Once you’ve decided on interior painting services, there are some helpful steps that prepare your home for professional painters. As homeowners know, moving things around is often an intimidating notion. When we get our space laid out exactly how we want it, moving items is the last thing we want to do. But, when it comes time for a fresh coat of paint, it’s one of the many things homeowners do that makes the painting job easier.
Van Tuinen Painting wants homeowners to know that they can prepare their space stress free knowing that the painting job they end up with will be worth the effort. We care about always providing the best painting experience for customers. That’s why you’ll always know what we need from you in terms of space preparation. Some of the best ways to prepare include:
1. Moving furniture
From lightweight coffee tables to large sofas, furniture is one of the bigger things to move in preparation. Depending on the storage space you have available and the size of the room, you may even simply move the furniture to the center of the room so it is out of the way. And, if you need help with this, our painters will help move furniture into the middle of the room and give it the appropriate coverings. We recommend moving furniture into basements, garages, or even storage units if necessary.
2. Wall decorations
Homeowners should protect clocks, portraits, art, and more before painting starts. It is much easier to paint under decorations than around. Plus, it ensures that no paint accidentally gets on any of them in the home painting process. We want your favorite things protected. So, it saves us a lot of time when they are safely stored while we work. We even recommend bubble wrapping them for an extra layer of protection while they sit in storage!
3. Keep pets clear
Whether you need to put up a gate or shut them in a different room while painting is done, keeping pets clear of the space is a great help. As much as we love our furry friends, we don’t want to have them accidentally step in or get paint in their fur. Keeping pets comfortably out of the area helps our team to quickly get your painting done. By doing this, you get a great new look for your home without having to worry about cleaning up your pet from a paint accident!
Anything that you can clear to make for a clean, blank surface for our team is helpful. We never want you to stress about how to prepare your home for professional painters. So, follow our simple instructions here or the ones you receive when you schedule with us. Then, you’ll be on your way to a freshly-painted home!
