Stain Resistance Failure
Stain resistance failure: Paint soiling with minimal resistance to the absorption of dirt and stains.
Stain resistance causes: Using a flat paint that has a very porous film and vulnerable to soil by absorbing dirt. Applying paint to unprimed surfaces. Using a flat finish paint in a sheen area such as baths, kitchens, laundry rooms and halls.
Stain resistance solutions: Select a paint formulated for heavy duty wear and stain resistance. Priming new surfaces with the proper primer and using a premium quality finish coat will offer the best stain resistance. Wash stains promptly with a sponge and liquid detergents.
Primers & interior finishes: Priming is essential for better adhesion, sheen uniformity, mildew control and durability. Select a top quality interior paint in the color and sheen of your choice.
