There are many reasons why paints stain. Sometimes the wall is painted in a low-sheen paint. In many cases, the paint is on a porous surface or applied without a primer. From food items to paintbrushes and cosmetics, there are a wide variety of things that could cause unsightly stains on your walls.
Are you sick and tired of removing ugly stains from your walls? Switch to stain-resistant paint. As a company in Sonoma County who specializes in new construction and subdivision painting, we stand behind stain-resistant paint as a must for many homes.
Stain-resistance is a paint’s ability to withstand discoloration. A paint’s stain resistance also denotes how easy it is to clean.
As the name suggests, stain-resistant paint is designed to resist stains that can become unsightly eyesores. It is typically semi-gloss or glossy finish. Stain-resistant paint is easier to clean than matte or flat paint. Its superior resistance to stain makes it ideal for high-traffic areas such as the kitchen, entryway, bathroom, and hallway.
Drawings look good on paper, but definitely less so on walls. Children love writing, scribbling, and drawing on walls. Sometimes pets may also be the causes of less-than-stellar walls. Cats and dogs may often urinate or scratch at walls, which can discolor them. A stain-resistant paint can resist unsightly stains caused by kids and pets.
When choosing the right paint, consider your project goals. If you are covering up existing stains, use a high-performance primer to hide previous colors and block stains. Use one coat of primer and two coats of paint.
On the other hand, you simply want to add a fresh coat of paint to your walls, use a paint with a built-in primer or one designed to resist stains.
Not only will your walls look pristine, but you will spend less time removing ugly stains and more time appreciating your walls’ flawless beauty. A quick wipe with a clean, soft cloth is all it takes to maintain the natural shine of stain-resistant paint.
On unprimed surfaces and painted drywalls, removing ugly stains can seem like an uphill struggle. Even if you get rid of stains, they will leave ugly marks. To prevent stains, apply a primer. A primer helps the paint adhere to the surface and creates a less porous finish, which prevents stains from penetrating the paint.
