As you may know, proper preparation is vital in any building project. As such, high quality paintwork also requires proper surface preparation.
This generally means thorough cleaning of all surfaces to be painted and applying appropriate primer undercoat. Following this correct sequence of painting preparation is essential for delivering the best painting results.
Our House Painting Preparations
Advanced Painting understand that your home if full of your most valuable items. From appliances to furniture, paintings, ornaments, art, even carpet can be expensive.
That's why before we start any cleaning, sanding, filling or any other preparations for painting, we cover floors and furnishings with protective sheeting.
Once your items are protected, then we begin preparing all surfaces to paint as follows:
- Minor dents and gaps in walls are repaired
- Ceilings and walls are dusted and cleaned, either with high pressure water or solvents like sugar soap
- Surfaces are sanded where necessary, to give a smoother finish in the end result
- We also perform mould treatment where required
Internal House Painting Prep
Most internal walls are gyprock plaster. When houses are first built, this gyprock must be given the right primer, otherwise the paint will soak into the wall.
When home interiors are repainted the walls must be thoroughly cleaned. If this is not done correctly, accumulated oil, grease and dirt compromise the appearance of the finished paint.
Occasionally there is damage to the wall that also requires repair. Our painters have attention to detail and by ensuring we do this too, you gain a pristine paint job.
Cleaning walls with sugar soap and making minor repairs means a home interior can be given a paint job that makes if look new again.
By using the right primer on gyprock, and appropriate primers on metal, wood or other surfaces, we also ensure we deliver the best paint job possible for your homes interior.
