Are You Maintaining Your Drywall? Practice Proactive Protection

by Boss Steel on August 04, 2017

We tend to think of walls as solid dividers between us and the outside world. While that may be true, we must also consider the fact that interior drywall is a delicate thing, easily marred.

Even careful homeowners, facility managers, and busy staff members aren't immune from causing accidental damage.

In order to keep your drywall in pristine condition, be sure to practice proactive protection.

Step One: Assess Distance

Sometimes, in order to maximize floor space, we keep furniture items as close to the wall as possible; however, we must consider the unwanted side-effects of such a choice. When furniture items are close to walls, they sometimes scratch and rub against the drywall, marring the smooth surfaces through unnecessary friction.

Consider leaving some space between furniture items and the wall.

Step Two: Carefully Consider Paint Options

You probably already know that not all paints are created equally. Depending on the form and function of your rooms, you'll want to consider your options carefully and select a paint that provides a type of finish best suited to protecting your drywall.

Take time and consult experts before you make a hasty choice.

Step Three: Install Corner Guards

Probably the most vulnerable spots for drywall are along interior corners and edges. Even simple, day-to-day foot traffic can lead to scratches, scrapes, dents, and gouges. If your building sees even heavier use, the odds increase that you will suffer obvious damage.

If you're going to protect your investment, you won't want to leave those edges unattended.
