Winter is already here and everyone out there is thrilled with the cold chilly feeling of early mornings and late nights. During winters, we all love to enjoy hot coffee with some delicious snacks in our bed all day and literally do nothing but stare at the wall. Winter may not seem an ideal time to house painting.
But, as Berger Customer Manager, having experience in the painting industry, I would like to break the myth here and disclose that “winter is one of the best times to give your house a fresh coat of interior paint”.
Of course, exterior painting may have various limitations during winters, but you can pull off interior painting even in the thick of winter as you’re not limited by weather or daylight. But, I’ll add here that choosing the right paint and tools during painting in winters is a crucial step.
Best Paints and Tools to Use for House Painting in Winter
Choosing the paint for your interior walls can be a tricky choice as understanding their technical specifications may be confusing. To help make it easier, I’d like to suggest using paints that are specifically prepared for interior walls and don’t release unpleasant fumes or odour. Easy Clean Fresh may be the right pick for interior wall coating because helps beat all the problems that may be faced when painting during the winters.
It not just maintains a stronger bond with the surface you are painting, but also it is designed for all kinds of weather conditions. This paint will also absorb unpleasant odour so you don’t feel annoyed while you are inside your freshly-painted room.
And if there’s any stain left while you paint your walls, don’t worry as it offers washable coating so you can easily clean the stains thereby giving your wall a fresh and beautiful look. Apart from this, using the right tools is also important. Nylon and Polyester brushes tend to be best for house painting during winter. Another thing to keep in mind is that you should start painting in the late morning as it will give your paint enough time to dry even before cold waves put a damper on your walls in the evening.
Reasons Why Winter is the Best Season to Paint
Less Humidity In the Air
As an expert, I suggest painting house walls during winter as the humidity condition inside your house is as ideal for painting as you could possibly ask. Usually, people wait for the summers to paint their walls, which may be a good decision for painting exterior walls, but for interiors, winter offers the best conditions. More humidity in the environment may result in the paint peeling off or cracking in the future.
During winters, moisture in the air is limited, which allows the paint to stick and create a better bond with the walls. Painting during high-humidity weather makes it difficult for the paint to adhere and dry evenly, which results in reducing the life of the paint. Of course, the risk of rain is always there during winter, but you’ll give a longer life to your wall paint. Suitable interior conditions also reduce the time required for completing the job.
No Interior Fumes
Paint fumes can be irritating and pose various health hazards. Since it is cold, you don’t want to keep the doors and windows open for ventilation as the painting is under progress on your house walls. That’s why I’ve suggested using Berger Paints Easy Clean Fresh as it not just releases zero fumes, but also abates unpleasant odour and adds fresh fragrance in the house. And it will keep adding mild fragrance to your house interiors even a couple of months after painting, making your house a better place to live in.
No Hassle During Tiring Summers
The summer days are already tiring and the mess created due to the painting project makes it even frustrating and annoying. This is why most people choose to repaint their walls during colder days of the year so they can enjoy the weather come the summertime. Coming from a long work day to your newly painted house with vibrant interiors will add just some cheer, thereby lifting your energy level and mood conditions during the summer days.
No Better Season for Interior job
Let’s face it, monsoon and summer are not the best seasons for the house painting jobs. Monsoon season may be too wet for a paint job while summer is too hot. Winter is the time when you enjoy being indoors than other seasons of the year, so why not to make use of this time to organise a home improvement projects that you and your family are sure to love?
Painting your house during winter requires careful planning, just like any other home improvement project. With a good-quality washable paint for wall and tools, there’s no reason not to make full use of the winters and kick-start house painting that you’ve been itching to start.
