So ive just started painting. I didn't wash every wall down and im worried itll ruin what ive painted. Also ive noticed that their are a couple of marks kids made after i painted grrr how to fix this? Ive also got paint on some bathroom floor how do u

Answers:

Stop cutting corners. Do it right the first time and you won't have anything to fix.

You should have paint left over to paint over the marks. On new homes the electrician seem to change the brakes on their cars first before they wire the walls, so there is alot of marks left by the electricians. Painters just touch up the walls with a paint brush with the same color paint...to get rid of the marks,..some can be said for the carpet layers...they also mark up the walls and again the painter uses a dryish paint brush to dab on the paint to hide the marks.
. Cleaning is done immediately while the paint is still wet. And it is wet(soft) for 24 hours so it is easy to get off. If you used latex, then wet a cloth so it is moist and put your pointer finger behind it and rub off the droplets. You can also use your fingernails to scrape it off.
. If you wait 48 hours, it is twice as hard to get off.
The only other thing you can do is paint the floor spots the same color as the floor(close is good) and let it dry.
DONE

done is done on not washing. you\'ll probably have to repaint within five years, and every five years thereafter.

the marks that did not get covered -- use white primer on them and, after it dries for a day, paint over them.

bathroom floor -- what is it made of? tile and similar can be simply scraped off with a razor blade. Lesser floor materials will likely require painstaking work with a putty knife or similar scraper. After a couple hours of this, you'll be certain to do a good job of masking off floors the next time you paint

Type of paint being used dictates how one goes about cleaning it up, especially on the floor. If latex, just soap and water and elbow grease will do the job, the sooner the easier.
The kids, nothing you can do about that, kids tend to trash walls, they bump and scrape and bang around, bulls in the china shop, some adults are like this also. If you continue to make them aware, one day they might get it or you can beat it into them. Your choice.
As far as the not cleaning, most don't, too much grease and crap can screw it, cobwebs and dust can make clumps, once it is on though, it is on. If it is an issue, clean up the areas that are an issue and repaint. I often prime whether I need it or not, forces me to see and fix anything first.

Few people wash down walls before painting. It used to be more important with traditional paints: modern paints are quite forgiving. So if it looks OK, then I wouldn't worry, youll probably be fed up of the colour by the time the paint starts to fail. You might try touching up the marks. Whilst the paint is fresh you can often get away without having to do the whole wall. As for the spillage, if it is water based paint you can get it off with something like a plastic scraper if it will peel off, or pan sponge hot soapy water and cream cleaner (nothing harsh) assuming this is all over vinyl rather than carpet. Dropcloths are a good idea for future reference.
