The Checklist for Interior Paint Prep

This checklist will help you prepare for your next Athens interior paint project:

  • Decide on the type of paint you want to use flat, low-gloss, glossy. (Latex-based paint is used for interior painting.)
  • Realize that different parts of your Athens home might need different types of paint.
  • Buy enough paint to cover a room in two thin coats.
  • Keep in mind that a gallon of paint will cover 400 square feet in one coat.
  • Consider your interior wall surfaces.
  • Decide if your project is one that you want to tackle or if calling a your Athens painting contractor would be wise.
  • Take time to remove all items that could get in the painter’s way.
  • Move furniture away from the walls and cover with drop cloths.
  • Vacuum and clean corners and baseboards.
  • Allow your Athens painter easy access to water for cleaning his/her tools.

Keep pets and children away from areas being painted.
