Home Living : April 14th 2009
2 HLS - HOME LIVING: SOUTH, Tuesday, April 14, 2009 HOMELIVING Paint & decorate Tony Isgrove Painter, decorator, and president of the Master Painters Association Don't fret your prep Paint applied over a poorly-prepared surface will not last as long or look as attractive. Time spent on preparation is never wasted. All your effort can count for very little if the surface does not provide a sound base on which the paint can adhere. Professionals find preparation can nearly take up the total job time, especially if it's been a long time since the last paint job. To avoid lengthy preparation, freshen up your paintwork before the surface deteriorates. Choosing the right primers, undercoats and topcoats is essential. The following simple steps will ensure you are happy with the results for years to come: Checking Look for signs of any problems with old paint peeling, flaking, cracking, chalking or blistering. These suggest repair work is necessary. Loose or faulty surfaces should be removed to create a sound, smooth, clean and dry base for painting. Cleaning If your surface is sound, the next step is cleaning. Wash it down will with sugar soap, following the directions on the pack. This will remove grease, smoke stains and dirt. Wash walls from bottom upwards, to prevent runs from marking the existing paintwork. Mould To remove mould, use a hypochlorite (household bleach) solution rather than sugar soap. Dilute one part hypochlorite with three parts water. Wear gloves and goggles to protect your skin and eyes. Apply with a thick scouring pad to lightly abrade the surface and ensure the removal of stubborn mould growth. Leave the solution on the surface for a few minutes, then wash with clean water. You may have to repeat.
