Often renewing the color to a room is the need to paint even the radiators.

Remember that these paintings must always be carried out on radiators off, so in case of winter remember to switch them off first.

Let's see the phases of the work:

  • Switch off the radiators in the event of winter
  • Remove any traces of rust with an iron brush and remove the dust. The surface must be perfectly degreased to make the paint adhere.
  • Get the right paint as you work in often closed environments it is preferable to use water-based glazes. In case solvent-based glazes are used, the room is well ventilated
  • Use a medium brush for smooth faces, and an angled brush for interstices
