4 Signs That its Time to Repaint Your Home Interior

Signs That It's Time to Repaint Your Home Interior

The interior paint job of your Ottawa home can reflect your tastes and what type of aesthetic you enjoy. However, because tastes and colour trends change, you may no longer be happy with your home’s paint job. Calling us at the Handyman Connection for painting services in Ottawa can help you decide which colours and styles will best suit your home, as well as when it is time for an interior paint job makeover. 

1. Cracking Paint 

Over time, your home’s interior paint may start to bubble or crack due to changing conditions, such as heating, air conditioning and changes in moisture levels. These can cause minute cracks in the surface of the paint, which tend to spread or deepen over time. Once a crack appears, the paint may start to peel. 

Our experienced painting technicians can help you identify where this kind of cracking might occur or where it may be showing signs of bubbling. Once identified, they can provide you with a variety of solutions, including: 

  • Scraping and replacing cracking paint 
  • Repairing and smoothing bubbling paint 
  • Options for new and different styles of paint 

Resolving peeling paint in one or more of your home’s interior rooms can preserve the material underneath it and prevent the damage that serious or advanced peeling might cause. When left untreated, peeling paint may also cause deep flaking that may cause the exterior of some types of drywall to tear or stain. 

2. Stains 

While some types of interior paints advertise as washable, this may not always be the case with certain stains. Permanent marker, pet accidents and tobacco residue can leave walls looking drab or unsightly. While you may be able to reduce the severity of the stain with a cleanser, it may not vanish completely. 

Our painting technicians can walk you through a few different options for painting stained walls and removing as much of the damage as possible and treating the surface of the walls before adding a new coat of paint. You may want to ask about worry-free paint brands that resist stains or that are easy to clean. 

3. Mold and Mildew 

Some rooms of your home may retain more moisture than others, such as your bathroom, kitchen and laundry room. This moisture may lead to mould or mildew growth, both of which can damage drywall and cause an unpleasant odour. If this fungus goes untreated, it may cause paint to peel, crack and bubble. 

Calling us for painting services in Ottawa can help you eliminate any mould or mildew issues that could disrupt the painting process or make it less effective. Our technicians can treat walls before painting or, if needed, replace badly damaged sections before adding a fresh coat of paint. This can spruce up any moisture-prone space and remove any mould that might be causing stains or foul odours. 

4. Outdated Colours 

How long ago did you choose that certain shade of blue that was all the rage when you decided to change your home’s interior colour? If it was more than a decade ago, then you might be tired of that colour or notice that trends are changing and new hues are dominating the interior design. Our painters can help you choose a new colour for your living room, bedrooms or any other room in the house to update that worn, uninspired colour and offer new and exciting choices instead. 

Updating your home’s interior can be a challenge, especially when you commit to changing your wall’s colour. However, there is no need to struggle through this task on your own. No matter the size of the job, you can contact us at Handyman Connection today for a an estimate and other information regarding painting services in Ottawa.
