Clean up for the Paint Zoom is pretty easy and straight forward. You will need to clean your Paint Zoom after every use before you put it up to make sure that it works right the next time you use it. If you do not clean your Paint Zoom, the dried material will make it almost impossible for you to operate your Paint Zoom the next time you need to use it.
Since cleaning is so easy, though, you won’t have to worry about anything drying in the Paint Zoom and you can jump right back into painting whenever you need to.
The first thing you will need to do in order to clean your Paint Zoom is turn the base motor off. Once it is off, you will need to press the spray trigger to ensure that any material in the gun and tube goes back into the canister. Once all the material is back in the canister, you can unscrew it and dump out the remaining material.
Now, that your canister is empty of leftover material, it is necessary to clean it out. You should use the appropriate cleaning solution for the material that you were using to paint with. If the material is latex based, then you can use warm soapy water. If it is oil based, then you will need to use mineral spirits to clean it.
Once you have the canister cleaned out, you will need to put some more cleaning solution in the canister and hook everything back up again. You should take this outside and stay away from anything that might be flammable as well. Set the base on the ground and stretch the hose out all the way. Turn the motor on and press the spray trigger for 20 seconds, or until the cleaning solution comes out clear.
Once it is cleaned, you should turn it all off and wipe down the inside of the canister along with the outside of the entire unit. Disassemble the nozzle, pattern dial and the suction tube and clean them with a brush to ensure there is no material left that may dry and cause you issues later on when you want to use it again.
