LONG ISLAND'S PAINTING CONTRACTOR - SCOTT PAINTING
I was thinking of painting my house but I wanted to try washing scuff marks off painted walls first.
I will try to be as detailed as possible in my response. If anyone reading this painting article still has questions send them to CONTACT US at bottom of page. (red print on black)
The best thing to get off scuff marks on a wall is a Magic Eraser that you buy at a grocery store.
The 4 steps above are key. If any of the above are not met, then you will see where you washed.
Most of your paints with a sheen such as Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams, and Behr are washable. Always test a small area to make sure that your paint is washable.
With each of the above brands, the higher end lines have a lot more washability then the cheaper paints.
The higher the sheen, the more washable the paint will be. When choosing paint, remember high sheen paints bring out all the imperfections in a wall.
When painting walls, paint needs to be straight out of the can. If your last painter thinned the paint, there will be minimal washability.
