What are the best ways to properly prepare walls and surfaces for painting?

Preparing the walls for painting is an important step because without it, you’ll be left with visible defects of the walls showing through the paint. The wall may be prepared as follows: 1. Select the appropriate tools to suit the state of the surface and the type of old coating (different kinds of tools will be needed to remove the facing, old wallpaper or old paint); 2. If you take the wallpaper off, you have to wet it and peel it carefully. If you want to remove old paint, you need to use a drill with an abrasive nozzle and a grinding machine or a hot air gun and a mid-sized spatula. To remove the tiles, you need a perforator with nozzles, a grinding machine and sanding paper of various grains. 3. Get rid of the cracks in the walls. Primer, spackle and reinforcing tape (if necessary) will help you. If you successfully complete all these steps, your wall will be ready for painting, and you can be sure that no defects will be visible after painting.

How does painting with a sprayer differ from using a brush or roller?

Both the sprayer and the roller will do a great job painting the walls. However, there are some differences. When using a sprayer, it is necessary to determine the correct angle and rate of spraying and set the most appropriate distance between the wall and the sprayer itself. The big advantage of a sprayer is that you need one and a half or two times less paint than you would if you used a roller, however a sprayer will paint your wall with thinner layers. At the same time, painting by the roller is carried out mechanically - even a child can handle this type of painting. Also, as noted above, the roller consumes 1.5 to 2 times more raw material than the sprayer, but the layers are thicker when applied with a roller. In terms of price, the sprayer will cost you more than the roller, but you also have to pay attention to the area of work: if you have to paint a few rooms, it is much easier and quicker to do it with a sprayer.

How to paint tiles?

Painting tiles may require some patience but here’s some steps to follow for the best results. 1. Preparation. During preparation, you have to thoroughly wash the lining, rinse the base, remove any crumbs from the tile and the tile-to-tile gaps, degrease the surface, cover other surfaces that don't need to be painted with film, and size the base. 2. Select the brush with which you want to paint the tile. You can choose between a natural bristle brush and a roller. If you’re using a natural bristle brush, you have to start to paint from the corner and apply the paint on the lining with smooth movements. You have to move from right to left or from top to bottom because if you change direction, you can get ugly streaks. When using a roller, it needs to be pressed against the base and moved from top to bottom and vice versa. The movement must be carried out smoothly with an even force on the entire surface. 3. After the paint has dried, one or two varnish coatings should be applied to protect the paint for as long as possible.

What kind of paint do you use to paint exterior surfaces?

It is not easy to choose the paint for exterior surfaces: unlike the paint for the interior, the paint for exterior surfaces will be constantly subjected to such irritants as rain, wind, mud, etc. Also, sometimes to achieve the desired effect, mixing the paint with other additives is necessary. It’s important to pay attention to each of the paint characteristics individually to achieve the desired result: 1. Vapour permeability. This should be quite high because when the vapour has nowhere to go, it condenses and moistens the inner surface of the paint film. To achieve this effect, look for paints with vapour-forming additives. 2. Minimal detachment of the paint from the base. Here the solution is simple: select the paint with the same components as used in the primer. 3. Hiding. You have to pay attention to that too because the better paint covers up, the fewer layers of it you have to apply. 4. Water dispersions. Sometimes this can play a key role in the integrity and safety of your home because, for example, on cement plasters, alkyd and oil paints are not recommended. It should be noted that water-emulsion and water-dispersion paints are the same. 5. Synthetic paints. Such paints include oil, perchlorovinyl, organosilicon, pentaphthalic, and chloro-sulphur based polyethylene. Some of them can even be used at low temperatures. However, Boris Does does not recommend using psychedelic paints in interior painting, as they are quite toxic. Also, before choosing paint, check if it is suitable for the material of your exterior surface.

How to reduce paint odour?

The smell of paint can be unpleasant and harmful to health, it can cause headaches and more serious side effects for health. It is also unpleasant to people around you: the smell of paint is quickly absorbed into the clothes. However, there are several ways to get rid of the unpleasant smell of paint: 1. Coffee. Natural ground coffee grains soak up the smell very well. Simply place the cans with them in the apartment, and they'll absorb the unpleasant aroma (you can also use bags with already ground coffee). 2. Charcoal. Break up the charcoal into pieces, put them in a container and spread over the entire area. The main characteristic of coal is the absorptive properties it possesses. 3. Scented candles. Burning scented candles fill the room very well with aromas you like. 4. Water. It works more slowly than other methods but it is equally effective. All you have to do is put some buckets of water around the area. The only thing to remember is to replace the buckets of water regularly. 5. Lemon. Lemon slices, left all over the room for a few days, perfectly absorb the smell of fresh paint.

How to prepare a ceiling for painting?

Like walls, ceilings also need to be properly prepared for painting. To prepare it for painting, the following steps should be followed: 1. Check the condition of the ceiling. If it’s good, then you can continue to prepare the ceiling for painting. However, if you have a wet and leaky ceiling, then you first have to fix the leak before you start the painting itself. 2. Remove the old cover if your ceiling has that. 3. There are different types of ceilings and each need to be specially prepared: - If you have a concrete floor slab, then the first thing you need to do is clear the surface of lumps or irregularities. Then you have to apply the priming coat of paint to the ceiling carefully, and when the primer dries up, you have to fill the seams and voids, and all possible chips and cracks with putty. - If you have a drywall ceiling, all you have to do is fill the whole surface with putty, grind and apply the priming coat of paint. That way, your ceiling will be ready for paint!
