Common Interior Painting Mistakes and How to Tackle Them
Interior painting is easy to handle as long as you have the right amount of experience for it. Painting can go smoothly, and you can finish your home’s entire interior in a matter of just a few days, as long as you know how to take care of everything and fix any interior painting mistakes that might come up.
Missed spots are easiest to fix. When you’re tired or just in a hurry, it’s easy to miss a spot here and there. However, you can set up a quick fix for that mistake by having your leftover paint kept in a nearby sealed container. If you notice any spots you’ve missed after completing the work, simply get the container, prepare the paint, and take care of it.
Roller marks can become a real problem if you’re using a cheaper roller. Fortunately, this issue doesn’t need a lot to fix either. Use synthetic short napped roller covers to correct the problem without delay. It’s also a good idea to remove remaining lint using a piece of painter’s tape, before applying the roller cover.
If you use too much paint or you have a long-napped roller, then it’s easy to experience unwanted paint runs. Fortunately, even this problem can be addressed quite easily with the help of fine sandpaper, a small brush and a bit of leftover paint. Just remove the sandpaper to remove the paint runs when the paint dries, then use the brush to retouch the area.
