How To Tell When It’s Time To Repaint Your Interior

Repainting your walls is something that many people may overlook, but as someone who manages or owns their own commercial or residential property, it’s a big part of maintaining your building. 

Your paint can have a massive impact on both the aesthetic appearance of your home, as well as being a strong indicator of when things may be structurally going wrong. 

If you want to keep your property in the best condition possible, then it’s good to keep on top of your home painting. 

Here are some signs that it’s time to repaint your interiors!

Your Paint Is Cracking, Bubbling or Damaged

There are many different ways that your paint can start to show damage and age. Cracking, peeling and bubbling are very common signs that your walls are in desperate need of a fresh coat of paint. 

Your walls and the quality of paint on them can have a massive impact on the aesthetic appeal of your interior, which is especially important as a business owner. It will reflect better on your business if you maintain your interior to a high standard and ensure that your paint remains clean and nice. 

For residential homes, you will also want to upkeep your walls to make sure that your home doesn’t lose value, and you don’t end up with a bigger bill longer down the road. Bubbling paint or other damage can be a sign of a bigger structural issue or damage. 

Wear and tear is just a natural part of life too. As you live and work in an area, over time your paint will have to face up against a variety of different types of damage. 

Things such as scuff marks or holes in your plaster can be an indicator that you should look into repainting your home or office. 

The Paint Has Faded 

If your paint has begun to fade visibly, it’s a good idea to consider repainting your interior walls. Paint can get bleached by the sun, or moisture can also cause paint to fade. 

No matter the paint, it is going to fade over time, but certain paint colours will fade quicker, especially vibrant and darker colours. 

Paint that has faded can be more susceptible to other damage, including mould, so it’s a good time to consider having your walls freshly painted. 

Mould Is Growing

Mould is a very common problem, especially for areas like Brisbane where the humidity and wet weather can quickly become a welcome home for mould to grow. 

With a professional paint job, you can get paint that is protective and can help prevent and protect against mould. But if you are starting to see your interior paint affected by mould, it’s a strong sign that you need to repaint. 

Mould can be a health and safety issue, and can lead to various different illnesses, so it’s important that mould is addressed swiftly to prevent further damage to your walls and to occupants of the building. 

You Have Some Downtime/Holidays Planned

Having your commercial or residential building repainted can be a very complicated and time consuming process that will disrupt your everyday life and routine. 

If you know that you have some downtime or holidays coming up, it can be a great time to book in for your professional painting services. 

School holidays, christmas break or any other time when your business will be shut or you will be away from home can be the perfect opportunity to get this maintenance done without disrupting your life too much. 

Selling or Welcoming a New Tenant

Selling your home, or welcoming a new tenant? Repainting your walls can be a great way to improve the value of your home, or make it more appealing for a new commercial tenant. 

It can be a super cost effective way to add value to your home, and to generate more interest from people. 

You’re Ready To Rebrand

While this one doesn’t really apply for residential purposes, it’s actually a big factor when it comes to a commercial property. 

Your office space or workspace is a representation of who you are, and so you need a paint job that matches your brand. 

If you have a rebrand coming up, your old paint colour may not suit anymore, and you will need to repaint to make sure that things stay fresh and align with your new branding.
