How to prepare walls for painting

How to prepare walls for painting

While it can be tempting to get painting as soon as possible when you want to decorate a room, it’s worth taking the time to make sure your room and surfaces are best prepared before you begin. Getting the preparation right is crucial to achieving the perfect finish. It’ll also help to keep things neater and cleaner, and reduce the need for additional coats of paint. No paint can completely cover dirty or uneven surfaces, so tackling this at the start of the project avoids the need for extra work later on.

In this guide we’ll walk you through the most important steps to take, and show you how to;

  • Empty your room ready for decorating, and protect fixtures and fittings you aren't painting
  • Clean your walls to help paint adhere
  • Fill holes and cracks and smooth your walls for the best possible finish
  • Prime stained surfaces or those which have not been painted before

Once you've completed these tasks you should have a smooth, even surface ready to be painted.

Buyer's guide to primers

If you're painting on bare wood, plaster or metal surfaces, you'll get a better result if you use a primer first. It provides a surface which the paint can bond to and stops the paint being absorbed. Find out more what you need and for what surface.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cleans brushes used with solvent-based paint This is essential for cleaning brushes if a solvent-based paint is used. Most modern paints are water-based and do not need cleaning with white spirit but for those that do, you need white spirit or something similar. Always wear protective gloves when using this product and dispose of all waste items, including used white spirit in a sensible way at a refuse recycling point or in your general waste bin. Do not pour this down any drain. After cleaning brushes with this, it is best to wash them in warm, soapy water and then rinse them off well in cold water before drying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'ts white spirit! I use this for cleaning greased-up bike parts & occasionally to soak oil based paint brushes. NB this is not the odourless version, but it evapourates & the smell's gone. It's a dirty job but......it ends up clean.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless - trust me, buy a different brand! Does not work at all. I added my brush into a jar of this so-called 'white spirit', and I kid you not, it did absolutely nothing! The paint remained stuck to the brush. B&Q - test your products before placing on the shop floor for your customers to walk away disappointed. Come on B&Q, sort it out - it's a staple DIY product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Odourless but useless I agree with other reviews. This does not work. It makes me doubt the quality of diall products. I cant believe anyone actually tested it before adding it to the stock list.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from useless Absolutely useless. Hot soapy water does a better job. Total waste of money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubbish! When you soak brushes in it has no effect, it's similar to water
