Prepping Your Surface
Before you grab for a paint brush or open a can of paint, you should first start by prepping your surface. Many walls and ceilings throughout homes can become dirtied over time by collecting dust, grime, and sometimes grease. These substances can play a major role in your paint’s level of adhesiveness, and will produce lackluster results if not properly addressed beforehand. For this reason, you should consider cleaning your walls with soapy water, fill any holes in your walls with spackle, and remove any outlet covers that may still be attached to your walls. Once you have cleaned your walls with water, you will be required to allow them to dry overnight before beginning your interior painting project.
Using Extension Poles
Instead of painting your home’s ceilings with a small paint brush, consider using an extension pole for all those hard to reach areas. Not only do extension poles allow you to extend your paint roller’s reach, they also help to cover larger areas so that you don’t have to spend an unnecessary amount of time using a paint brush. Extension poles also eliminate the need for a step ladder, so you won’t have to worry about an injury occurring while painting your home’s interior. Saving time and reducing risk are just two of the many benefits that extension poles can provide when it comes time to carry out your next painting project.
These are just a few simple ways that you can make interior painting as easy as possible, so that you can spend less time worrying about the quality of your paint job and more time enjoying your newly renovated home.
