Q: What wall prep needs to be done prior to painting?
Can a professional walk me through the proper wall prep that should occur before painting. I suspect wall prep is something DIY painters routinely mess up. I'd be very interested in learning how to do it properly. Thank you in advance for your help.
A: Wall Prep
There can be a lot of factors involved. What most do DIYs do not realize is that prep is a huge part of a successful paint job.
Every wall should be clean, free of debris and imperfections. There are various products and methods a professional uses.
On an average wall we would wash, sand lightly, fill any nail holes with spackle, repair any holes and caulk the baseboard.
