Remove Contents of Room Before Painters Arrive
If you are having a room painted you want to be sure that the area is cleared out so that the painter has the space to get to all the walls without anything in the way. You want to remove furniture from the room all together or at least to the center of the room so that it can be covered before the painting begins. You can also remove all the items that are hung on the wall like pictures, shelves and outlets covers. That will clear the room so that all the walls are completely exposed and open for the painting to begin.
Which Items Should be Covered Before Painting a Room?
If you happen to leave pieces of furniture in the room because it is too hard to move it out you want to be sure that all the pieces are covered completely. There is going to be overspray that will get on all the surfaces that are not covered. The painter will bring their own tarps and drop clothes to protect areas such as carpeting and other rooms that are adjacent to the room they are going to be working in.
Repair Drywall Before Painting
If you have any areas of drywall that are damaged in any way including small holes from hanging pictures have them repaired. This will ensure that the paint will go on smoothly and leave the room looking good as new and ready to be decorated how you please.
