– Sand Away Flaws – A Greeley House Painter Secret
To get a truly great home paint job you really need to start with a perfectly smooth surface for everything from walls to woodwork. You could look at the perfect Painter job title as Sander in many respects, since the Pro Painter spends so much time in surface prep and pushing sandpaper. Sanding your painting surface includes leveling out spackle, joint-compound patches and flattening ridges around nail holes. Proper sanding removes all burrs and rough spots in your trim, for the perfect paint job.
Sand the walls from the baseboard to the ceiling with fine grit sanding paper on a sanding pole. Then sand horizontally along the baseboard and ceiling. Don’t put a lot of pressure on the sanding pole or the head can flip over and damage the wall. Sand woodwork with a sanding sponge to get into crevices.
Put the time into the prep work, and the time spent on the actual painting of your house will be shortened and much more enjoyable. Every time you attack one of those surface imperfections, you are actually perfecting the final product which is the professional painting of your house, home or business.
