Prepping Your Home for Professional Painters

While professional painters will give your interior walls the upgrade they deserve, there are still things you can do to smooth the process along and maybe even save a few bucks. Before the painters arrive, make sure you do what you can to help; the less time they have to be there, the more money stays in your pocket. Check out this infographic for a few tasks you can get a jump start on and then keep reading to learn more about how to prepare.

 

Clear the Area

Time to tidy up! Make sure the walls are bare. Take things down you can easily carry; paintings, mirrors, and anything that hangs off the wall. Remove window treatments like drapes and any supporting hardware, switch plates, and secure fragile or expensive items. Place everything in another room in marked containers, so putting them back up will be a breeze.
Remove area rugs, chairs, chests, and other furniture you can carry from the room. While professionals may provide clean drape cloths or plastic covers to protect your bulkier items like couches and desks from getting paint on them, you will give painters more room for them to do what they do best. If you plan on having the ceiling painted, take down lighting fixtures that could get in the way.
Depending on the size of the project, there could be multiple painters hard at work. Push heavy items to the center of the room to prevent anything from getting damaged.

Clean, Scrub, and Dust!

Do not let dust and dirt compromise your paint job. Take dry, clean towels to flat surfaces (windowsills, fan blades, dust bunnies that have accumulated in the far corner), vacuum cobwebs in the crevices of the ceiling, and scrub molding and trim to remove any built-up grime. Cleaning these areas now will allow the fresh paint to adhere better.

Matt and Team Padlo are professionals who excel at their craft and provide a great experience. My ROI is seen immediately with the finished product. A significant value add with this project of completing a 23 x 20 rec room for my kids. I've already requested Matt to complete my next painting project. I highly recommend Matt and his team. Thank you.

My husband and I moved into a new construction ( read: all walls were builders white ) home and didn't paint anything for over a year. Once finding out we were pregnant we decided it was time to paint everything while having painting our nursery. We were at a paint store looking at samples and grabbed a bunch of business cards and called every one. Matt Padlo called us back within the hour, came to our house, took measurements and gave us a quote all in the same day. As a matter of fact we hired Padlos Perfect Painting and they started work BEFORE most of the others returned our call. Matt also had a designer come do a walk through ( at no additional cost ) which ended up being a huge help, we ended up picking three different shades of gray, and adding some accent walls, and painting our babys closet a gorgeous tangerine orange which we absolutely love. Matt and his team were polite and professional while keeping our house clean and furniture protected. They were quick and did amazing work. I can't recommend them enough!
