You generally invest a huge amount of money and effort on painting the walls
of your home. You choose various colours, patterns and wallpapers to decorate
the walls of your living space. In nut shell, this is a long term investment and
you expect the colour and pattern to stay for considerable amount of time. But
what if something spills on the walls? Children usually have the habit to scribble
on the walls with crayons or pencils, what can be done in that case?
The answers lie just below. Here are the major precautionary steps that can be
taken to help keep your house walls clean in different situations:
1. There are generally two sorts of stains: oil borne-and water borne.
Much of the time only a wet cloth removes the waterborne stains like wine,
Jell-O, ketchup, mustard, even crushed mosquitoes. For oily stains —
cooking oil, pastel, shoe shine, lipstick — you may need to tackle them with
a mellow dishwashing cleanser technique.
2. How can you remove the stains of a permanent marker?
In order to remove the stains of a permanent marker, all that you need to
do is use a dishwashing fluid and a wipe with a grating side. Get off as much
marker as you can, eventually that will lead to a scraped area that you’ll
have to repaint. Before you do, use stain-blocking primer over what is
left of the marker.
3. How can you remove the scratches or dents from chairs, strollers?
One the one hand you can introduce a defensive seat rail strip to protect
the wall from appearing a scratch and on the other hand for scars you can
do touch-ups with paint from the remaining jars. Make certain to smooth
out any scraped area previously, and keep your patches as small as possible.
For little fixes, stipple and spot on the paint. That will level out the shine and minimize the differences amongst new and old paint.
4. Paint that is easy to clean and most resistant to damage –
The latex content in a paint is determined by the extent of gloss or shine that it
imparts. A smooth surface opposes stains and water-trickle marks, since it
gives earth less places to gather. A glossy quality paint can be brilliant for walls
of living room and bedroom but they will be more prone to abrasion and will
require extensive maintenance. Semi-gloss paints are more suited for kitchens,
showers, trim, and entryways.
If these tips are followed, your walls can look as fresh as the day you
