Peeling paint in your kitchen, bathroom and laundry

Are the walls and ceilings in your kitchen, bathroom or laundry constantly getting mouldy?  Is the paint peeling?

First thing I’d look at is ventilation. Do you have an exhaust fan? Does it work or do you just forget to put it on!  If you don’t have one, get one!  They cost as little as 30 dollars to buy.  If you’ve got one, use it! 

Next we’re going to fix up your paintwork.. you’ll be happy to know there’s a simple solution!  Re-paint with a Kitchen and Bathroom paint. Most paint companies make one that’s specially designed for these areas so they can handle moisture and resist mould.

The most important thing to do before applying Kitchen and Bathroom paint is to wash all surfaces thoroughly with sugar soap to remove the grease.  You’ll also need to treat any mould.  Problem solved!

Always follow the instructions for the products you’re going to use and put on your safety gear.
