Of course you want a great-looking finish, and long-lasting, beautiful results. But, first you need to prepare and make sure of a few things. First, the surface you intend to paint on must be clean, smooth, and dry. It must also be coated using the correct primer.
If you need help, our team of experts can provide you with additional tips and advice on which primer is appropriate for your project. Bear in mind that we also have all the tools you may need for surface prepping. These include wire brushes, paint scrapers, ladders, wood fillers, putty knives, and speckling paste.
You need to prepare the room before starting your painting project. This will not only make it easier to paint. It will also protect your home from the usual spills and splatters.
Aside from the friendly advice from our experts, we also offer drop cloths, caulk, and masking tape, among others.
Getting Ready to Paint
Get pictures, mirrors, draperies, hardware, and area rugs out of the way.
Move furniture out or in the middle of the room. Cover everything with drop cloths.
Tape off all woodwork, and tape plastic drop cloths down.
Wrap some plastic around lighter fixtures, and use some masking tape to cover the hardware that can’t be removed.
Open a door or window to improve ventilation.
Clean the surface as necessary.
After priming the surface, fill gaps between ceilings, walls, crown moldings, as well as other interior trim with caulk.
**Caution: When you’re using oil-based coating, keep paint away from sparks, heat, and open flames. Refrain from smoking. Extinguish flames, heaters, and pilot lights. Switch off electrical tools, appliances, stoves, and other electrical ignition sources. Keep the work area well-ventilated as you paint and until all vapors disappear.
