Having a beautiful home is a dream and dream for everyone. One of the most important things in the element of beauty is the color of paint on each wall of the building.
Usually, wall paint on the outside of the house can be damaged faster, such as the color fading or peeling due to exposure to sunlight and rain. Even climate change can also cause mold to appear on the walls of the house due to humid or wet temperatures.
Therefore, to minimize the paint color fading, here are some tips that can be done.
Clean the surface of the wall you want to paint first
Before starting to paint, make sure the walls are clean and that there are no stains or thick dust attached. The presence of dirt can make the paint not stick properly so it is prone to peeling.
And if the wall is already mossy, flush with chlorine water so that the fungus seeds on the wall die. After that, you can only start painting when the walls are dry.
How to apply paint on walls
coat the walls first with a light paint. Then when it will dry, coat the paint again. It aims to make the paint color stronger and longer lasting.
Also, try not to paint when the weather is cloudy. Because if it rains, the water will hit the wall paint and seep into the wall. If it is like that, the water will be difficult to come out because it is blocked by the paint. As a result, the walls will become damp and cause stains and cracks in the paint caused by the paint not sticking well.
Adjust Paint to Wall Material
The paint used for ordinary walls will certainly be different from the paint used for wooden or natural stone walls. Wall paint usually has a thicker texture than stone or wood wall paint so that the cement layer underneath is not visible.
Those are some tips that can be done to make your house paint more durable and still beautiful. With the beauty of house paint that can reflect the life in the house, of course it will make you more comfortable in occupying it.
