HomeComplete Value Painting BlogPainting Maintenance Tip: Check Those Sprinklers!

When you have made the investment to have your home painted by a professional painter, you want to be able to enjoy the results for as long as possible. It might surprise you that longevity depends on more than hiring the right painter and them using a quality paint. It also depends on some of the other maintenance tasks you need to stay on top of– namely your sprinkler system. If your sprinkler system is not set up properly, it can splash against your home, wrecking the paint job, as well as potentially damaging the siding or causing basement window leaks.

A quality exterior house paint used by a professional painter

A quality exterior house paint used by a professional painter has been developed to prevent algae growth under normal conditions, but it might not stand up to a constant onslaught by your sprinkler system, particularly if the water has various contaminants, such as iron. Another potential hazard with excessive water against your home is mold. Mold is not just bad for your home, but it can also pose a health hazard to you and your family.
