After your surface repair service, it is aways well advised to take good care of the repair site, and use aftercare methods if required! While we will always leave your repair site perfectly finished and well protected from further harm, the site may retain some residual fragility from the damage, depending on the type of repair you have had done! This is why it’s always vital to treat the repair site with care, especially if the site is outside and exposed to the elements.

If we’ve completed a surface repair in your home, then you’ve already seen the magic we have created when repairing the damage! But taking care of your repair site will help it stand the test of time and look good as new years later.

Give Our Repair 24 Hours To Fully Set

The first thing you can do (or not do) to effectively take care of your repair is simply to leave the area alone for at least 24 hours to ensure the fixing agent and materials have been set into place! If you don’t do this, you could risk loosening or damaging the repair, taking you back to square one. After the 24 hour period is up, you should be able to go back to using the area as you would before the damage.

Use Non-Harmful Chemicals To Clean

Cleaning of the site is not always necessary, but if it is then you should ensure that you choose your cleaning products wisely. This means avoiding cleaning agents that contain chemicals that could damage the repair or stain your newly finished surface. Mild liquid detergents such as a lukewarm and dish soap formula will work perfectly rather than an ammonia-based cleaner.

Preserve Your Like-New Finish
