7 Professional Tips To Completing the Perfect Bathroom Paint Job

7 Tips on Painting Your Bathroom

Bathroom Painting in CTIn Connecticut, bathroom paint can be subject to extreme temperature and environmental changes, especially in late fall and winter.  It’s important to follow some guidelines to ensure your bathroom paint job turns out great.

When it comes to interior painting, your bathroom is in many ways no different to the bedroom, living room, hallway, kitchen, or other parts of the home. The same basic tips work for painting a bathroom along with all other parts of your house. However, there are a few differences that you will need to know so you can get the best results.

Naturally, you’ll want to use drop cloths to protect the floor, sink, and countertop and start by painting the ceiling first and working your way down. Another tip is using rollers for large sections of the wall and brushes to get around objects such as window sills, sinks, outlets, and so forth. Here are a few more tips that will help you paint your bathroom most efficiently, so it will look the way that you want.

Preparation: Naturally, you’ll want to decide on the colors of paint that you will use. Plus, you’ll want to purchase paints that are designed to hold up against the heat and humidity found in bathrooms.

Remove the Toilet: This will depend on if the toilet tank is next to the wall which makes it impossible to get behind without removal. While removing the toilet is a hassle, it’s also straightforward and can be done quickly so you can remove and replace in one day.

Cover Door, Window Trims, & Baseboard Moldings with Painter’s Tape: You can smooth down the tape with a putty knife, so the paint does not get underneath.

Remove All Decorations, Hangings, and Cover Electrical Outlets: This is what you do when painting any interior room. Simply take down what can be removed and cover the outlets and fixtures, so you can paint without worrying about touching things that you do not want to have painted.

Bathroom Painting in CTWork the Windows, Doors, Wall Switches, and Outlets First: Another standard piece of advice for interior painting, once you have completed the ceiling, paint the areas that you have covered in painter’s tape first to create a strong border and then work your way around the room in a single direction.

Use Primer on Walls for brighter paints: If you are looking to brighten up your bathroom, paint the dark walls with a bright primer first before applying the color that you want on top. This will help create a brighter appearance for your bathroom.

When painting your bathroom, you’ll want to use at least two coats, which means painting the first coat and letting it dry before you add the second. If you are painting the ceiling, it will need two coats applied and the paint to dry before you start on the rest of the room. It also means when starting on one side of the room for your first coat, do the same for your second coat.

You’ll find that painting your bathroom is not really all that different compared to painting any other room in your home. If you follow the steps, you should get the results you want with a little time and effort.

While painting a bathroom is similar to painting most rooms in your home there may be some challenges that you would not face otherwise.  The plumbing and bathroom fixtures may need to be worked around or moved.  There may be tile in parts of your bathroom.  And not having access to the bathroom for an extended period of time for a family can prove to be a huge hassle.  It’s best to hire a professional interior painter in CT who can get the job done quickly and efficiently.

Interior Painting Tips From House Painter Near Essex, CT

Painting the interior of your home is a real mood lifter!  Studies have shown that adding a splash of color by painting

an accent wall, or changing an old color to a fresh new color helps brighten spirits, especially since the daylight hours are shorter!  This blog “Interior Painting Tips From House Painter Near Essex, Ct will offer some good suggestions.

The first is using a Zero- VOC and Zero Emissions odorless paint.  One great brand that we use is by Benjamin Moore call NATURA, here are some of the benefits:  Zero VOC and emissions, 100% acrylic, spatter-resistant, certified asthma and allergy friendly, washable, self priming on most surfaces, dries quick.

  Winter time is really the best conditions for interior painting. In the warmer months humidity can really cause longer drying times and even affect the finished product in a negative way.  The cooler air is great for curing the paint.

Another good tip is to put some samples up on the walls and just notice how the color changes with the light throughout the day.  You will be amazed at how different a color looks from morning to night!

Best Time To Paint Interior, Guilford Ct

There are several good reasons to paint your home in the late fall and winter months!  Some people don’t want to because of the odor and fumes.  Luckily, there are great solutions to these issues!  This is why I created this blog “Best Time To Paint Interior, Guilford Ct”

One good reason is the cost, in the late fall months and the winter months many painting contractors slow down, they are looking to fill schedules for work!  What does this mean to you?  A discounted price! When we are busy, we are not going to discount work, but when there  is a need we will do what we can to secure you as a long term customer!

We have been house painters, painting contractors in the Guilford Ct area, the Madison Ct area and up and down the shoreline for many years and we are always offering great coupons on seasonal work to book it as early as possible! So when should you start looking for a house painter for interior painting in the late fall and winter months?? Believe it or not, start in August and September!  Why not?  You get a great price and by booking an interior house painter early, you get priority booking!  This matters, especially if you are planning a nice winter vacation get away, or if you have company coming!

But more importantly we care about our customers, and a lot has changed in the painting industry since we started house painting in Branford Ct many years ago! When we started out in the mid 70’s there was not a lot of information about VOC’s.  Now, there is so many websites and places that provide free information about this.  We want to give our customer’s not just a great interior paint job, but the healthiest way to do it! That means paying attention to what’s in the paint!

Now that all said, some people will say “the house smells and we can’t open the windows because it’s cold outside”!  Well, there have been a lot of improvements over the years with paints.  I remember for many years, when we would paint inside, the customer would smell it for days!  Even long after it dried, you would walk in the house and all you could smell was the paint as if we had just put it on!  NO MORE!

Benjamin Moore has a line of paint that is called Natura Waterborne Zero-Voc and Zero Emissions Paint !  This product line was created by Benjamin Moore to provide the most eviromentally friendly paint, it is not only a zero VOC paint, it offers absolutely NO EMISSIONS!  Which means no smell, no inhaling harmful chemicals long after the paint dries!  Consumers think that because the paint is dry and you can’t smell it any longer that it’s not putting out harmful Emissions, this couldn’t be further from the truth!  This is why when you decide to paint the interior of your home using a professional house painter in your area or a house painter in Guilford Ct you need to request the NO VOC and Zero Emissions paint. 

The initials VOC stand for Volatile Organic Compounds, these compounds are a large group of carbon-based chemicals.  these compounds have been linked to respiratory illnesses!  There is a misconception that if you can’t smell the paint, then there are no VOC’s, there is paint that has VOC’s and they have no odor!  

VOC levels indoors are usually about five times higher then outdoors.  When studies have been done focusing on the effect that VOC’s have on our health they take into consideration they have found that low levels over a long period of time can cause many harmful health outcomes such as:

Headaches, Nose irritation, eye irritation, Nausea, Vomiting, dizziness, asthma symptoms can become worse.  Long term exposure to high levels of VOC’s can increase the risk of:  Cancer, liver damage, kidney damage and central nervous system damage. I don’t want to freak you out, but it’s always good to get a broad spectrum of understanding of this product.

There are a lot of good websites out there that help educate the public about VOC’s and air pollution that we breathe in our homes and ways to reduce it. This can feel daunting, but small steps add up to big ones!

Unfortunately there are many places in our home that has VOC’s such as carpets, glues, sealing caulks, vinyl floors, upholstery fabrics, varnishes and many more.  So, whenever you can, reduce this chemical outpouring by investigating what you are buying, installing or applying and see if there are other variations without the harmful VOC’s.  Every little step helps, especially the paint on the walls!

We are painters in Guilford Ct and right next store to our little town is another great town called Branford Ct.  We go to Ring’s End there as oftern as possible because they carry high quality products and the staff is very knowledgeable!  Their NO VOC paint line is called Nautra Zero and Zero Emissions Paint.  It cost a little bit more then the paint with the harmful chemicals, but when your health and your families health is at risk, cost is not the point!

Here is a great link to Benjamin Moore site with great information about this paint:

http://www.benjaminmoore.com/en-us/for-your-home/product-catalog?prod=Natura_Waterborne_Interior_Paint#piSheen=512&tab=2

Here’s another thought that has nothing to do with house painting but everything to do with your family’s  health, what about the arts and crafts paints that you and your children use?? Is is non VOC ? Don’t assume it is, be sure to check it out. I came across a great article when I was researching this article and I never ever thought that there might be VOC in paints that we give our children to play with, or paint that would have it.  Here is a link to a website that I found this on and I thought that it was very interesting.

http://www.networx.com/article/enjoy-good-healthy-fun-with-no-voc-paint

So, as you can see, there is a lot of areas in our homes and lives that have chemicals, and any little step we can take to slowly start eliminating them really adds us.  It goes far beyond hiring an interior painting contractor, guilford ct to help eliminate this stuff.  I have two kids, my son is 28 and my daughter is 25 and I shudder to think of the many times when they were little we played with play dough and paints and my daughter loved to chew on play dough!  I know it sounds gross, but that was her thing no matter how many times I asked her not to!  Now after reading about toxic chemicals in the arts and crafts products, what was my daughter actually putting in her mouth??   Also, I must apologize for having to sprinkle the phrases ” paint interior, Guilford Ct” and “Paint interior, Madison Ct”  I have to do this during this blog so that the search engines pick up my article and rank it so you can see it.   We are putting out regular blogs about all kinds of stuff that helps improve our lives.

Like I said earlier in the article we have been painters for many many years and our customers always call us when they have painting needs.  We have become fond of our customers and we do care.  Of course we want to give a high quality job in a timely manner, but now we want to make sure it’s a healthy one as well.

Here is a link to another Eco friendly paint company,  I copied a paragraph from their front page website, I will post a link below to their website so you can check them out as well.

Unlike conventional paints, ECOS Paints do not release any noxious gases or any other environmentally harmful chemicals.

OUR PETS’ HEALTH!!!

Here is another interesting post from the above Eco website, it’s about our pets!

Why do pets need special paint?

Everybody knows that pets can be much more sensitive to smells, chemicals and pollutants than human beings are. But, it is not only our pets’ ability to detect these chemicals that makes them more sensitive, the fact that they are generally smaller than humans makes them more likely to suffer serious health issues as a consequence of exposure.
Traditional paints contain a cocktail of harmful chemicals, solvents and VOCs. We notice them as odors, but many of them do not smell and these pollutants can off gas from paint for several years. For animals, this problem is doubled, because they are in the habit of actively sniffing their environment and even licking, biting and chewing things that we would never put in our mouths. As a result, pets actively ingest the harmful chemicals that normally remain on walls, floors and doors.

Wow!!! I am an animal lover! I have an English Mastiff that is only two years old and weigh’s about 200lbs right now, and he feels that it’s his main priority in life to lick anything on the floor and sniff anything at all!!! This is really making me realize I need to also re-think my floors. We are going to sand and refinish them this winter, but I  think this article has made me realize I need to do some research on hardwood floor stains, and clear coats and see if I can find ones that have no harmful chemical’s.  One sec, I am going to check this out and post what I find below.

Good news! The above company offers healthy stains!  Let’s see if I can find another website.

Benjamin Moore also offers floor stain with No VOC

This is really amazing and I bet if we dig further we could find all kinds of ways to eliminate toxic chemicals from our home. I would imagine that it’s in our carpets and furniture as well!

Here is a link to a green carpet company that explains what’s in our carpets:

http://greenandhealthy.info/toxiccarpeting.html

Here is an excerpt from the website about new carpets:

  • Contain toluene, benzene, formaldehyde, ethyl benzene, styrene, acetone and a host of other chemicals that are known carcinogens and produce fetal abnormalities in test animals. These chemicals also cause hallucinations, nerve damage and respiratory illness in humans. Please refer to this article: “Toxic Emissions from New Carpets

I would suggest visiting this website and also doing some searching on your own about the toxins in our carpets.  Here is a link to another website that gives instructions and tips on how to clean your carpets without harmful chemicals:

http://www.healthychild.org/easy-steps/clean-carpets-without-dangerous-chemicals/

When I think about when my children were toddlers crawling around on my carpet, leaving a snack on the carpet, I shudder!  But for most of us  we did then what we knew then, when we knew better we did better!  I think that’s the best way to look at it!  I never even thought about chemical’s in my carpets when I remodeled my house 26 years ago!  Well, at least moving forward I can look at things with fresh eyes and make sure that I try to find solutions that are the healthiest when purchasing items and products for my home.   I would love to write another blog about the food we choose to eat, since I became a vegetarian accidentally almost 4 years ago, and how my health has improved on a steady basis.  I will save that for my personal blog.

I hope that that this blog “Best Time To Paint Interior, Guilford Ct” has been really helpful. I started out just wanting to inform my customers about a non toxic no VOC and no emissions paint that is available, and through that it has lead to all the other areas in our home that are just as harmful! Truly informative for me.  Thank you for taking the time to read this blog “Best Time To Paint Interior, Guilford Ct”  I hope it is most usefull!  Please know that if you have any questions you can always reach us at 203-458-2073 or email me or Dave at coastlinepaintersllc@comcast.net

How To Solve A Paint Problem, Old Saybrook Ct

I’ve been in the painting business for over 37 years and have received many calls from people when paint goes wrong. That’s why we created this blog How To Solve A Paint Problem, Old Saybrook CT.   Paint problems always pop up for “do it yourselfers”  we’ve all been there! We are happy to answer any questions you have after reading this blog, our contact info is at the bottom.

The most common issue and paint problem is when paint peels or bubbles. This can be caused by bad adhesion or age, some other things that can cause this is exposing latex paint to moisture shortly after it has dried, or applying an oil based or alkyd paint over a previous latex base paint, this doesn’t work. Another way to cause issues is improper surface preparation, or painting on a damp, dirty or hot surface. This is why we offer free professional consultations over the phone or in person, even if you are doing the job yourself, please call us for advice and the way to do it, we are very happy to help anyone that calls.
Why are we willing to do this? Because that’s how we became successful, by taking the focus off our own bottom line and instead caring for the customer, it all comes back to us in the way of good will.

I mentioned this already, but you really need to be sure that you are not dealing with lead based paint, it’s very dangerous to your health and your children’s health. Especially if you just moved into a new home, it’s a great idea before you do anything with the walls or trim to have the surfaces tested for lead if it’s an older home (before 1978) There are kits at hardware or paint stores for this. Children are the most impacted by lead based paint, it can be hard to detect at first, and symptoms and signs don’t usually appear until there are high levels in the body. I will be doing another blog on this, so please check back in the next week or so for it.

Now, back to the topic of this blog, a few ways to help prevent surface problems from occurring after painting and lesson paint problems:
1. Always make sure that the surface you are painting has been properly cleaned and then given adequate time to dry completely.
2. If you have stains on the wall, be sure to purchase a high quality primer from Benjamin Moore or Sherwin Williams, these are the two companies I deal with all the time, and they stand behind their product if there is any problem, they are quick to help resolve the issue.
3. If you are dealing with new joint compound be sure to use flat latex paint or latex primer.
4. If its the summer make sure it’s not real humid or hot outside, even if you have air conditioning on, be sure that it’s not one of those extra humid hot days outside, this can greatly affect the overall quality of the paint job.
5. Let the surfaces dry completely before exposing the surfaces to any type of moisture! If you are painting in a bathroom or kitchen, checkout a paint that is made for this specifically! Some great products are Benjamin Moore’s Aura Bath & Spa paint, this is a great product! In the past only glossier sheen paints were recommended for high moisture areas like kitchens, bathrooms for their durability and easy to wipe clean the walls. Now, you can still get these great benenfits, and have the option of a Matte finish with a product like Benjamin Moore’s Aura Bath and Spa.
6. Another solution is to install fans or venting systems in rooms that have high moisture.

Bubbles are another negative symptom after painting that causes paint problems, that I get calls from frustrated homeowners that worked so hard to create a beautiful paint job, only to find that a short time later, there is bubbling happening! If after some time the blisters don’t go down on their own, you will need to scrape and sand the areas.

Scraping. Proper scraping is so important to prevent any painting problems!  If you are doing interior work, you want to get all the scraping done first, then you do the sanding. If you are doing exterior work, you can do the scraping and sanding as part of the same process. If you are sanding outside, be sure to cover windows and doorways as the dust can definitely find it’s way into the house, and that can be a job in itself cleaning up the dust on the inside when you aren’t ready for it. Another area that you need to be very protective of is the plant life outside, shrubs, flowers, especially gardens! You can get a light weight clean drop cloth and cover these areas carefully before starting. If you lift the cloth and you find that some chips or heavy dust got on the ground, don’t panic. Carefully pick up the chips and carefully scrape some dirt with the dust to get it out of the ground. It’s obviously important with gardens since you will be eating what is there and it can get into your soil and into your food.

How to scrape the walls before sanding: You want to scrape first especially if there is bubbling or peeling! A scraping tool is the best ally in this project, it’s a simple device that can help eliminate most of the walls previous paint. A good idea is to divide the area into smaller parts (be sure to wear safety goggles over your eyes). The reason I suggest dividing the area into smaller parts is the clean up, it’s easier to scrape and then clean up the floor of the falling pieces of old paint and then move onto the next section. It can be very daunting to scrape a large area, look back and see a huge mess that needs to be cleaned up, this also helps serve you in case you have to stop the job quickly because you got called away to something else, it can take minutes to clean up the small section before you have to leave. When you come back, there is a clean set up space waiting for you. This also helps because you can tie up the garbage bag and take it with you to throw out and it’s not sitting there. On another note, it can be so encouraging to see your progress when you do small sections at a time and it encourages you to keep going. It is hard work, but done the right way, it goes quickly and efficiently, that’s the name of the game, and that translates into a beautiful job and no paint problems!

Before you start to sand, make sure to use a large roll of plastic ( you can purchase them at the hardware or painting store) You will need to get some tape and close off any openings in the room so that the debris from sanding doesn’t go to other parts of the house or rooms. Also cover any air conditioning or heating ducs.

Another solution for the high areas is a sanding pole, these are very handy, all you have to do is attach the sanding paper to the end of the pole and you are ready to go, ideally you should get a pole that allows you to adjust the height of the pole, otherwise, you will be limited on the low parts.

You can also cover the floor with some resin paper (definitely do this when you start to paint or use a good drop cloth) When sanding be sure to choose good sand paper, perhaps a 120 grit paper. You want to fold the paper in three parts so that you can sand on one part of the paper and when that looks like it’s worn down, its easy to just flip the sand paper over and you have a fresh paper waiting for you.

Another way to prevent paint problems is sanding! You want to do a nice sanding job because sanding serves several purposes in itself. It removes layers of chipped flaking paint. Sanding also helps by removing a gloss finish, this way it helps with paint adhesion. You don’t want a shiny surface before you paint. If you are doing a large room, you can use an electric sander. This really helps ease the work load and wear and tear on your body! Just be sure to have the right grit, not to heavy and let the sander do all the work! Gently hold it and it will glide over the wall. There are sanders that have a bag attached to collect any sanding powder, you still want to tape off rooms because although it collects a lot of the powder, it’s not 100%, maybe 95%.

When this happens, you need to scrape and sand the area. A word of caution here, make sure there is no lead paint, there are kits you can buy at the hardware store to test for this, if there is lead I strongly suggest hiring a lead certified painting contractor to at least remove the old paint for you. If you choose to do it yourself, make sure to wear gloves and a mask.
Gloves are important because you can create heat from the friction between the wall and sandpaper, and of course always always wear a mask! If you do a lot of the projects yourself around the house, I would suggest investing in a really high quality mask that allows you to change the filters and sturdy enough to last a long time. You will use this mask for many projects like cleaning with strong chemicals, when you use paints that have odors and chemicals, perhaps you have a very dirty garage or basement, it’s a great way to protect your health when you start sweeping and cleaning, kicking up all kinds of stuff into the air, so it will always be put to good use in one form or another!

When you are done with the sanding, on interior walls you will need to get a clean cloth and dampen it with some fresh water. It’s important to do a nice job wiping down the walls so that you can clean up any sanding powder or residue on the walls. This is tricky because sometimes it looks like there is nothing on the wall, but if you run your gloved hand over it you will see a bunch of powder come off on your glove, you dont’ want this, it will get into the paint and the air causing problems. So, use a clean cloth, make it damp and gently wipe down the walls and make sure there is no powder on your gloved hand when you run it back over to check that it’s all gone. This step is important to prevent any paint problems!

Next is vacuuming, there is a wonderful vacuum called the HEPA vacuum, the initials stand for High-Efficiency Particulate Air filter. If you are in a room with covered furniture, you might need to vacuum the furniture as well. If there is lead paint you are dealing with, vacuum every thing!! Vacum surfaces that were covered. It doesn’t matter, because it’s easy for particles to get under the covering.

After the scraping, sanding and vacuuming are all done, it’s time to put up fresh drop cloths and protect the floor as well with resin paper. Be sure to do research on the type of paint you are using. I have used Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams paints for over 35 years with great success. Be sure to get a high quality primer, and take your time applying a good coat of primer. After the primer has dried completely, be sure to get a high quality finish paint. If you are buying your supplies from a reputable paint store, talk to them, ask a lot of questions, ask what they would use and why. Try to give them as many details as possible. The reason you want to go to a small store is the customer service and help. I love to go to home depot, but sometimes you can feel like you are in no man land! Small paint stores and hardware stores have more hands on experience with customers. They can really help so you don’t run into unkown painting problems!

After scraping and sanding you will need to spot or full prime followed by a high quality paint like Benjamin Moore’s.
