How to Prepare Your Home for Interior Painting, Purcell, Oklahoma

Changing your interior painting is one of the simplest ways to transform your home. Taking the proper precautions will ensure your paint job looks its absolute best. Assist your painting contractor by readying your home for the process with the following guide. 

3-Step Guide to Preparing for Painting Contractors

1. Clear the Way

Make it easier for painters to enter the room and move around by removing furniture. Furthermore, while professional contractors take the utmost precautions to protect your property during the painting process, you’ll make their jobs simpler and eliminate any possibility of damage by removing the objects, including carpets and curtains, altogether. It’ll also protect them from drywall dust, ensuring that you won’t have to clean items later. 

2. Address Your Walls

Remove nails, bolts, or other hardware used to install these items. Ensure large problems such as mold or rot are addressed. 

Talk to your professional painter about what’s included in their work. They may clean your walls for you, but if not, be sure to remove smudges and spots with mild detergent and water, leaving plenty of time for them to dry. They may also fill any holes with spackle on your behalf. They’ll generally cover electrical outlets and the floors for you. If they don’t provide these services, protect your property by performing them yourself. 

3. Clean the Room

Thoroughly vacuum or mop your floors prior to the arrival of the painters to remove dust. If dust or dirt gets blown onto the painted wall before it dries, it can ruin the appearance of the job. Use a duster or vacuum extension to remove cobwebs and other debris from the walls and ceiling. Once the room is ready, seal it off to prevent pets or people from sullying it before your painting contractors arrive.
