All Painting & Restoration Lists the Steps that a Professional Painter Will Take to Paint Your Home
Protection for Belongings Before Painting: When you are about to do a job that is messy most people take the time to protect themselves and their belongings so they are not ruined in the process. When you are about to paint, even if you are a professional, the job can become messy. The paint is wet and the potential that it will drip exists. If the paint is being sprayed on the walls the dust will settle on other surfaces. That is why taking time to protect your belongings is the first step in a professional painter’s job. We will go around and cover anything that is not being painted like outlets, switches, fans and of course the carpets. They will also cover any furniture that might be left in the room when the painting is going to happen. This is a very important part of the process so that your belongings are not ruined or damaged.
Paint Preparation: When you are having your home painted you need to ensure that the area is prepared. The walls are not going to be perfect unless they have just been built. If you have been living in the home or bought it from someone then the walls will have some scrapes, dents and holes. They need to be sure that these areas are repaired. If they are left and not prepared properly they will stand out when the new paint is in the walls. This will not give you the fresh new finish that you want. When you hire a professional we will use spackle and other products to cover these spots and smooth them out. They may also need to texturize the wall to match the rest of the room.
Interior Painting: This is the fun part! You may want to meet with professionals to choose the perfect color for your home. A color consultant will be able to go over what colors might work best. They will also pick up the paint and bring the equipment that is needed to do the job. They also will ensure that the finish is consistent and the area is cleaned up when they are done.
