How Long After Pressure Washing to Primer


A lot of the great paintings that were produced centuries ago will have faded into oblivion if hard working maintenance experts did not spruce them up every once in a while. That just goes to show how delicate and fragile paint can be, and it also raises the question of how paint can survive for so long on houses when it can’t do so in the art that it has been used to create. The thing is, there is a stark contrast between how paint is used in an artistic setting and how it is used in a home renovation situation.

The reason behind this is that you don’t just add paint on a house if you want it to last once all has been said and is now out of the way. Rather, you add a coating of primer to it that allows it to stick more firmly to the wall, and on top of all of that it also makes it smoother and gives it a bit of a matte finish. You might need to repaint your house after power washing near me, and adding primer before painting helps make your house look nicer than might have been the case otherwise.

Pressure Washing

That said, you need to wait a little while after pressure cleaning because primer needs a dry surface and dry is not a word that we could comfortably use to describe your walls after they have just been washed. Quite on the contrary, your walls will be soaked through and they need at least two to three days to dry otherwise the primer will just flow off of them and have absolutely not positive effect.
