We Handle the Prep Work so You Don’t Have To

A lot of people don’t realize just how much work goes into preparing your walls for a new coat of paint. Here’s part of our process for interior painting projects:

Preparing your home’s interior for painting is crucial for achieving a smooth and long-lasting finish. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you get started:

1. Clear the Room: We remove furniture, decorations, and any other movable items from the room. If possible, we take them to another room or store them away from the painting area.

2. Protect Floors and Furniture: We cover the floors with drop cloths or plastic sheeting to protect them from paint splatters and spills. We use painter’s tape to secure the drop cloths and protect the baseboards. We cover large furniture pieces with plastic or move them out of the room if feasible.

3. Clean the Surfaces: We dust and clean the walls, ceiling, and trim to remove any dirt, grease, or grime that could affect the paint adhesion. We use a mild detergent solution and a sponge or cloth to clean the surfaces thoroughly. We allow them to dry completely before proceeding.

4. Repair Damaged Surfaces: We inspect the walls for any cracks, holes, or imperfections. We fill them with spackling compound or putty, and then sand the patched areas smooth once they’re dry. For larger holes or cracks, we use mesh drywall tape before applying the spackling compound.

5. Sand the Surfaces: We lightly sand the walls, trim, and any other painted surfaces to create a smooth surface and promote better paint adhesion. We use fine-grit sandpaper (usually 120-150 grit) and a sanding block or sanding sponge to sand away any rough spots or bumps. We wipe down the surfaces with a tack cloth or damp cloth to remove any sanding dust.

6. Prime if Necessary: If we’re painting over dark or heavily stained walls, or if we’re making a drastic color change, applying a coat of primer can help ensure better coverage and adhesion of the paint. We use a high-quality primer appropriate for your surface type (e.g., latex primer for drywall, oil-based primer for wood) and allow it to dry completely before painting.

7. Mask Off Areas: We use painter’s tape to mask off areas that you don’t want to be painted, such as trim, windows, and door frames. Make sure the tape is applied smoothly and securely to create clean paint lines.

8. Gather Painting Supplies: We make sure you have all the necessary painting supplies, including brushes, rollers, paint trays, paint stirrers, and paint cans. We choose high-quality paint brushes and rollers for smoother application and better results.

9. Ventilate the Room: Proper ventilation is essential when painting indoors to help dissipate paint fumes and speed up drying times. We open windows and doors if possible, and use fans to improve airflow.

10. Start Painting: Once everything is prepared, we’re ready to start painting! We work systematically from top to bottom, starting with the ceiling, then moving on to the walls and trim. We apply paint evenly and smoothly, using long, overlapping strokes. We allow each coat to dry completely before applying additional coats.

By following these steps and taking the time to properly prepare your home’s interior for painting, we achieve professional-looking results that will enhance the beauty and value of your space. That’s the difference of hiring a professional painting contractor to handle your interior painting needs.
