  • Consider lighting. For example, during the morning hours when the sun’s earliest rays light up the walls, the paint might look brighter than in the evening. Natural light can also make the paint look like it is a different color than artificial light.
  • The best way to figure out what the paint will look like is by painting a moveable and repositionable surface. The paint that you use for this test should be the same paint you want your professional painters to use.

Next, if our professional painters are painting any rooms in the interior of your home, move any valuables out of that room before we visit. Our professional painters always take great care not to damage anything while we are at your house, but accidents can happen, so it is better to err on the side of caution.

Remove any pictures or photos that are hanging up and put them somewhere safe. You should also remove any drapes or window treatments as well. Again, if you need help with this, let us know and we will most definitely assist you. Also, remove any electronic devices and store them somewhere else so they are not inadvertently damaged.

It is also important that furniture is moved out of the rooms we will be painting in. They can also be move to the center of the room if that’s easier, and we can cover them with drop cloths so we don’t get any paint on them. Our professional painters can handle all this for you as well as put down protective coverings to ensure your home’s interior is not damaged by paint.

If you have any pets or small children, it is important they are kept away from the rooms our professional painters are painting in. This ensures their safety and also ensures that our visit to your home goes smoothly. We also want to ensure that no pet hair ends up in the wet paint.
