Albuquerque Paint Maintenance
Like anything else you own, how long your paint job lasts depends on how well it is cared for. To help keep your new paint looking great for years, follow these tips for paint maintenance:
Clean and inspect
To keep your Albuquerque home or business looking great inside or out, clean your surfaces regularly. Remove dirt and cobwebs using water or a mild soap and water solution. While you are cleaning, inspect your surfaces for signs of cracking, flaking, peeling, or other damage. Exposure to the elements can be especially damaging to wood.
Keep moisture out
Make sure seals around windows and doors are properly caulked to keep moisture from seeping in. If you see staining or drywall bubbling, find the cause of the water damage and repair it before the cosmetic fixes.
Settling is a natural process, but it can cause small cracks. Touching up the paint helps you mask signs of property aging. You’ll be able to match the color perfectly if the original paint is still good or you kept good records and can get the exact paint.
If you live in a house that was built before 1978, you may have lead-based paint in your home. If paint maintenance involves removing any flaking or peeling paint, doing this yourself could pose serious risk to you and your family.
