Painting Kitchens And Bathrooms

21 Jan, 2016

Paint will not stick to dirty surfaces. Before painting, remove dust and dirt with water and mild dishwashing liquid and rinse clean. In kitchens and bathrooms, sugar soap will remove the grease and soap scum more effectively. Make sure you rinse surfaces with clean water before applying the paint.

Extending the Life of Exterior Doors

21 Jan, 2016

Painting the top and bottom edges of exterior doors and doors in wet areas will prevent moisture and condensation from being absorbed into the timber through the exposed end grain. This will significantly extend the paint coating and protect the timber door from swelling and the need to replace it.
