Ceiling Painting


Although we don’t look at it very much, a fresh coat of paint on your ceiling can make a huge difference in

brightening up a room.

 

A flat finish paint is what is usually used for ceiling painting, ceiling paintingthis way it doesn’t draw attention to any

minor imperfections that may lie on your ceiling.

Many ceilings after some years can begin to flake, especially in areas that are prone to allot of heat,

steam or water exposure such as above your shower, and in your kitchen above your stove or

rangehood. These areas require a little more attention than others. All of the flaking paint must be

scraped off entirely, sanded back, and often a fresh coat of plaster should be applied. This careful

preparation is important in these easily damaged areas to prevent the same problem to reoccur.

 

 

 

 

 

 

These areas are also very prone to mould which can be more of a problem than you may think.

In serious cases , the ceiling  need to be washed and scrubbed thoroughly with a chlorine mixture to kill the mould and remove most of the ‘fuzz’ or mould spores. This process may remove some of the paint in which case the existing paint will need to be scraped back and sanded to create a smooth finish, as is required with flaking ceilings.

The application of a zinsser oil based undercoat product is important in the prevention of the stains from appearing through the fresh paint job, and the continuation of more mould growing, a low sheen or semi gloss (usually used in wet areas) paint with anti fungus added into the paint will also help to prevent the mould and stains returning.

Mould associated with damp buildings can cause nasal congestion, sneezing, coughing, wheeze, respiratory infections and allergic conditions.

Toxic mould produces mycotoxins that can produce serious health risks.

Why don’t your give your ceilings a new look and give them the attention they deserve.
