How to Paint a Room Properly
So you’re painting your house, huh? Great! But how exactly do you do that?
It’s important to keep in mind that surface preparation, while it seems pointless, is half the job of painting. Skimping on surface preparation can lead to paint bubbling, dripping, running, or not sticking. Spend the time!
Additionally, preparing the room to avoid dripping on the carpet or flooring and cleaning your tools after use can help your interior painting project move from amateur to professional.
Interior Painting Techniques
When it comes to painting your home, you need to do it right.
If you have decided to paint it yourself, then it’s important that you know the proper interior painting techniques so you don’t waste time or end up with a poorly painted room.
Kopeck Painting has the answers for you.
Whether you’re learning to roll paint, cut in from the corners, or paint around the window trim, we can show you how it’s done.

How To Test For Mold Inside Walls
Painting over moldy walls can be more than just a waste of time.
Not only will the stains show through (ruining your new paint job), but moisture will also be trapped under the paint, and the mold will increase, eventually leading to you having to replace the drywall.
That’s way more work than is necessary.
Luckily, you can treat moldy walls before painting to ensure that they are mold-free and ready to hold paint.
Don’t let a little untreated mold ruin your painting project.
When is it Too Cold to Paint Inside?
Summer time is when you do your exterior painting projects. But can you paint inside during the winter? When is it too cold to paint inside?
Painting inside during the winter is great for several reasons:
- winter air is dry
- no time restrictions due to darkness
You need to make sure you ventilate your work area if you’re painting indoors, but winter is a great time to finish up those painting projects you’ve been planning for months!
