Poor Stain Resistance - INTERIOR

Failure of the paint to resist absorption of dirt and stains.

Causes

  • Use of low-quality paints that are porous in nature..
  • Application of paint to unprimed substrate.

Solutions

  • Use high-quality latex paints that are formulated to resist stains and prevent them from penetrating the painted surface, allowing for easy removal.
  • Priming new surfaces provides maximum sheen and film thickness of a premium top coat, providing very good stain removability.
  • Consider using higher sheen paints for high-traffic areas.
