When you set out to do something like paint your house, you are probably going to end up with quite a bit of a mess. While the mess has to be made, the actual inconvenience of it only really shows if you do not know what you are doing, or if you have not properly planned for the painting happening. This is why, in this article, we will talk about some of the major ways that you can reduce the work you do when you take up a painting DIY job, mostly through managing the messiness and being properly prepared. So here is a quick guide for exterior painters.
So the first way to plan things out and not have a mess made is to calculate just how much paint you need. Having extra paint around only really takes up more space. If more than one person is working on the project, then with unnecessary paint cans, you will simply end up with an extra amount of half used paint cans. The best way to only use how much you need is to measure the surface that needs to be covered and then multiply the amount of paint needed for that surface by the amount of coats you intend to put on it.
The next thing you will want to do is to streamline the painting and cleaning process. You can clean up messes as you make them instead of waiting to start the cleaning process at the end of the painting process. When the paint dries off, it becomes a lot harder to clean it up but with wet paint it is a lot easier to clean things up as you go. Keep a bucket of water and a mop or wiping cloth with you while you are painting.
