What’s the difference between Cair and Cair Fresh?
Both paints share 5 features – air-purifying, anti-bacterial, anti-moulding, odourless and toxic-free. Gush Cair has an additional humidity control feature that maintains healthy moisture levels in your space. Gush Cair Fresh is stain-resistance. This makes it easy to wipe off dirt and stains from your surfaces. We generally recommend using Gush Cair for ceilings or areas prone to moisture. Gush Cair Fresh can be used on other walls prone to dirt, stain and marks.
Is your full colour range available on your website?
No, our website only features 66 curated colours. If you’re looking for a colour that is not on our website, please reach out to us at email@example.com.
I've just got my walls painted. The colour appears to be darker in comparison to what's shown on your website.
While we’ve done our best to represent our colours accurately online, colour presentations can vary depending on the monitor and screen settings. To help in your decision-making, we recommend ordering our sample sheet to confirm your colour choice before proceeding with your paint order. This not only shows you the exact colour, but helps you visualise how it’s going to look on your wall.
How much paint should I get?
You’ll get a good gauge using our handy Paint Calculator. As a general estimate, 1 litre of Gush paint gets you approximately 2 coats for a 5-6 m² surface area. Do note that the calculated quantity may differ for your home, based on how many walls you’ll be painting.
Do you provide colour books?
We don’t have a colour book for our online range, but you can get the sample sheets of the colours you’re interested in. You can do so by selecting Sample Sheets under the product listing.
Is it safe to stay in the house while the painting is done?
Yes, that’s the beauty of using our odourless, toxic-free paints. It’s safe for pregnant women and children to stay as well. You can stay in another room while the painting is done, so the wet walls don’t get touched. Know the science behind this.
Is the paint safe for people with asthma or respiratory illnesses?
Yes, Gush paints are odourless and do not emit any toxic fumes. Here's how one of our customers did it!.
Do I have to use a white base first if I am painting a dark-coloured wall with a lighter colour?
We recommend applying a layer of sealer instead. Besides already being white in colour, the sealer helps your paint coat bind to the wall better and prevents cracking and peeling.
Is it advisable to strip the old paint every time I want to repaint?
We do not recommend stripping off old paint as this would worsen the wall condition. Your best bet is to get a professional plastering service to repair the wall before you repaint it.
I am looking to paint on wood surfaces. Which paint would be a better choice – Gush Cair or Gush Cair Fresh?
Currently, our paints are not ideal for wood surfaces as they are water-based with matte-finishing. When applied to wood, it might cause scratches, dirt marks or peel over time. We recommend using other oil or latex-based paints instead. If you still wish to use our paints on wood, make sure to apply a layer of sealer first to get the best result.
Can I use a sealer from another brand together with Gush Air-purifying paint?
Yes, that’s possible. But our interior paints still give the best results when paired with the Gush sealer.
What material surface can Gush Air-purifying interior paint be applied to?
Wood Application on wooden surfaces is possible, but not recommended. Our paint is unable to replicate the natural beauty of wooden surfaces due to its matte-texture finish. If you wish to paint gush on wood, do apply a layer of sealer first. Plastic Application on plastic surfaces is possible, but not recommended. If you wish to paint gush on plastic, apply a layer of sealer first to help the paint coat bind to the surface better. Metal Gush interior paints should not be applied to metal surfaces as it is a water-based, latex paint that may cause the metal surface to rust. Exterior walls It should not be used as a replacement for exterior paint. As Gush interior paints are specifically formulated for interior environments, they do not perform the same in outdoor conditions.
Do I mix need to mix water with my paints?
No, you don’t need to. Adding too much water will reduce our paints’ air-purifying effectiveness and finish. Give the paint a thorough stir before use so that the pigments are evenly mixed, and you’re good to go. If the paint is too sticky for you, you can dilute it with water, but just a little. The amount of water you add should not exceed 15% of the overall paint solution as this would severely reduce the paints’ efficacy. Only use clean water so the paint doesn’t get contaminated.
Do I need to use a sealer?
Using a sealer neutralises existing alkalis on the wall which typically causes paint to peel, discolour or crack. It also seals off excess moisture trapped within the wall, preventing mold and efflorescence growth. Sealer also makes the paint adhere to the wall better. We always recommend using sealer, especially if you face any of these situations: - Wall-related issues like stubborn marks due to stains, grease or patched-up areas - If the wall was previously painted with oil-based, emulsion paint - You’re changing the wall from a dark to light colour - This is the first paint layer being applied to a new wall - It has been five years since the wall was last painted Our interior paints gives best results when paired with the Gush sealer.
Is there a special application method to use Gush Interior paints?
Nope! Even with its air-purifying features, both Air-purifying and Gush Cair Freshs can be applied like every other paint on the market. We recommend applying two coats of paint for the best results.

What are the different types of window films you provide?
Our window films currently have 5 different transparency levels: 76, 50, 35, 15, and 5. The lower the number, the darker the film is. We are still expanding our range of films, so if you’re on the lookout for more options, follow our socials for the latest updates.
Can Gush’s window films be installed outdoors/exposed to weather?
Our window films are built for indoor installation, so installing them outdoors will cause quicker wear and tear.

We take 1-2 hours for one set of windows, but it varies by the number of windows and if there are existing films to remove. You can get a more specific estimate from our sales representative by dropping us an enquiry here.
When is the right time to install window films?
If you’re renovating your home, it is best to install the window films after all major renovation works are completed (i.e. hacking and drilling). Window films should be installed before any curtains, blinds or grille installation. This would be the ideal time as the site needs to be clean and dust-free for the best workmanship. If you’re not renovating your home, any time is a good time. Just ensure the area is clean and easily accessible for installation.
How does the installation work? Do I need to prepare anything?
We use a cleaning solution to remove any stains and dirt marks before applying the films. You can wipe your windows before the installation date to reduce stubborn dust and dirt. This helps make the installation smoother.
What’s the benefit of your window films over other brands?
Let’s start with a cool fact: heat doesn’t just come from light. It comes from a thermal spectrum that includes UV and infrared heat. Our window films block out heat across a larger range of this spectrum than traditional films. What’s more, Gush window films allow for more visible light to pass through. In short, our films block more outside heat, and let more light in. If you want more details, drop us an enquiry and our sales representative will be glad to give you a better understanding.
Is it scratch resistant? How do I clean it?
Gush window films aren’t scratch resistant, but can be cleaned easily with water and a microfiber cloth. Avoid using abrasive-type cleaning agents or bristle brushes as these will scratch the film.

Yes. With the films’ ability to block more heat out, your indoor temperature can be cooler by up to 9ºC. Learn more about the science behind our films.

Does the window film help with energy saving?
Yes. We worked with Singapore’s Building Construction Authority (BCA) to test the effects of window films on a room’s energy savings. From the test, it has been proven to generate 9.47% of energy savings. Read more about the test here.
Does the window film require special cleaning and care?
Not at all, a simple wipe with a damp microfiber cloth is good enough for cleaning. Avoid using scrubs or abrasive cleaning agents as they will damage the film. Also, close your windows when it rains, as frequent water contact may affect the films too.
Will I be able to see through my window clearly with the window films?
Yes, our films are designed to block outside heat while allowing more visible light to pass through. You’ll still have clear views and enjoy a cooler room temperature!
Will the window film darken my indoor space?

What is Gush paint?
Gush Paints are wall paints with 6 benefits in 1. There are 2 variants — Gush Cair and Gush Cair Fresh. Both have the following benefits: air-purifying, anti-bacterial, anti-moulding, odourless, toxic-free. Gush Cair has an additional humidity-control functionality while Gush Cair Fresh is stain-resistant.
Who is the founder of Gush paint?
Gush was founded by Lester Leong and Benny Jiao. Having suffered from childhood asthma and sinus issues, the entrepreneurs thought of a novel way to turn the largest surface area in our homes — our walls — into passive air-purifiers. Thus Gush was born, with a bunch of other features: anti-moulding, anti-bacterial, odourless, toxic-free, stain-resistant and humidity-control.
How long can Gush paint last?
Gush paints have been put through rigorous testing for quality assurance to industry and comparative standards. As a rule of thumb, Gush paints are effective to last for 7-8 years.
How long does Gush paint take to dry?
Do give ample time in between coatings of Gush paint. In a controlled test environment, our paints are generally touch dry in 1 - 2 hours. However, we do recommend waiting a day or two before applying the second and final coat. This is especially important on rainy days, where drying speeds are significantly slower and could cause cracking. Gush Cair in particular is touch dry within 30 mins at room temperature of 30°C. For the second coating, a minimum of 1 hour of dry time is recommended. In the long term, allow our paints to fully cure for 2 - 3 months before applying any external pressure on it. This ensures it lasts longer.
Does air-purifying paint work?
Yes. Gush Proprietary Catalysts (GPC) in our paint breaks down 99% of VOCs and deodorises your space of chemical fumes within 24 hours. Some VOCs include Benzene, Toluene and Formaldehyde. This air-purification technique does not require the use of electricity, or additional light to work.
Who is the CEO of Gush Singapore?
The CEO and co-founder of Gush is Lester Leong.
What happens if you paint over paint too soon?
Painting your second coat too soon can cause problems such as streaking, peeling, or uneven colour. It is best to ensure layers are completely dry before applying another coat.
