How to Prepare for Professional Hallway Painting ServicesThe hallways of your home are often overlooked, but adding a fresh coat of paint can transform these narrow yet essential spaces into works of art. We always recommend going for professional hallway painting services over DIY, and below, we’ll go over a few of the things you can do to help ensure your hallways are ready when the painters arrive.

  1. Clear the Way: Before the hallway painting can commence, you’ll need to make sure everything is out of the way so that your painters have a clear space to work in. Remove anything hanging on the walls and clear away items like furniture so nothing gets damaged and the painters have a safe space to work in.
  2. Inspect for Damage: Your painters will have a keen eye for damaged surfaces that need extra attention, but it never hurts to take a look yourself and take whatever steps you’re comfortable with to repair dents, cracks, and other flaws before they arrive.
  3. Tidy Up: Like any other room in your home, effective hallway painting starts with a clean, smooth surface. Take a few minutes to wipe down the surfaces and remove dirt and dust, which can interfere with the paint’s ability to adhere to your surfaces.
  4. Double-Check Protective Measures: Your painters should arrive prepared to put down all the necessary layers to protect your trim and flooring, but it never hurts to confirm before they arrive. Ask about things like painter’s tarps and tape and what their policy is for ensuring your home is protected from spills and spatter.
