A. Flat and low sheen paints do not sustain a high amount of scrub-ability. Look for paints of flat or low sheen marked washable or wash and wear or go for a satin sheen.
A. Generally speaking it may take up to 60 days to fully cure. However Latex (Acrylic) paint can be put to normal use after a day or two. However DO NOT attempt to wipe or wash the walls before 14 days post application.
A. Flakiness under these circumstances comes back to incorrect surface preparation - no sealer or very minimal sealer will cause this as your top coat paint has nothing to stick to.
A. Always use warm soapy water and use a white cloth as coloured clothes may leave dye behind on the walls. Do not use sugar soap or any abrasive detergent in your water.
A. If it's still wet and its latex (Acrylic) paint apply water to it with a rag, and if it is alkyd (Enamel) paint apply turps sparingly with a rag. If the drips are dry and hard use a product called "Goof Off" see manufacturers directions on spray can.
A. Nothing will bring these off to the point where it won't bleed through paint. So a stain block product has to be used and then the substrate repainted. All paint companies have these stain blocking products.
A. No, mould/mildew grows in any area that is dark, moist and with minimal air. A cleaning maintenance schedule is best protection in such environments.
A. There is various cleaners on the market that are specified to remove mould/mildew. Another option is bleach and water which is also a suitable solution. Ensure you wear the appropriate PPE (Gloves & Goggles) to apply to the required surfaces ensuring you kill all the spores, flush the area with cold water afterwards.
A. Generally use a detergent cleaner, pre-paint cleaner or simply use a water pressure cleaner and ensure you use the correct PPE (Personal Protective Equipment).
