Take Care to Protect Your Valuable Carpets When Painting In Your Home
It's common knowledge that paint and carpeting don't mix. It's also inevitable that no matter how hard you try to protect your carpeting when painting in your home, you will most certainly end up with a few drips and splatters.
Rolling up wall-to-wall carpeting when you're doing extensive painting is just not possible, but taking care to get Oriental and other area rugs out of harms way is crucial. Rolling up and storing rugs before painting commences is a no-brainer. A few extra moments of preparation will save you from agonizing over a paint splatter on your favourite rug. You know the saying: better safe than sorry.
Talk to your painters before they start work. Make sure they understand that you expect them to be mindful of your carpeting and furniture while they are painting. Make sure they put down heavy duty plastic drop cloths over your carpeting, instead of cloth or other fabric. Paint will seep through fabric and wind up on your carpet.
If you're going the DIY route, take the time necessary to follow the same steps; don't scrimp on protecting your carpets. Talk to professionals at your local hardware store about which type of paint you should be using, and the best drop cloths to use to protect your carpet.
