2. Cleaning & Touch-ups

Now that your walls are painted in a high-end product with a colour you love, it’s time to relax. It’s a good idea to stay prepared for when your walls will need touch-ups. It’s also important to take good care of the walls so you can enjoy the paint job for years to come. Make sure you have an extra gallon or two of the products used, with the exact colour code. This should be left in the original can, sealed well, and labeled clearly for the areas it was originally used. Touch-ups will be needed down the road, so make sure you’re prepared for this.

Before touching up, try and gently clean the areas first. You can start with a little bit of warm water, dish soap, and a clean, soft rag. Touch-ups may still be necessary after a quick clean. To touch-up, you want to blend out the spot by feathering the edges out softly. Touch-ups aren’t always easy, but having the exact product and colour sure helps.
