Home Living : August 5th 2008
8 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, August 5, 2008 HOMELIVING Paint that is gentler on world Wash and wear paint is imperative for all those little mishaps that occur around the home. A premium washable paint Dulux Wash & Wear is a stain repelling paint, serving as a barrier to marks before they sink into walls. With the wipe of a damp cloth, telltale signs disappear. Now a greener improvement from Dulux is set to make Wash & Wear even more appealing. Dulux Eco Choice, an added innovation to Wash & Wear, makes painting seem like a breath of fresh air. With less than 5g of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) per litre, Dulux Eco Choice paints release less emissions and fewer odours into the environment, making painting more pleasant. Gentler on the world, Eco Choice paints are also friendlier on the user, ensuring home life returns to normal as quickly as possible, while reduced odours provide more respite to those suffering from allergies or respiratory problems. Dulux spokeswoman Andrea Lucena-Orr believes Dulux Wash & Wear Eco Choice paints make it that much easier to achieve the latest looks at home. ''Available in most Wash & Wear paints, Eco Choice is also present in Dulux Prepcoat and Ceiling White, providing a total painting solution,'' she said. ''A vastly improved formula, Ceiling White now delivers better coverage, a brighter finish, complete colour accuracy, and a sweeter smell, making it a more pleasant product to apply.'' Dulux Eco Choice is available at paint outlets visit www.dulux.com.au or call 132 525. Check the deck, now Each spring and summer sees a spate of serious injuries from collapsed decks. Take a close look at yours right now. Renovation expert Kevin Farrell says look for rotten timber, especially the posts, balustrades, decking, and where framing parts join with each other. ''Press suspect timber with a screwdriver to test and if it penetrates more than one or two millimetres you may have rot or termite damage,'' he said. Look for parts that are loose or separating from each other. Sometimes bolts are visibly rusted, but sometimes the rust damage is concealed inside the timber. Try tightening or loosening nuts to find out. Contact local licensed builders for advice and quotes. If your balcony is cantilevered concrete (supported only along one edge) there may not be any visible signs that the internal steel reinforcement is rusted. If your concrete deck is ageing go to www.acrassoc.com.au for inspectors and repairers. Refinish your timber deck regularly with a non film-forming coating such as an oil or penetrating acrylic. ............................................. cumberlandnewspapers.com.au 2189101 Inspiration, innovative products and practical solutions Each week Home Living provides you with the latest in renovation, interior decorating and design Introduce your business to over 1.8 million* prospective customers. phone 9689 5395 *Roy Morgan Readership Survey, September 2006 cumberlandnewspapers.com.au Advertise your water saving product or service in Water Wise, published weekly in Home Living.
