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.
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.
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.
Out of the Can Protection
Davis Paint products with Microban antimicrobial technology give your paint coatings an added level of defense against damaging microbes. Infrequently cleaned surfaces and humidity throughout areas in the home can create hot spots for microbes. Microban has proven antimicrobial technologies that can help keep paint cleaner and fresher over its lifetime by inhibiting the growth of stain and odor causing bacteria, mold and mildew.
Incorporated into the paint coating during manufacturing, Microban protection works continuously to keep painted surfaces in the home cleaner, fresher and looking beautiful for longer than ever before. And because Microban technology is infused into the paint during the manufacturing process, it won’t wash off or wear away for protection that lasts the useful life of the coating.
