Repainting your home can improve its aesthetic and add to its resale value, and mild weather makes spring a great time to do it. Of course, a key part of the repainting process is the removal of the old coat of paint. This helps ensure that your new coat goes on evenly and lasts as long as possible. Many people elect to strip their own paint rather than have a professional do it, but if you are considering doing this, there are some important things to know about how difficult paint stripping can be and why have your paint professional do it can improve the quality of your new paint job and ultimately save you and your family money on future maintenance.
It’s Safer to Have a Trained Professional Handle Your Paint Stripping
The paint stripping process often uses strong chemicals that can be hazardous to you and your family if they are handled improperly. These chemicals can also stain carpets, floors, and other woodwork in your home if they are spilled. Hiring a professional painting service that knows how to properly handle these chemicals can minimize risk and help you avoid costly accidents.

Another thing to consider is whether or not the paint in your home contains lead. Special measures must be taken when removing lead paint as lead is notoriously poisonous. An experienced painting company can fully remove all the lead paint from your walls and properly dispose of it so that you never have to worry again.
Professionals Offer Higher Quality Paint Removal
Unless you are an experienced painter, it may be challenging to achieve the same thorough, even paint removal as the pros. Paint stripping is difficult work and can be tedious, especially on larger surfaces. If you want to make sure your paint is stripped fully so that the new coat will set evenly, it is likely worth the extra money to hire a professional, as uneven coats typically don’t last as long.
The proper stripping of an old coat of paint sets the foundation for a smooth and long-lasting new coat. Hiring the right professional to do your paint stripping can help make sure you don’t have to repaint sooner than you have to.
