laundry room paint
 
Sherwin Williams has a great sale this weekend. (40% off) I'm buying the paint for my laundry room but not sure what kind. Even tho laundry rooms deal with water and moisture, I don't think it's as much moisture as a bathroom. In my bathrooms I used Gardz on the walls. I really can't tell what kind of paint was on the laundry walls before. Do you think a coat of Gardz is necessary?

thanks

In over 45 years in the painting industry I have only seen one client that had a fan in the laundry room. I don’t understand why people will put an exhaust fan (more often than not undersized) in a bathroom and not in the laundry room. I know it’s an expense that many don’t want to spend, however I can’t think of a better way to improve the air environment in the laundry room than a newly installed fan. Then concentrate on the type of paint to use. IMO

Just paint with a good eggshell and be done with it. You will be fine, Gardz and or semi gloss is hardly necessary in a laundry room

Well he is in Florida lot of humidity plus its a laundry room. The bath paint is mold and mildew resistant. This is why i recommended it. OR you could grab some zinsser perma-white mold and mildew proof interior. It comes in eggshell. HD or Menards or Lowes would have this. A couple years ago i paid 11 for a gallon. It was on sale.

But just about every house if Florida has AC so he probably has less humidity than you and I would. A simple eggsgell paint will do like Sherwin Williams Promar200.

Have lived in Fla for a long time. Have never painted mine or anybody else's laundry room with anything but regular paint.
