Removing Chipped Paint, Sanding A Wall And Eliminating Dust And Stains
Vinyl drop cloths need to be laid across a floor to collect paint chips. The tip of a paint chipper can be moved over loose sections of paint to remove them from a wall. If a wall’s surface is not smooth, moving a power sander back and forth over uneven surfaces will be necessary. Sanding dust and stains that are on a wall can be eliminated by wiping a soapy sponge back and forth over them. A sponge that has been dampened with water needs to be moved over soapy residue to remove it. A wall needs to dry thoroughly.
Applying A Couple Coats Of Latex Paint
Before repainting a wall, pieces of painter’s tape should be secured over hardware, light fixtures and molding. Paint needs to be stirred if there are air bubbles in it. Paint can be poured into a shallow tray. A paint roller that has been evenly coated with paint should be moved across a wall in lines. More paint needs to be added to a roller as a wall is covered. After the first coat of paint has dried, a second coat can be applied over it. After the paint has had plenty of time to dry, a tape can be removed from items that are on a wall.
