One of the most common questions people have in the interior painting industry is “how do I know if I need to repaint my walls?” While there isn’t a set standard for “every year” or “every decade”, there are numerous signs in your home that can answer the question for you. Below we will detail four of the main signs you need to repaint your walls.
Peeling, Cracks, Scuffs, and Scratches
Chances are, your home has seen its fair share of company and activity (especially if you have children). Whether it be from moving furniture around, a DIY project gone wrong, or just the wear and tear of everyday life, the paint on your walls can only take so much. Quality paint applied by a professional can last years longer than most home improvement projects, saving you money in the long-run.
Moisture and Mildew
Areas of your home susceptible to moisture such as a bathroom, kitchen, or near an AC vent, tend to build up mildew over the course of time. This can leave watermarks and other unsightly stains on your walls that can be very difficult to remove. Aside from the aesthetically unappealing look of mildew-stained walls, there can even be a danger to your health if left unattended resulting in mold buildup.
Unfortunately, a coat of paint doesn’t last forever. Like a car, musical instrument, or piece of fine art, paint will eventually succumb to the natural elements and if left untouched, fade entirely. Areas of your home that see the most traffic (hallways, entry areas, kitchens) typically need the most frequent paint jobs while a bedroom or closets paint job can last up to 8 years if applied by a professional.
Time for a Change
Have you ever listened to a song so many times that you started to hate it? Or seen a commercial so often that you’d rather watch paint dry? A change can be a rejuvenating experience in any aspect, but especially your wall colors. A professional paint job can make your home feel brand new and cultivate the excitement you once felt moving into your new house.
