Don’t forget to clean your home’s exterior paint

We're sure you clean the inside of your house on a regular basis.

Have you ever considered it's just as important to clean your home's exterior paint?

You don't have to do the latter chore nearly as often – once a year should suffice. But it's absolutely vital that you take the time to clean your home's exterior paint if you want to keep it looking fresh and inviting for years to come.

Just as plaque can build up in your mouth and eat away at your teeth, airborne contaminants such as salt deposits can attack your home's exterior paint and damage it.

In addition to this, moss, lichen and mould can destroy the surface of your paint's film if they're not kept in check.

Resene offers a variety of products that can help your exterior paint maintain its lustre.

For example, you can use Resene Paint Prep and Housewash to wash your walls, diluted in the recommended amount of water, and give them a new lease on life instantly.

Use a soft broom to apply the mixture, and make sure you have plenty of fresh water on hand to rinse it off.

In addition to this, Resene Deep Clean is perfect for homeowners who want to give their exterior paint a more intensive wash.

Once you have diluted this in the recommended amount of water, all you have to do is apply it and let it work its magic. This slow-release cleansing agent will combine with your area's natural weather conditions to give your paint the deep clean it needs.

Finally, Resene Moss & Mould Killer is ideal for treating moss and mould so it doesn't grow through future layers of paint.

By cleaning your home's exterior paint, you will ensure you get the best out of it for the longest time possible. See the Resene Caring for Your Paint Finish brochure for more advice on looking after your paint finish.
