BURNISHING is evident in an area that shows an unwanted increase in the gloss or sheen of a paint film when it is subjected to rubbing or scrubbing or has an object brush up against it.
- The use of matt paint in high traffic areas, where a sheen paint would have been more desirable
- Frequent washing and spot cleaning
- Use of lower grades of paint with poor stain and scrub resistance
- Washing of the painted surface with cleaning products containing ammonia
- Paint heavy traffic areas that require regular cleaning with a top-quality, washable product, for example, Premium Sheen or Ultra Sheen.
- Rather use a low sheen, washable product than a matt finish product.
- Clean painted surfaces with a soft cloth or sponge and non-abrasive, paint friendly cleansers
