Home Improvement & Repair Tips : How to Clean Paint Rollers


Hi, I’m James with JNC Home Repair. Today,
I’m going to show you how to clean a paint roller. The first thing you want to know about
the reason you may want to clean your roller cover is because these things cost about eight
or ten dollars. A good roller cover will. You want to keep it clean and if you’re doing
some painting with it and you let it sit out in the sun and you let it sit there and dry,
you’re going to ruin it. The next time you switch colors or the next time you need to
do some painting , it’s going to be all dried up and all matted up and it’s going to be
useless. A good idea is to always as soon as you get done painting if you’re switching
colors or even if you’re just done painting for awhile and you need to move on to something
else, it doesn’t hurt to go ahead get your roller frame, your roller cover, take it over
to the water hose, take it over to the water supply and clean it out. It’s pretty simple
to do, all you’re going to do is just clean out the roller cover. Then after you’ve cleaned
out the roller cover with the water, you want to remove the roller cover from the frame
and actually clean the inside the frame too. Because paint gets trapped on the inside of
it and if you were to switch colors or something and you dipped it down into another paint
color. Whatever color you had on the inside of it’s going to mix with your other paint
and it’s not going, you’re not going to get very good results from that.
