What is the Correct Process for an Interior Paint Job? | D&D Painting

If you are anxious to get the interior of your home painted then you may be tempted to grab some paint and a brush and get started. However, you won’t be happy with your results if you do not follow the correct process for painting. There are a few important steps to take before and during your paint project to ensure that it looks as good as possible when everything is finished. Cleaning, prepping the area, and choosing the appropriate tools are all part of the correct process for an interior paint job.


Cleaning your walls, baseboards, and your floor are all important for getting a high-quality finished paint job. Dust and grime can accumulate on your walls. If you paint over dust and grime it can impact how the paint adheres to the surface and leave you with a splotchy finished product. Dirt and dust on your baseboards and floors can get disturbed and end up on your paint brush or in the wet paint on the wall and further impact the look of the finished product. Taking the time to clean your walls and surrounding areas is an important part of the process of painting inside your home.

Prepping the area

Prepping the area around where you want to paint is also an important part of the process. You need to remove items like photos and shelves from your walls, fill holes, and protect surrounding furniture and floors with drop cloths. Taking time to prep will make it easier for you to paint and protect your floors and furniture.

Choosing the correct tools

The correct tools can make all the difference when it comes to painting the interior of your home. You need to make sure that you have the right tools before you start painting to avoiding having to leave and go to the hardware store in the middle of your project. You need a ladder or scaffolding that can reach the tallest areas of your home. Paint brushes, rollers, roller extension poles, paint trays, cleaning supplies, painter’s tape, and paint are tools that are necessary for just about every interior paint project. You may also need additional tools for making repairs, edging, and other detail work. Before you start your project, take the time to make an exhaustive list of the supplies you will need so you can start and finish the job without interruption.

There is a lot of preparation to do if you want to properly paint the interior of your home. Each part of the preparation can have a direct impact on how your finished product looks. It is worth your time to do all of the prep work! If you do not have time for the prep work but still want a top-notch finished product, consider hiring a painting pro. You can leave the entire process up to someone who has the knowledge, training, and tools needed to provide you with a high-quality interior paint job.
