Painting a room is always a nice thing to do. It redecorates the room and freshens it up. But even professional painters always manage to make a little mess. Cleaning up after painting is something you will obviously have to do. Here are some advice that may help you:
To help eliminate any unnecessary accidents remove all your painting equipment very carefully from the room right after you have finished painting. Obviously you should wear old clothes and shoes because it is quite hard to remove paint from clothes. If you, by accident, manage to get paint on your decent clothes, it is easier to wash it off when it’s dry, otherwise you might spread it. You should wash the fabric with warm water and scrub it with a small brush.
Paint stains on carpets are also quite tricky. You should try to cut off any blobs on the surface before you start with the carpet cleaning. Use plenty of warm water but blot, do not rub, because this may damage the carpet.
An other important thing you should do as soon, as possible, is to clean all your brushes and rolls thoroughly after every painting job, otherwise you will have to buy new every time.
Always make sure that paint is dry before you remove masking tape from edges of windows and carpet edges. Peel tape of gently, never rip it. Cleaning services share that paint on window glass can be removed with a blade scraper, then wash the glass with a chamois leather.
Last, but not least, if you don’t wear gloves you will, almost certainly, get paint on your hands. That is not a big problem because there are a lot of special hand cleaners on the market that clean paint from skin without irritating it.
Cleaning up isn’t a pleasant job to do, but if you do it right then you won’t find any serious problems with it.
