Every renovation is a difficult organisational challenge and is often associated with difficult decisions. All the more so, once it has been completed, keeping it clean and undamaged seems to be a very important task. Unfortunately, this often becomes impossible, especially when you have just finished redecorating a child’s room and the child has decided that he or she needs to try out new crayons with their favourite fairy tale character. Very often, it is only a soiled section of the wall so there is no justification for doing a comprehensive repainting, as you only need to freshen up a section of the room. Masking tape of the Pocket Tape group rushes to the rescue, as it will even reach hard-to-reach places due to its pocket-sized size. Often, dirt on the wall appears in the area around the radiator so sealing with a classic 3-inch roll would be unrealistic, while using Pocket Tape you will be able to reach even the most difficult nooks and crannies.

The most important thing is to secure the parts closest to the contaminated part of the wall. These are usually contacts, light switches, radiators or wall tiles or panels. In order to avoid cleaning them unnecessarily, Masking tape should be carefully stuck to each of their edges, so that if you run a paint roller over them, it will not dirty their surface.

The next step is to prepare the wall for painting, which should be degreased and allowed to dry. Once the wall is dry, you can start painting the surface you are interested in. Such a quick refresh refers to repainting relatively new walls, primed, in which we are sure that the plaster will not come off with the paint. In the case of walls with paint that is a few years old or even several years old, it is recommended that the walls are repainted comprehensively, including the primer, in order to ensure that the work is done properly and to avoid optical differences in the colour of the paint.

Once the painting is complete, peel off the Masking tape. The first step is to grab the end of the tape and gradually tear it off. Do not peel the tape off in half or tear it off in a vigorous motion. Once all the tape has been peeled off, it should be disposed of.
