How to Remove Water Stains with Paint

After the rainy season ends, the walls of a house become moist.

This moist affects the paint badly and you even see mildew and fungus appearing on the damp walls.

Clean my Premises (house cleaning Toronto) understands your problem and brings to you easy solutions. Through the tips we offer, you can repair the stained paint and make your house look neat, clean and beautiful again.


6 Steps of How to Remove Water Stains from Paint:

Some of the very effective and affordable tips for removing water stains from paint are given below:

Step 1: Applying Fungicide

To remove mildew and fungus from the stained moisture paint, you should first apply a good fungicide on the affected areas.

You can also use an anti-mold paint on the fungus if you want to directly go for painting the stains.

Step 2: Bleach and Water

You can use a bleach and water solution if you do not want to use a fungicide.

Make a solution of three parts water and one part bleach. Mix it well with a spoon, or stick. If you want to use your hands directly, do not do so without wearing protective gloves.

Step 3: Apply on Mold

Apply the bleach and water solution with the help of a sponge on the areas where you see mold appearing on the stained paint.

Step 4: Dry with Paper Towels

Dry the smudged area after 15 to 20 minutes with dry paper towels.

Step 5: Stain Blocking Primer

To avoid getting water stains on your walls, apply a stain blocking primer with a roller or paint brush on the affected areas.

Step 6: Paint Away:

After the stain blocking primer is dry, paint the wall with the same or different color to finish the job.
