HandyPro Columbus Handyman Offers Interior Painting Tips to Help New Homeowners
Advance preparation is the key to satisfactory results when applying new paint
The Columbus handyman enjoys sharing home improvement tips to help new home buyers and DIY enthusiasts. Of course, he is also happy to send his painting contractors out to handle the job and often does once the homeowners realizes how labor intensive this job can be.
Applying the paint is the easy part, and taking the time to properly prepare the room is what makes the job easier. Though many first-time homeowners have never painted a room before, the tips posted on the Columbus handyman will help the job go smoothly and allow satisfactory results.
The HandyPro (http://handymanservicescolumbus.com) handyman suggests the following steps in preparing the room for painting:
Remove furniture or move it to the center of the room, and then cover with drop cloths
Tape around moldings, doors and windows using removable safety masking tape specially made for painting
Remove any heating and cooling air vents and cover plates from electrical outlets and light switches
Sand or scrape loose and flaky paint with light sandpaper or a paint scraper
Fill all nail and screw holes from pictures with a putty knife and spackling compound.
If the walls and ceiling of the room are dirty, wash them with trisodium phosphate (TSP) prior to painting. Allow walls to dry completely prior to painting
Spread a canvas drop cloth over the floor to keep paint drips and spills from ruining your carpet
Once the preparation is done, the fun work begins. The handyman says it is best to start with the trim around doors and windows, then paint the corners of walls and ceilings. Paint the ceiling next, then do the walls. Even if the paint can indicates one-coat coverage, the handyman suggests applying two coats for excellent coverage and lasting durability.
