Whether you are looking to hire painters for an interior or exterior paint job, it’s vital that you take all the necessary precautions and do your part to ensure that you are getting the best possible end results.

That’s right, even your professional painting contractor needs your help. Otherwise, problems may occur when you don’t take the necessary steps to ensure that your home is set up and ready for the work that needs to be done.

So how to get your home set up and ready for professional painters? Let’s find out.

Why Do I Have to Prep?

As a homeowner, you always need to prep before work is being done at your house. It ensures that your property does not get damaged, that the end product is as good as it can be, and protects your belongings from drip and debris.

By hiring a professional paint crew, (like us at Painting in Colour Dublin) you can rest assured that taking the right steps in preparing your house will result in on-time job delivery and quality workmanship. It is important for you to remember that painting companies do not take responsibility for damage to any furniture or household items which were not removed.

How to Get Your Home Set Up and Ready

So how can you get your house in order and ready for work to kick off?

 

Paint Over Mould

Room Cleaning

We always suggest that you wash your walls properly at least 24 hours before the work commences. Cleaning helps to get rid of dust, debris, and other build-ups on the walls and ensures an overall sturdier coat. There is no need to rent a cleaning company or equipment – simply use a long handle broom for washing and a small vacuum to get rid of any leftover debris.

Decluttering / Improving Access

When hiring a professional painting service, you can expect a team of painters to come and go on your property. This requires easy access, and wide open space available not only inside the house but most importantly nearby any entrances for the painting equipment.

Remove Wall Hangings and Decorations

Your home is filled with memories and precious heirlooms, so it’s important to protect them. Remove all picture frames, paintings, clocks, candle holders, mirrors, and other decorations that are hanging on your walls. Another important factor to consider when you are removing wall decorations is to store them in a safe place. You will need to wait for the paint to dry before putting it back on the wall.

Move Furniture Away from the Wall

It is extremely important to Move bigger furniture items away from the walls that are being painted. If a lot of space is not needed by the painters, you can easily move furniture to the centre of the house or room and cover it with a heavy canvas drop cloth or plastic sheeting. This will protect your furniture from any drops that may splatter from the walls.

We aim to minimize the chance of any splatters and make use of canvas drop cloths or sheets to protect your floors. But rather be prepared with your own sheets to ensure enough coverage for all the furniture.

Remove Rugs, Curtains, and Throws

Some furniture or decorative items in your home might be able to be salvaged if paint drops are splattered on them, but rugs, curtains, and throws will be doomed to rags if they get in contact with any paint. Remove all rugs, curtains, and throws and store them in a safe place.

Plan to Vacate the Room

Once the interior painting process is in action you want to minimize or completely limit going into the area. Paint fumes are not fun! Make sure that you have removed all necessary items you might need in the time that the area is going to be off-limits. Plan accordingly if the entirety of your home needs to be painted by knowing which rooms can be used, and when.

Be on the Lookout for Damage

Be aware of all damage to your home before work commences so that you can point out any further flaws or damage to your property once the house painters have done their job. Make a list and always be sure to make the painters aware of any existing damage.
