Painting tips

  

Planning your painting or decorating job:

1) Define your design plan
Make sure what colors you want in the rooms, or exterior. Provide painters and decorators the right color codes so no mistake is made.

2) Find a painter or decorator and request free estimates to compare prices.

3) Clean your rooms and walls
Clean your walls and remove wallpaper for fresh paint or a new wallpaper.

4) Wallpaper removal tools and materials:

  • Electric steamer
  • Utility knife (razor blade)
  • Taping knife (wall scraper)
  • Protective goggles
  • Rubber gloves
  • Heavy-duty detergent
  • Large sponge
  • Patience

5) Fill old cracks and holes.

6) Remove furniture
Remove all the furniture in the rooms of your house, or cover them by large sheets if they are not in the way of the painters & decorators.

7) Stain handeling
Stains on walls should be removed as soon as possible to prevent a reaction between the stain and the wallpaper.
Some stains can be removed with a mild soap and warm water.

8) Clean painted surfaces with water and mild detergent (such as hand dishwashing liquid), or a mild household cleaner, that says on label is safe for painted surfaces.

9) Always rinse after using soap.
