How to Clean Painted Walls

When it comes to the presentation of your home or business, we often times base our judgements from the finish details such as the flooring, appliances, countertops, and of course the paint! While the other finish details’ cleaning methods are more obvious, it is also important to understand how to keep your walls clean, therefore preserving your paint job and getting the most value out of it. Methods for Cleaning Painted Walls Dusting- Dusting is the most least aggressive method for cleaning your walls. This process involves using a vacuum cleaner and attaching the dusting brush. You think simply delicately run the attachment over any trim or wall areas that have cob webs, light dust or dirt.

Large Industrial Warehouse Brightened Up

Large Industrial Warehouse Brightened Up
Just to the North of Front Street and Chouteau in Kansas City's Northeast Industrial District resides a large distribution center. The 240,000 square foot facility previously occupied by long time tenant, Ozburn-Hessey, was in need for some new curb appeal due to decades of wear and tear from everyday logistics operations. Scope: Inside this facility, Major Painting's focus was on brightening up the dark warehouse. With poor lighting and a tight budget, it made the most sense to repaint all of the interior walls white in order to brighten the space.
