Ways To Not Get Interior Paint on Your Home's Floors & Furniture in Main Line, PA
If you are planning on having Main Line interior painting done, there's some that you should be made aware of. If you don't want to get paint all over your hardwood or carpeted flooring and your furniture, call in a professional painter for help.
When paint goes onto the walls, it also goes onto floors and furniture as it sprays each time a paintbrush slaps a wall. This happens all of the time when those who don't know what they're doing take on an interior panting task.
Before an interior paint job take place, a professional will tell you how to protect things that you value most. You've made quite an investment in your interior, so why jeopardize ruining it?
- All furniture should be moved from project area.
- Drop cloths applied to the floors.
- Pictures and other wall hanging taken down.
- Keep an old towel or cloth around for quick clean up.
Main Line interior painting should take place only by those who are qualified to take on a large interior project. That way they can do all the prep work and also the clean up. These are the two most important aspects of the job.
Paint splatter is very noticeable. Painters tape down the areas they are going to paint in order to avoid spatter. But not just any type of tape is used. Manufacturers make a specialized tape made specifically just for painters.
Paint tape will protect the walls, doors, widows, and baseboards of the interior. This way you won't have to worry about paint splattering all over your interior as the tape will catch it. Professionals will prep your rooms correctly.
Before any painting takes place, professional painters will unscrew the light and outlet switches. Also, any lighting will be removed from the ceiling. Always have someone that knows about electricity remove the lighting.
Hardware should never be painted over. Screws that are already in place should never be painted over although it's easy to do. Instead, they should be highlighted so painters don't accidentally go over them.
If you have hardwood flooring, paint, that's spilled on it, can be cleaned up immediately so there's no chance of solidifying. Carpeting, on the other hand, is a bit more delicate and may need to be professionally cleaned to remove pain stains.
In order to avoid something happening to your flooring, wall hangings, lighting fixtures, and furniture, it is vital that you hire a professional Main Line interior painter. They'll be able to safely complete a job to your satisfaction.
