Preparing Your Home to be Professionally Painted

If you’re looking to have your home painted as efficiently and quickly as possible, there are a few ways that you can prepare your house. At Ethereal Painters, we’ve got years of experience in the trade so let us know what’s up with an estimate!

How to Prepare Your Home to be Painted

Once you choose a colour and hire professional painters make sure to follow these simple steps: remove objects in room & cover floor boards with dropcloths so there is no damage due to staining while they’re working.

Remove All Wall Hangings

Before painting, make sure to take down all pictures and other wall ornaments. Store them somewhere safe that isn’t going to be in the way such as a closet. Remove any nails from the walls too; you should also remove curtains/blinds which may interfere with your work or get splattered on it!

Move Furniture

The furniture should be moved away from the walls to make space. It is best to move out all of it if possible, but your painter will bring sheets and dropcloths for anything that stays in there.

Prepare the Walls

Coordinate with your painter to find out whether they will fill in screw and nail holes in the walls, or if this task is left for you. If it’s up to you, complete a day early so that filler has time dry properly.

Clean Surfaces and Carpets

Before having a professional painter come, make sure that you vacuum and dust your home. Once the fresh coat of paint is applied to walls it will be susceptible to capturing more particles like dirt or hair which can cause problems for both surfaces once painting has begun on top of them so cleanliness throughout this process makes life easier later down the line!
