This article discusses some of the go-to tips for keeping a fresh new coat of paint looking great – for longer.

Clean the Walls Every Now and Then

When you paint the walls, baseboards, and trimmings, this provides a quick and affordable update to any interior space, whether it be a kitchen, bathroom, or bedroom.

Life gets messy, however, and some of the first places to get impacted with stains and spills are the walls and floors. When these happen, wipe away the mess with a soft and wet paper towel or microfiber cloth. Avoid using abrasive sponges or other cleaning tools which could cause the paint to crack or peel.

Act Fast to Remove Crayon Marks

As a family owned and operated business, Colossus Painting gets it:

Keeping the walls spic and span year-round is a near impossible feat with small kids in tow.

A budding young artist may have taken the initiative to create a masterpiece with crayons or permanent markers. When this happens, Magic Erasers do pure magic to eliminate tough messes, including marks with crayons or markers.

Another simple trick is using a hair dryer to quickly heat crayon marks, which can then be wiped clean without putting in much elbow grease.

Get Quick Refreshers with Paint

In high-traffic areas, such as the living room or kitchen, for example, quick touchups every year may be needed to accomplish a like-new look.
