Are you getting ready for your professional interior painting? Here are a few things you will want to do before the ladders arrive.
Take everything off the walls
Do you have a lot of knick-knacks and frames hanging on the walls in your main living areas? It’s time to take all of these items off the walls and stack them up. If you have a large photo collage with several pieces, you might want to take a picture of it before you disassemble it. This can give you a reference for how to rehang all of your items once the paint is finally dry.
Patch or fill in holes
Some homeowners have a lot of small holes on their walls from where they previously hung pictures. These holes might not be a big deal to you, but it is a good idea to fill them in prior to the painting. Keep in mind that this will need to be done before the day the painters arrive. Depending on the size of the hole, you will usually need to fill it with spackle and then sand it once everything is dry. Make sure that the entire wall is smooth before the painters get started.
Clean the walls
Did your little Picasso cover the living room wall with crayon? It’s usually a good idea to scrub those spots off the wall before you have a painting crew arrive. You don’t have to worry too much about those scuff marks and dirty fingerprints, but other substances should come off if possible. Substances on the surface of the wall lead to inconsistent paint adherence. This can really change the way that your paint job turns out, so be sure to clean as much off the walls as possible.
Move the furniture
Before your painters arrive, it is always a nice gesture to move as much of the furniture as possible. All you need to do is pick your pieces up and place them in the center of the room, allowing the painters enough room to work freely around the perimeter. Ask whether you need to place a drop cloth over the furniture as well. This could be very important if your painting crew is going to be using a sprayer. If your pieces are too heavy for you to move, the painting crew can usually help.
