How do I prep a room to apply painter’s tape?

by | Jan 16, 2017 | Best Practices, Paint & Masking, Usage

Room preparation is a key step in the painting process, though it is often overlooked for various reasons.

To ensure that no furniture or other materials are damaged while painting a room, clear away any clutter, electric sockets and light covers, furniture, or anything else that could get in your way while painting. It is also a good idea to make sure you have all the tools for the job prior to starting, as well as to clean and prepare the surface of your walls in advance.

Taking the time to properly prepare a room for painting will prevent several mishaps from occurring, and make the job easier since there are fewer obstacles in a clean room.
