Environmental Factors That Affect Paint

house paintingWhether it is the dead of winter or the peak of summer, weather can have a substantial impact on just about everything that it encounters. Though houses are made to be robust and should hold up against weather, there’s no denying that plenty of things can impact the exterior despite how well-done a house painting job is. So, to keep your home looking great, bear these risky things in mind and keep an eye out for them. You can always call Target Painting for expert paint services!

 

 

  • Pollen and other allergens

Not only can allergens make an impact on allergy sufferers, but they can also harm paint when left unchecked. Dust and other allergens can be troublesome to remove and abundant. It’s best to protect your coating whenever you can do so so that you don’t have to deal with the massive task of washing it off, only to do so in a short while.

 

  • Heat

When summer hits, people are happy to explore the outdoors and soak up the heat. Though it’s fun, summer can leave an impact on cars, homes, and other painted areas. Excess heat can cause paint to lose its sheen, which is always frustrating. You’ll need to call Target Painting for a house painting job before you know it, which can cost some money. If your home gets exposed to the sun frequently, invest in protection and keep an eye on it.

 

  • Insects

As temperatures rise, insects come out more often, much to the chagrin of those who aren’t fans. Though they are difficult to deal with as it is, they can further impact your life by harming your house’s paint. Insects are highly acidic, and their properties can compromise the integrity of the paint on your home’s exterior.

 

  • Water

Especially if you live near the sea, it’s crucial that you ensure that the salt water stays where it is and doesn’t affect your home’s exterior. Paint can easily chip, peel, or fade if enough of it gets exposed to saltwater. Feel free to talk to Target Painting about solutions we can use to keep your paint thriving and in quality shape.
