Now that you have got your home painted by Sydney professionals, you will need to keep it well-maintained. For that, you will need to follow some expert suggestions. And today, we will be presenting them to you.
The methods discussed here are easy to follow. But if you want to know more, contacting professional painters is what you have to do. Anyway, let us now get into the points.
Washing Your House
Occasional washing of your home helps extend the life of the new paint. You will need to clear the surface contaminants, dirt, air pollutants, pollens, bird droppings, mould, etc. to retain the appearance of your home. So, as suggested by expert residential painters in Sydney, you will have to call professionals to wash your house.
To wash the exterior surface, the professionals will use a soft scrub brush or sponge with a mild solution of soapy water. But if mildew growth has taken place, bleach might be used but not pressure washing since the latter can damage the new paint.
Since the paint will deteriorate with time, due to sunlight wind exposure and other weather effects, you will need to invest your time, and perhaps money on touch-ups. Well, you will not have to spend a ton of money, but if you indeed want to retain the appearance of your home, this process will be required.
Generally, you can invest in the touch up once a year or two. It will not take much time and can even do it yourself. But if you can’t do it all by yourself, get it done by professionals carrying out residential painting in Sydney.
However, before the touch-ups, make sure that you have the exact paint colour ready. Else, buy one and store it in a cool place.
Clean the Roof and Gutters
Keeping your roof and gutters clean is very important if you want to retain the appearance of your home. For this, however, you will need to call professionals who provide gutter cleaning.
Leaks on your roof can damage the exterior paint because the water will seep through the area and affect the walls. It will lead to excessive moisture can give rise to stains and growth of mould on the surface.
Apart from the roof or the gutters, the windows, vents and doors can have leak points as well. This happens due to the caulk that can crack or split over time. Naturally, water will leak from these areas and can damage your interior as well as exterior paint. So, it’s better to get caulking done by a professional on a yearly basis.
Similar to that of caulking, home painters in Sydney also recommend wood sealing once a year.
This will block the leakage on the surface of the wood on the home interior. That way, you can keep the interior and the exterior paint in good shape.
