Scrubbing Failure

Back to interior problems...
Excessive wearing away of the paint film from repeated scrubbings.

Scrubbing Failure Causes - using an improper scrubbing technique with abrasive cleansing powder that will burnish ad cut through the paint film. Using a flat sheen paint in a gloss sheen area. Scrubbing the paint before it has properly cured.

Scrubbing Failure Solutions - select a paint formulated for repeated scrubbings. Gloss finishes wash easier and resist soil. Wait until the paint is properly cured before any scrubbing, 3 weeks or more. Wash with a sponge or soft cloth with a liquid detergent.

Primers and Interior Finishes - Priming is essential for better adhesion, sheen uniformity, mildew control and durability. Ask your Muralo dealer for the best Muralo interior paint for your project, in the color and sheen of your choice.
