Professional painters are undoubtedly the best option, but if you are a sensitive person and want your room to paint all by yourself then here are a few techniques we have come up with to help you in painting your favorite corner of your house. 

Techniques of an interior painting by yourself

The below-mentioned steps should help you to paint your home efficiently. 

1. Clean the walls

The first step of interior house painting in Auckland is cleaning the walls of the room. Before applying paint to your walls first the walls of the room have to be cleaned. You can use a vacuum, or if you don’t have a vacuum towel can also be used to clean the walls. If any wallpaper adheres to your wall, remove it before cleaning. Application of anti-mold solution on the areas that have been affected by mold is required. 

2. Removal of old paint

A paint scraper or sandpaper will do the work of removing flaking paint. This step is done to make the surface of the wall smooth and paint-ready. You can either use an electric sander or sandpaper can also be stapled to a sanding block. 

3. Repair the areas that are damaged

Before priming your walls try to find out the flaws on your walls. Flaws like loose patches of plaster or cracks around the doors and windows are the common issues you might observe while inspecting the walls. After removing the old cracked plaster, prepare a fresh plaster and apply it in those areas. Filling the gaps around the doors and windows with a sealant would be a good idea. 

4. Prime your wall

The next step would be priming your wall. Primer covers small imperfections but certain stubborn marks cannot be covered by primer and no matter how much coating you apply on your wall the marks will be visible. If you have such a stubborn stain on your wall, use a stain-blocking primer before coating your wall with paint.

6. Cover your furniture

To avoid paint drips on your furnishings don’t bother to move all the furniture out of the room, cover the furniture with plastic sheets instead. This will be much less tiring than moving the furniture
