If you have decided to trust professionals to paint the interior of your home, you’ve decided to trust someone to treat your home with the care and respect it deserves. While it is best to move the most precious of your belongings away from the commotion, sometimes it’s just not practical. Plus, it’s impossible to move floors and other surfaces.
So how do you know you can get a beautiful paint job while protecting your belongings from paint drips on the floor or paint dust from a sprayer on surrounding surfaces? Find a skilled painter that can minimize risk and mess. To get you started in the right direction, we have a few key tips for you to keep in mind.
How do you protect your home during an interior painting project?
1. Ask for references
Would you allow someone to babysit your child without references? Do you eat at a restaurant before you read the reviews? If not, you can take the same type of care when choosing people that will be working in your home. A reputable painter should be able to provide you with references from past clients who can speak to their level of professionalism and attention to detail.
2. Request a written proposal
A written proposal should outline the work to be done, as well as any precautions the painter will take to protect your belongings. Be sure to review the proposal carefully and ask any questions you may have before hiring the painter before you sign.
3. Discuss the use of drop cloths and plastic sheeting
An excellent painter will use plastic sheeting, drop cloths, and painter’s tape to protect your floors and furniture from paint splatter. Ask the painter how they use these materials and how they will ensure that they stay in place throughout the job.
4. Ask yourself what value you put on your peace of mind
Everyone wants a bargain, but a more expensive painter may offer a higher level of professionalism and attention to detail. It may be worth it to pay a little more to ensure that your precious belongings are protected and the job is done well. Some of your things can never be replaced if they are damaged.
