In reality many people believe that painting is such a simple task that they themselves can do it. Maybe they are right, but the reality is that PAINTING is a professional task that requires several aspects that must be considered before tackling the task.
In truth, there is no one definitive answer to this question, because each case is different. Generally, professionals recommend repainting every 3 or 4 years, although there are a multitude of variables that can determine that new paint is needed sooner. While it is true, if it has been applied correctly, the paint is of 1st quality and adequate maintenance is carried out, we can lengthen the time without painting up to 5 or 6 years.
The habits of people living in the house. For example, if smoked inside the house, tobacco smoke causes stains on walls and ceilings. If there are young children and pets, rubbing on the walls and stains are more common.
The quality of the paint and how it has been applied. Using good materials to paint the house clearly influences how long it will last in correct conditions, but what influences even more this duration is to have applied the paint correctly.
If the person who has applied the paint is not a professional, it is very possible that the application is not correct and in a short time there will be disconcons on the wall, less protected areas, moisture stains, etc… Causing us to have to repaint more often.
Environmental factors also influence this decision. For example, in rooms where the sun gives a lot the paint may lose its vividness and intensity faster. On the other hand, in wetter rooms such as bathrooms or the kitchen, condensation stains can come out on ceilings and walls more easily.
Daily dust and friction are factors that are common in all cases.
