Preparation Process

The Interior Preparation

At Next Door Painting, we follow a step-by-step process for every interior project in order to ensure that surfaces are properly prepared before the start of any painting job as well as to protect any of your valuables and areas of your home that are not being painted.

1. Property Protection

The painting process begins before anything is applied to the walls. All of the heavy room furniture is moved to the center of the room and covered with plastic drapes. The flooring is covered with paint-proof drop cloths. Other valuables are covered or moved out of the way.

2. Preparation Work

Major cracks and holes in ceilings, walls, and trim are filled. If necessary, caulk is applied.

3. Painting

The ready-to-paint walls, ceilings, and trim are painted with high-quality paint to achieve an even paint finish.

4. Clean Up

Tool and equipment is removed. The floors and furniture are uncovered. Floors are swept and vacuumed. The furniture is placed back in its original position.

5. Inspection

Together with the homeowner, the finished job is inspected. You are invited to complete our feedback survey.
