3. Interior Painting - Job Preparation
The first step to prepare for interior painting is clearing the room to protect your belongings and floors. We ask that you remove small items, such as collectibles, or anything you would prefer that someone else not handle from the rooms to be painted before our arrival. When we arrive we will move all furniture to another room or to the center of the room. Then, we will tape off the edges of the room. Once the edges of the room are taped, we will cover the floors and any remaining furniture with plastic. This is the most important step in interior painting, and we will complete this process before any paint is brought into your home!
Once all unpainted surfaces are covered, we will prepare the walls for painting. We will remove all the switch plates and outlet covers. Then, we will fill any holes or cracks and repair any drywall damage. Once the spackle has dried we will sand these areas on the walls to ensure a smooth and even paint application. If needed, we will then prime with the appropriate Sherwin Williams interior primer.
