Preparing your house for painting

Painting can be a painstaking job, which is why APMG Painting in Melbourne does all the hard work for you. Whether you’re thinking about getting the interior walls of your space redone, or painting the outside surfaces of your property, there are a couple of things you need to do beforehand to ensure that you’re prepared.

Find a reliable painting company

It can be a huge weight off your mind to get a professional in to do the painting for you, but before you make your choice, here are a few things to consider:
What do previous customers say about their services? Be sure you research any painters or painting companies reviews and references before you book them.
How long have they been painting for? APMG Painting has 30 years of qualified painting industry experience, so you can be confident that we know what we’re doing.
Are they qualified and fully insured? A reliable painter is a responsible painter. The team at APMG Painting can not only give you a written quote, but make sure your space is treated with the utmost respect. A great painting company will be able to make you feel relaxed and confident that you’ve made the right choice.

Prep your walls before the painters arrive

Now that you’ve chosen your painter, you’ll need to prepare your surfaces. This will ensure that you get the finest end result. Clean your inside walls down with a damp rag, leaving them smooth and free of dust. If you’re having your exterior surfaces painted, make sure they’re free of any dirt, dust or grime. Also, make sure your painter knows of any peeling paint areas. They can help you with advice or add primers to help prevent future peeling.

During the painting process

The best thing you can do for your painter is to clear the painting location so they have full access to the area. Ensure the space is free of obstacles and cover anything you can’t move. If you’re having your interior walls painted, open a window so the fumes don’t build up. Anything else can be taken care of by the painter.
