How to Maintain Your Exterior Paint
After we conclude our exterior painting service, it’s important to maintain your paint to enjoy it for years to come. There are a few steps you can take to preserve your exterior paint without having to worry about spending money on upkeep.
Mold and Mildew
Mold and mildew can accumulate on areas that see more moisture exposure. If you see it starting to develop, cover your plants and grass around the area. Then, apply a 3:1 mixture of water and household bleach to the affected area. Using a brush or a garden sprayer, apply the solution to the mold and mildew and allow it to sit for about 15 minutes. Rinse off the area thoroughly. The bleach solution kills the mold without damaging your exterior paint.
Dirt and Chalking
Over time, it’s natural for dirt to accumulate on your paint. Dirt on your property also creates a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Additionally, chalky pigment can develop as paint weathers. You can remove both dirt and chalk with simple scrubbing or power washing. Use a mild detergent and avoid harsh, alkaline cleaners. These cleaners can reduce the gloss of your paint. Power washing is a great way to remove grime from your property without paying to repaint it. However, it can be rough on your exterior. Limit power washing to one or two times per year.
Cracking and Peeling
Make sure you regularly give a quick inspection of your home’s exterior paint. While we conduct reliable, professional painting, nothing lasts forever. Look for open joints around doors, windows, and other areas of traffic. Make sure to fill them with high-quality caulk to avoid air and moisture leaks.
