Professional painters might do some extra things for you, but remember that you are paying them to paint: not move obstacles around. Canyon Painting shares tips to make your Sedona painting project go smoothly.
As it is often said, “Time is money!” Consider doing these things yourself before your professional painting company shows up for work:
- Clean your walls. Why would you clean the walls if they are going to be freshly painted? The reason is, paint causes one to notice physical blemishes in a wall, like dust or dirt. In fact, dust and dirt are more visible after painting, because the paint actually sticks these substances to the wall permanently. To clean the walls, just mix a solution of water and a mild detergent and wipe it on the wall with a sponge. Don’t soak. Just get most of the surface stains and dust off. Make sure the walls have time to dry before painting time.
- Designate a space as staging area. Professional painters set up shop in one or two areas that allows them plenty of space to store their supplies. It will be helpful to make room for them to do this.
- Move the furniture. Your painters will likely cover up the furniture with plastic sheets, but you still should make sure it’s not in their way.
- Remove outlet covers and switch plates. Because these things are usually plastic, removing dried paint isn’t always easy. This step is especially important if you have expensive or vintage covers and switch plates.
