During the summer months, there is the most natural sunlight. In addition to positive characteristics, there are also negative ones, such as the fading of the interior and exterior parts of the object.
How to prevent the fading of things inside the object?
Namely, by letting strong sunlight inside the building, furniture, carpets, bed linen, and curtains fade. There are several tricks to prevent fading, and you decide which option is best for you:
- Lower the curtains and blinds. This option certainly prevents the interior of the object from fading, so try to use it at least at the time when the sunlight is the most intense. You can also use window films and blinds with padding for extra protection.
- Choose natural fabrics. For certain items that you plan to keep in sunlight, choose natural fabrics like cotton and wool. Such fabrics will fade more slowly. Also, keep in mind that darker colors fade faster than lighter colors.
- Rotate carpets. Rotate your carpets from time to time so they fade evenly.
How to prevent fading of the exterior part of the object?
The exterior of the building is just as important as the interior. Namely, on the outer part of the building, the color of the facade usually fades, which can leave a negative impression on visitors to the objects. If the exterior color fades, it means that the paint layer has degraded. There are four simple ways to keep exterior colors intense and even for longer:
- Match the color selection with the factors affecting the object. Depending on the position of your object, fading can be affected by various factors, i.e. weather conditions. So choose coloring products that will work in accordance with environmental factors.
- Choose a color that is resistant to fading. The ideal choice for exterior painting of the object is color resistant to fading. Such paints contain high-quality pigments and a sufficient amount of binders that connect the pigment particles with other ingredients, which leads to a longer-lasting color.
- Research the quality of colors before choosing. Dyeing products and technologies have improved significantly compared to previous years. We advise you to research carefully which colors are of better quality, which will help you maintain the longevity of the colors in the outdoor environment. If you adequately prepare the surface and use quality paint, you will avoid premature fading of the exterior paint, the appearance of bubbles, peeling and cracking of the paint, mold, etc.
- Avoid colors that tend to fade. Even the choice of the color shade itself can be crucial. Namely, bright colors such as red, blue, and yellow will fade much faster than tan, beige, and brown.
