Tips For Painting The Inside Of Your Home Guilford Ct

Painting the inside of your home can give a tremendous boos to the beauty of your home and making everything look fresh and new! You can hire a professional or do it yourself!   If you choose to do it yourself then you have found the right article!  Your Home “Tips For Painting The Inside Of Guilford Ct” is designed to give you a few simple steps to help secure the best outcome and a high quality paint job!

Here are the steps:

1. Examine the wall closely and see if you need to patch any areas, after patching be sure to fill any hole, crack or dent.  After this, will need to sand the walls lightly to smooth out any imperfections.  This is the worst part of the job, but also the most important!

2. Lightly dust off the walls with a soft cloth and make sure the walls are clean of all dust.

3. Be sure to protect the floor area with a drop cloth

Next, you apply a coat of primer to the wall.  There are good reasons to use a primer, for one, it helps to prevent bleed through’s if you are painting over a dark toned color.  Priming also helps the finish coat of paint to adhere better and it can be helpful if you only want to apply one finish coat of paint instead of two (if you are painting over a deep toned color, you might still need more then one coat of finish paint even if you prime)

Quick note:  If you don’t want to reach to far or use a ladder, consider purchasing an extentsion pole that you can attach to your roller to help reach in the higher places.   You might also want to consider using a no VOC paint!  This eliminates inhaling harmful chemicals and paint odors! There are alot of high quality no VOC paints out there.

Use a paint grid to place in your bucket, fill the bucket halfway up the bucket.  Gently put your roller in the bucket and roll it a few times on the grid to remove any excess paint. To much on the roller can wreak havoc smoothing it on the wall not to mention causing lots of drips!

If you don’t finish in one day, just wrap your brushes and rollers in plastic tightly, put it a big zip lock baggie and put in the fride!  It keeps the paint fresh and moist. The next day take the stuff out of the fridge thirty to forty five minutes before you want to use them and you are good to go!  Same goes for the bucket of paint, you can just put a lid on the plastic bucket  and store the unused paint in there for the next day!

After you are done painting, just rinse out your equipment with warm water and they are ready  to go for the next paint job!  If you have any questions, please feel free to call or email me, I am happy to give out professional advice!  Of course we are happy to come out and give you a free professional estimate / evaluation of your work!
