6 Easy Steps to Paint a Room!

Whether you work with professional painting companies or choose to do it yourself, it’s important to know the six simple steps it takes to paint any room. First, you need to clean the walls to remove dirt, dust, and grease. That way, you have a smooth finish. You might need to use dish-washing detergent and a fluffy sponge. Rinse the walls and remove soap residue before beginning. Next, it’s essential to tape anything that you don’t want to get paint on, such as door frames, windows, and trim. The painting companies tape can be applied to these areas up to a week before the job begins. Just make sure to remove the tape immediately after you paint so that it doesn’t peel off with the tape.

ESP Painting follows these steps and more. The next step is usually to prime the walls. Sometimes, primer isn’t needed, but the professionals here know when to use it and when not to. Therefore, you can rely on their judgment. Primer is used to maximize coverage and sheen of your paint and give a more uniform appearance. Once that’s done, the professionals usually use a paintbrush to get around tight spots and anywhere that a roller can’t go. This includes wall corners, trim, and more.

Painters in Sherwood are taught early on to use the ‘W’ technique when painting. Start in one corner of your wall and roll paint using a three-by-three foot “W” pattern. Fill in space without lifting your roller. Continue using this technique in sections until the wall is painted, only painting one wall at a time. The last step is to paint the trim after the walls are dry. Make sure to use more painter’s tape to keep crisp lines. If this seems like a lot of work, consider requesting an estimate from the professionals and let them handle it for you.
