If you’re tired of the colours of your home or are looking for an affordable way to upgrade the look and feel of your home, getting it professionally painted will give you that change you are looking for. Painting your home can be a stressful task to take on by yourself, which means preparation is key. If you’ve made the decision to hire a professional for the job, the good news is that you are investing in quality work that will last for many years to come. Below, we list the things that you should do to prepare your home to be professionally painted.
Remove Anything You Have Hanging On Your Wall
The first thing you should do is make sure that pictures, mirrors and other wall ornaments are taken down before painting. Make sure you store them in a safe area, where they cannot get damaged. You should also remove any nails, tacks and screws from the walls. Any curtains that fall over or near the areas that you will be painting should be taken down as well, as they might get paint splattered on them.
Move Your Furniture
You should move all of your furniture to the centre of the room, or away from the areas that will be getting painted if you are doing a smaller paint job. To be safe, you can move the furniture to a different room. Most professional painters will bring protective sheets and drop cloths to put over furniture.
Prepare the Walls
You should ask your painters if they will fill in the screw and nail holes. If you decide to take on this task, it’s best that you get done a day or two before so that it has time to dry.
Clean All Surfaces and Carpets
Before your professional interior painting team comes in, you should vacuum and dust your home. After your walls have been painted, they will be susceptible to dust and debris.
Ask Your Painters in Advance
The best way to know exactly what you should do to ensure a smooth painting process is to contact your professional painters, as everyone has different processes. This way, you’ll be able to get everything done that you need to rather than running around last minute trying to complete certain chores.
