                              How To Prep For Painting

                              Surface Prep For Painting: Remove Cracked or Peeling Paint

                              Begin surface prep for painting by removing any loose, peeling paint with a paint scraper and sandpaper. Sand all edges to smooth the surface and help the new paint adhere. Scrub all surfaces with a mild detergent and a sponge or rag to remove all dirt, grease, oil, etc. Rinse surface well and allow to dry. Spot-priming will help the new paint adhere and give a better finished look.


                              Surface Prep For Painting: Fill Holes and Cracks

                              Small Cracks and Nail Holes - Brush the area clean. Use your finger or a putty knife to fill nail holes or very small cracks with wood filler if you are patching wood. For plaster and drywall use a non-shrinking joint or spackling compound. Using a putty knife, apply a thin skin of filler over the patched area. After patch is dry, sand it smooth. Wipe with a moist cloth to remove dust, then spot-prime to create a uniform surface and help the new paint adhere.
                              Larger Holes and Cracks - For holes and cracks larger than a nail hole, cut two pieces of a self-adhesive mesh joint tape, making sure that the pieces are larger than the hole. Center the two pieces in the shape of an "X" over the hole and press firmly into place. Cracks usually require just a single piece. Then, using a putty knife, cover the mesh with one or more layers of joint compound. When the material is dry, sand smooth and spot-prime.


                              Surface Prep For Painting: Remove Wallpaper

                              Start by using a scoring tool to create holes in the paper. Then use a paste remover or power steamer to re-wet the paste behind the paper. Use a scraper to remove loose wallpaper. After wallpaper is removed, wash the wall with a paste remover to remove any leftover sizing or paste. For any stubborn patches of paste, try a bristle brush or a mesh scrubber. Once the paper and paste are off, prime the bare walls. An oil-based primer is preferred over a latex-based primer because it prevents any remaining paste from bleeding through the finished coat. An oil primer is also the best choice if the wallpaper is on so firmly you can't get it off.


                              Surface Prep For Painting: Smooth Sags, Drips and Runs

                              Sand to smooth any sags, drips or runs. Use a damp, lint-free cloth to remove sanding dust.


                              Surface Prep For Painting: Repair Water and Smoke Damage

                              After the cause of the damage has been corrected, use a primer-sealer designed for stain blocking. Before you begin priming, do a water test on an area of the ceiling that's not damaged. Apply water with a spray bottle. If the water beads, spot-prime the damaged area only. If the water absorbs, you'll want to prime the entire ceiling. Read the product label to make sure the primer is recommended for your type of stain. Stain-blocking primers are available in both alkyd and latex-based versions. While both work to block water and smoke stains, the alkyd stain blocker will usually seal water stains better because it doesn't contain water that could re-wet the stain. You may still see the stain through the stain blocker, but it is designed to "lock-in" the stain to prevent it from bleeding through into the topcoat. Make sure the primer is thoroughly dry before you apply the topcoat.
