Bedroom Painting Inspection: What You Should Know In Cincinnati, OH

After you’ve finished with a painting project such as getting your bedroom painted, or having a good painting contractor come to your house to do the work, it’s useful to give the room a good review and make sure everything was done correctly.

It’s useful when you are making this kind of inspection to take in mind certain key aspects of the inspection that will make for a better completed paint job.

Let’s have a look at bedroom painting inspection and what you should know when you’re looking to make for a better painted bedroom.

1. Check the Windows

One area of problem when the bedroom has been painted comes in the form of the bedroom windows, and more specifically making sure that paint has not gotten on the windows.

Ideally, if you have taken care of properly protecting your windows before you started painting, you will not see any paint on the windows — but it’s quite possible that a little paint will have gotten on them regardless.

If this is the case, it will be necessary to clean up the windows as soon as you can so that it is not more difficult to be cleaned later on.

2. Use A Flashlight

Though you might think that you’re going to see everything when you’re reviewing the paintwork in the room just by using the lights in the room, it’s far better to make use of a flashlight to better inspect the walls.

There are all kinds of things that you’re going to need to look out for when you’re inspecting the paintwork including if all of the defects that were previously found were taken care of.

As good as the lighting in your room may be, it will be quite good to make use of a flashlight for the purposes of the inspection.

3. Begin On One Side Of The Room And Go To The Other

Though it may seem a bit obvious, one of the best things that you’re going to be able to do for yourself in terms of inspecting the paintwork in your bedroom is to start in one side of the room and move your way around to the other.

By doing this, you’re going to be able to ensure that you will cover the entire room without missing any parts of it — and this is a good thing.

You will be able to slowly assess the room as you are going from one part of it to the other, assessing each part of it as you get to it.

4. Touch The Walls For Smoothness

If you’re looking to assess one particularly important part of the paintwork that has been done, you should run your hand along the wall to ensure that the paint that has been applied is smooth.

If you recall, a well painted surface is one that starts off by being made to be as smooth as possible and that is not only so that the paint that is applied to it goes on well but that the wall ultimately is smooth after it has been painted.

If you feel bumps on the surface of your wall, it is a sign that a mistake or multiple mistakes were made in the painting process, and the good news is that these are the sorts of mistakes that can be corrected — but it’s better to know about it in advance so that it does not overly complicate the way that you will be correcting the mistakes.

By making the time to feel the wall you will be able to see quite easily what needs to be corrected, if anything.
