Working with an interior painting contractor in Tyler, TX can be an exciting time—no more worrying about DIY and all of the mistakes and frustrations that come along with it! However, there are still a number of things you should do to ensure your professional painting experience is smooth and seamless.
It’s been said that preparation is 90 percent of painting, and while our team at Salgado Painting will handle the actual painting prep, there’s actually a few tasks property owners can do ahead of time that will help us hit the ground running and make your job the best that it can possibly be.
Figure out a furniture plan
Our team takes the utmost care and precaution to protect everything inside (and outside) of your home. We use coverings over everything that runs even the slightest risk of getting paint on it, including furniture. That said, we typically recommend that homeowners prepare for our arrival by moving all furniture away from the walls (if it can’t be moved to another room entirely). It’s usually best to group all of this together in the center of the room, furthest away from the surfaces most likely to be painted. This way, it’s easiest to protect all of these items under tarps and other surface coverings. A good interior painting contractor in Tyler, TX will know how to keep your house tidy while getting the job done.
Think about small items
When a surface is to be painted, that means all items that could get in the way or could get paint on them need to be moved. This includes not only furniture, but also smaller items like wall hangings and paintings, or items like pots and pans that are inside of closets to be painted. You can leave the hardware in place (anchors, nails, etc.) for a painting on the wall—crews can usually paint around these. You should also have a place to move all items from inside a closet that needs a coat of paint—these are best placed in another room that won’t be painted, but you can also shift them to the center of the room and we can cover them as we would furniture.
Help the crew help you
When we send our team members to a customer’s home, we know they are going to treat it as if it were their own, with the utmost care and respect. You can help us get the job done quickly and efficiently with some basic steps like designating a restroom for crew use, keeping kids and pets away from the work area and removing any window treatments that you can—all of this helps us get the job done in a safe and timely manner.
When you’re working with an interior painting contractor in Tyler, TX, the minor steps described above can really be a huge help to all parties involved. Our services both before and during the job include helping with the selection of materials and colors, so we consider ourselves a full-service painting company.
