Whether it is a newly renovated space or not, peeling walls are a pretty common sight.

Walls with small flakes or big portions of peeling paints are a potential hazard in your home as they might fall on your furniture and electronics and damage them, or worse, injure your family members.

It is very important to identify the causes of peeling walls and get them fixed as soon as possible.

Here are three of the most common reasons why this happens.

High humidity and water exposure

Humid interiors can create a damp environment and moisture build-up on the walls’ inner surface, which leads to the paint being detached and cracked from the wall.

Be sure to pay attention to leaks at home and get them fixed before putting on a new coat of paint as water can be absorbed into the inner surface, leading to the peeling of paint.

Weak surface preparation

Insufficient and incorrect pre-painting surface preparations cause uneven surfaces.

Applying paint on unprimed walls, or even dirty surfaces, can impede paint from properly attaching to the surface.

Be sure to remove all dirt, grease or even dust before working on your painting task!

Thick layers of paint

Too much of anything is not good, and this applies to paint as well.

Too many layers of paint on a surface causes the coat of paint to be too heavy, which will peel and eventually fall off.

Hence, it is crucial to scrape off old paint layers prior to painting on a new coat.
