How To Protect Your Furniture During Interior Painting

Your furniture makes up a part of your home you’re proud of. Covering up furniture and protecting the rest of your home during a painting project is a natural priority to have. After all, even the best painter in the world will have a few drops of paint fall at some point in the painting process.

Here’s what you should expect of a responsible painter to protect your home and belongings.

Step 1: Removing The Furniture

The best way to protect your furniture while painting? Remove it. Not only will you keep it away from possible paint stains, but the painters won’t stumble over obstacles or stretch to paint that patch behind the sofa. Professional painters will remove furniture from the room before painting.

Next, to be sure your furniture remains in top condition when brought back into the newly painted room, you can pull furniture to the center of the room for a couple days or cover it with plastic sheets. Remember, this is only temporary, and the peace of mind is worth it.

Step 2: Protect Flooring (I’m All About This)

Of course I would mention flooring. Professional painters will bring drop cloths to cover the floor around the room. Plastic sheets are cheaper but can be easily punctured or shift under feet.

Step 3: It’s Not Just About Paint…

If you want to protect your home and belongings from more than paint, remember—these projects can generate some dust, too.

A professional painter should also take care to keep a clean workspace (where dust is contained and minimized). The goal of a pro should always be to leave the space as clean as it was when the project started.

A good painter will cover everything in the space so well that you’ll have zero chance of paint or dust making a mess. You can count on Valor Home Services to care for your home as though it were our own.
