Preparing for a professional house painting in West Chester, PA can be a tedious task. The good news is that you can hire our professional painters for a job. However, there is a list of things that should be done before your appointment with the painters.
Move All of the Furniture And Cover It
You will need to move all of the outdoor furniture out of the way and try to cover up anything you can’t move before our exterior house painters in Ardmore, PA arrive at your home.
If you are having interior painting, try to cover up furniture, move it away from the wall or out of the room if possible. Light stands and coffee tables are easy for most people to move. However, if you have heavy furniture that you cannot move, then you will need to cover it. You should also push the furniture to the center of the room.
Remove All of the Appliances And Electronics
The television, gaming systems, and entertainment systems also need to be moved out of the way. These items can easily be damaged by the paint. If you cannot move them, then you should place a drape over them. However, it is still possible for the paint to splatter on your appliances and electronics. If you cannot move them out of the room, then you can push them to the center of the room and cover them.
Prep And Clean the Walls
Many people think that there is no need to clean their walls if they will be painted. However, cleaning the walls will help more than hurt. Dirt, dust, and stains can build up on the wall over time. Those things will be visible on the wall even if you paint over them. In fact, the paint can stick to debris and debris, and they can become a permanent part of your wall.
There are several ways that your wall can be cleaned. You can use a rag, water, and detergent. You can also use a sponge. Additionally, you can remove dust with a broom or small vacuum cleaner. You should do this five days before the painters come to your home.
Leave the Area
It can be dangerous for you to inhale the paint fumes in your home. It can also be harder for the painters to work if there are children or pets in the area. Everyone should leave the home when the painters arrive. You may have to leave the home for several hours. However, if the whole house is going to be painted, then you should make plans to be out of the home for a few days.
