Preparing your home for interior painting is much more demanding than exterior painting as you need to cover up items and move stuff around. To avoid unnecessary hassle when getting your home ready for a paint job, make sure you follow a structured plan. Here’s how you can do that.
Strip the Walls
Clear your walls and remove any and all paintings or wall art from them before the house painters arrive. Be sure to keep the removed items in a safe place outside of the work area. Consider wrapping them up in plastic sheets to keep them safe from dust and grime. If you do not intend to re-hang the wall art in the same place, remove the nail or be sure to ask your painter to remove it so that the hole will get patched up before painting. If you need help removing the items from the wall, we will be happy to do this for you.
Move the Ornaments and Showpieces
Ornaments and fragile decor can easily break if not handled gently. Therefore, make sure you remove all the collectibles and decoration pieces and store them someplace safe. Cover them in a cloth or paper to keep them free of stains and scratches. You should pack up all decorations when you have enough time on your hands so that you don’t rush. Trying to wrap everything up hastily can lead to unfortunate mishaps.
Creative Painting Systems will move your furniture for you. We will move the furniture to the center of the room or in an area out of the way, and we will cover your furniture with plastic wrap and tape to protect your furniture from any dust or paint. If you have any fragile or antique furniture that you would rather handle yourself, you can do so prior to the arrival of the painters.
Prepare your Walls
Most residential painters in areas such as Wake Forest, Raleigh, Rolesville, Youngsville, Knightdale, in North Carolina, offer these preparation services. However, some may not. So you must talk to your painters about it at the time of hiring. And if they do not offer the said service, then be sure you do it yourself before the painters arrive.
