damaging your beautiful finish.
- Keep touch-up paint close by. A delicate brush and a clearly-labeled can of leftover paint will eventually be invaluable. Take a look at these tips for a flawless touch-up, provided by the Paint Quality Institute.
And remember, a high-end painting company will be your maintenance ally. That’s part of the beauty of partnering with a true professional!
