Preserve Your Paints

Paint is a wonderful thing for a homeowner. It instantly revitalizes and adds character to a room, whether you’re moving in or just mixing things up. You want to keep your paint looking as fresh as possible since it is such a design element, but paint can play host to stain-causing bacteria, mold and mildew — things no homeowner wants to see on their bedroom walls. Read ahead for tips on keeping your paint pristine.

Simple Solution

First, always paint on a clean surface. Existing mold or mildew will make its way through a new coat of paint and can continue to grow. Once you’ve painted, you can usually spot clean areas with a clean, wet cloth.

Second, keep your home at 50% humidity or lower, if possible, all day long. This can be accomplished by running your air conditioner or using a dehumidifier.


Best Solution

By combining these tips with the use of a paint containing antimicrobial properties, you are using the best solution available to fight against stain-causing bacteria, mold and mildew growth on painted surfaces. When possible, use a primer before painting for extra protection.
