Paint Blistering On Wall & Ceiling

Do you saw blister anywhere on the wall?

   Paint bubble is just another way of saying paint blistering. A blister is a pocket of fluid that congregates between dried paint, which can expand and form into blisters or bubbles and break open, leaving damaged paint surfaces or holes and marks left behind. The paint bubbling effect can happen shortly after paint or longer term. This condition can eventually lead to the peeling of the paint. We need to take steps to avoid this problem before occurring. To avoid such problem effectively this is what Quick Interior Do –

Checklist to avoid blister problem

1. Check the water leakage

One of the best ways to tell if you have a leak in some part of your plumbing is to check the water meter. Also if your bill is rising consistently but your water use habits haven’t changed, a leak may be to blame.

2. Check the type of putty

There are two types of wall putty available. White cement wall putty and Acrylic wall putty is for interior and White cement wall putty used for both interior and exterior. Treatment for both interior and exterior applications because of its superior finish. Before applying either primer or putty, we need to ensure that all traces of grease, stains, dust, old wallpaper, oil paints, etc. are scraped off the wall.

3. Check the thickness of putty

   The maximum thickness of 2 coats is 1.5 mm with an approximately. However, actual coverage achieved depends on the base surface condition and finished thickness. It provides an ideal base for painting and damp resistant smooth finish for further application of all kinds of paints.

4. Check the type of paint

 The type of paint you choose is just as important as the color and can have a major effect on the character of your room, the quality of your paint, and the vibe you want to achieve. We need to find paint samples and examine how easily they cover and spread an area, and how easily you can clean them once they’re dry.

 5. Moisture content

       Calibrate the moisture meter, according to instructions,        testing your wall. Other types of meters are available, from ones that use electromagnetic waves to detect moisture under the wall surface, which insert into probe holes and are covered with tape. After several hours, check the spikes, if they turn from yellow to green, you have excessive moisture.

6. Check pipeline leakage

Pipeline leak detection is used to determine if and in some cases where a leak has occurred in systems that contain liquids and gases. Methods of detection include hydrostatic testing, infrared, and laser technology after pipeline erection and leak detection during service. Pipeline networks are the most economic and safest mode of transportation for oil, gases, and other fluid products

Solutions

1. Use Low VOC paint

 In an industry notorious for producing toxic chemicals from oils to acrylics to watercolors paints contain substances that are potentially harmful to humans and the environment. Low-VOC paints feature have reduced amounts of volatile organic compounds compared to traditional paints, so they don’t let off as many harmful chemicals like traditional paints.

2. Use Proper Binder for wall

 The binder is the film-forming component of paint. It is the only component that is always present among all the various types of formulations. Many binders are too thick to be applied and must be thinned. The binder imparts properties such as gloss, durability, flexibility, and toughness

 3. Proper Etching on the wall

 The process can be concluded in a series of steps including Cleaning, Laminating, Exposing, Developing, Etching, and Stripping, after which rigorous inspection is automatically carried out on all components.

 4. Scrap Peel off paint

 Before painting your house’s interior or exterior, it’s important to deal with existing paint problems scrape away loose edges of the painted area. Stop when it becomes too difficult to pry away the paint. With a wire brush, vigorously sweep away the remaining dust from the area.

 5. Check the Moisture content through a moisture gauge

 Moisture meters are used to measure the percentage of water in a given substance. This information can be used to determine if the material is ready for use, unexpectedly wet or dry, or otherwise in need of further inspection. Wood and paper products are very sensitive to their moisture content. Physical properties are strongly affected by moisture content and high moisture content for a period of time may progressively degrade a material.
