Are you aware that the most important part of painting
preparation? If preparation steps are not carried out
properly or accordingly, there may be some hindrances.
Professional painters would usually know key to successful house painting project
is preparation. Room
that are properly prepared for a
the cleaning up will be easy and look professional.
Here are some steps that I found very useful:
Step 1 - Vacant the room as clean as possible. Remove huge
and bulky furniture. Remember to ensure there are nothing
can hinder the painting and preparation.
Step 2 – Remove any decorations ie Paintings, Posters or
Photo frame etc, from the walls or ceilings. Clear out all
visible items ie. Nails, Tape or kind of hangers. Do
patching of holes, you do not require them.
Step 3 – Remember every spot of your area
and items are properly or completely covered to prevent any
drop paint to paint. This can help greatly help avoid
painting area that you don't wish to stain it. Ensure every
spot is securely cover to avoid mess later. Cover
floor with unwanted newspaper furniture and unwanted
clothes or shift the furniture out of the room.
Step 4 - All walls must be cleaned before doing your
painting. Dirtied walls will make the paint not stick evenly
and caused the painting to look mess. Mild
soap detergent to doing the wall cleaning will do the trick
or use trisodium phosphate (TSP) for tough grease stains.
Use sponge mopping for cleaning of the entire walls making less tedious
and faster. Wash and rinse with water and let the wall for drying.
Step 5 – All electric cover & light fixture must be
removed. To prevent any loss of the screws after the
fixtures is being removed; reinsert all the screws back to
the position where the electrical cover and light fixture
are. If light fixture aren't able to be removed, to
protect fixtures, they must wrapped some of unwanted
Lastly, to say it again is, the more detailed you do for the
preparation in those area which you don't want the
paint to platter on, you will spend less time in cleaning
the messy work left behind due to the paint.
Always remember that mostly 80% of work involve painting is
part of the preparation.
