Steps to Prepare a Room Before the Painters Arrive

Preparing a room before the painters arrive is essential to ensure quality work and avoid complications. Follow these steps:

1. Clear the Room

  • Furniture and Items: Remove all furniture and items from the room. If some are too heavy, place them in the center and we will cover them with plastic.

  • Wall Decorations: Remove all frames, mirrors, and other wall decorations. Leave nails or screws where you plan to rehang items. If a hole is empty, we will fill it with plaster.

2. Protect Surfaces

  • Floors: Clear the floor as we will cover it with cardboard or drop cloths.

  • Switch Plates: Remove switch plates.

3. Clean Surfaces

  • Dust and Dirt: Clean the walls, ceilings, and other surfaces to be painted with a damp cloth to remove dust and dirt.

  • Grease and Stains: Use a degreaser on greasy areas, especially in the kitchen.

4. Clear Access

  • Doors and Windows: Ensure all doors and windows open and close properly.

  • Workspace: Provide a workspace for the painters to store their materials.

5. Ventilation and Room Conditions

  • Airflow: Ensure the room is well-ventilated for good air circulation during and after painting.

  • Temperature and Humidity: Use air conditioning or heating to keep the room between 20 and 22 degrees Celsius. Lower the humidity to prevent paint from bubbling.

6. Inform the Painters

  • Specific Instructions: Communicate any specific instructions or preferences to the painters before they start.

By following these steps, you'll help ensure a smooth painting process and a flawless final result. For more tips or to hire our services, feel free to contact us.
