A painting contractors know that mistakes will always happen. It’s inevitable; you will dribble a splotch of paint, or get residual spray from the roller. The best way to deal with these unavoidable mishaps is to minimize the mess by establishing a clean and prepared environment in the beginning. Purchase drop cloths allowing them to be big enough to cover a large area. Many painting contractors choose canvas style drop cloths because of their usability, and durability.

Canvas is preferred over plastic drop cloths.

If you have ever used plastic drop cloths and spilled paint on it, convincing you to buy canvas would be easy. Plastic drop cloths can be messy and drag your spill mistakes everywhere. Plastic drop cloths are less expensive, so if you decide to save money by purchasing plastic drop cloths, be certain to tape them down tight.

Using tape will improve the overall quality of the paint job.

Paint rollers are going to want to touch the ceilings and walls where they shouldn’t, and cutting in with a brush doesn’t mean you will always have a steady hand. To prevent more paint ‘oops’, taping off the windows, edges, and ceilings will allow you to work (and breathe) easier while painting.

Removing face plates and locks is strongly recommended.

Before you begin application, go through the room looking for potential problems. Face plates should be removed, or they will end up fashioned the same color as your wall. The same goes with light fixtures, or even door handles. Furniture should be covered or removed (as should kids and pets, unless they are of course’ helpers’). Stand back and take stock of the room to see if it is ready for painting.

Avoid tracking paint with your shoes.

Painting contractors know that when they have a spill or drip of paint on drop cloths to clean it up immediately. It keeps them from tracking paint into other areas of your home that are unprotected. This advise will save you time cleaning up other areas of your homes flooring.

If your paint misses the drop cloth, then clean the spot immediately. 

When the paint hits the floor or carpet…immediately use a wet sponge to blot the spot. Paint that has a solvent thinner base requires thinner. Use an old rag and thinner to gently blot the paint. If the paint has a chance to dry before you can clean it up, it will require a product called ‘Goof off’, a clean white cloth and some elbow grease on bare floors to dissolve and remove the paint. On carpet, it will be more difficult depending on the kind of carpet and type of paint used. It is in your best interest to attack that splotch as soon as it hits the floor.

If you are using a latex paint, clean up will be easier and more successful than an oil based. Be sure to invest in a sharp edge razor scraper, this tool is a big help in removing paint from windows and edges. Woodwork can be rid of paint spots using Goof Off and by simply covering the scraper with a thin cloth and gently going over the area. And…be sure to wear a hat. You do want to assume the look of professional painting contractor don’t you?
