Touch up Painting Interior Walls – a Do or a Don’t?

How do I do it? Can it be done? Are there other options?


How do we touch up interior walls?

Answer: You don’t! Under most circumstances touching up walls is a poor idea! You are better off trying to wash off those little messes or problems. Try using mild soap like dishwashing soap or those new funny little bleach sponges seem to work well.


Are there other options?

Answer: Alternately if washing off does not work you can paint individual walls from corner to corner. Even if the paint you have is not a perfect match, corner-to-corner painting will often solve your problems.


The best option?

Answer: We use Benjamin Moore’s highest quality interior wall paint (AURA). With this paint, washing is easy and if the stain will not come out you can truly touch up! And yes I mean touch up just the spot. The touch up factor with AURA paint is hands down the best in the market. Yet another reason for using the best products available.

Tired of Popcorn Ceiling?

Lake Area Can Help You Achieve a New Look

Do you feel like a bag of popcorn exploded every time you look up at one of your ceilings? If you are sick and tired of your popcorn ceiling, Lake Area Painting and Decorating, Inc. can help you modernize. Most of our customers who have popcorn ceilings have two main questions:

1) Can removing a popcorn-textured ceiling be done quickly and without creating a large mess?
2) And what are the options for a new look on my ceilings?

Quickly? Yes!

On an average-sized room – let’s say 12 feet x 15 feet – we can prepare (“cover and mask”) the
room, remove the texture, and re-install knock down or any other texture in
as few as three days! If we add more rooms or square footage we can still
get the job done in three days. More rooms will only require more manpower.

Without a mess? Yes and no!

There will be a mess no doubt. The trick is containment, management and
clean up. And yes it is a trick. Good systems are critical or it could be
a disaster. Think about all those tiny little bumps on your ceiling scattered across your floor.

What are the options for a new look?

How about a very smooth bright white ceiling? Or a shade of gray or a subtle
gold tone. How about a very fine knock down texture or a very bold knock
down. Bloops, swirls, Spanish texture – yes there are lots of options
available.

We invite you to call us at 651-429-1778 if you are interested in a quote on removing your popcorn ceiling and adding a new look.
