If you plan to have the interior walls of your property painted by a professional painter, you might want to bear the following two tips in mind.
1. Leave your pets with a friend or at a boarding kennel
It is a good idea to make sure that your pets are kept away from the house until the paint that the painters apply to the interior walls has completely dried. There are several reasons why pets should not be present during the interior painting process. Firstly, if they fall asleep in a freshly-painted room that is poorly-ventilated, come into direct contact with a wall that is covered in wet paint or lick an open tub of paint, they may become very ill.
Exposure to paint fumes could irritate their respiratory tract, eyes and skin, whilst ingestion of paint could lead to them experiencing severe gastrointestinal distress. You may then have to take time out of your busy schedule to transport your pet to the vet, and may then incur a large bill if they require treatment.
Secondly, your pets could inadvertently create a dangerous environment for the painters to work in. For example, if you have a large, boisterous dog, they could potentially barge into a room that is being painted and knock over a ladder that one of the painters is standing on. That individual could then be badly injured as a result of falling off the ladder. Given this, if you want this process to go smoothly, you should arrange for your pets to be left with a friend or at a boarding kennel until after the painters have left and the paintwork is dry.
2. Make sure the painters can open the windows
If like many houses, yours features windows that can only be unlocked with a set of keys, you should make sure that you unlock these windows before the painters start working. The reason for this is as follows; if the painters cannot open the windows in the rooms where they will be painting, it will be virtually impossible for them to properly ventilate these work areas.
This could be dangerous for them, as they may end up inhaling excessive amounts of fumes. This could make them extremely ill, so much so that they may have to seek medical treatment. The pungent fumes could also linger for much longer in your house, which could then make your home unpleasant to spend time in for weeks after the paintwork has been finished.
My favourite colour is blue. I have just moved into a new house and it's so bland and beige at the moment. I need to get busy and start painting the walls and hang some wall paper to introduce some of my different colour into the house in different ways. If you also love blue you'll know how flexible and interesting the colour can be in all of it's differents shades and tones. This blog has my inspiration on introducing blue in your walls and all around your home. There is no need to be blue about the lack of blue in your home!
