How to prepare a wall for painting

How to prepare a wall 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.

Primer buying guide

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 Doe what it says on the bottle! I'm giving this full marks, because it works exactly as the bottle says it does. HOWEVER, a builder friend suggested spraying warm soapy water on the woodchip would work exactly the same as Solvite. So as I came near to the end of my bottle of Solvite, I tried it, compared the two side by side - and fairy liquid with warm water worked much better. Yes this works, but fairy liquid and warm water in a spray bottle works perfectly well too, and cleans the plaster for you, meaning less work with sugar soap afterwards... and that was on a wood chip covered ceiling with 118 year old plaster behind it! Theres also the added bonus that you don't have to wait 15 minutes for the fairy liquid to work, whereas you do with this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easier than a steamer I was sceptical but this was amazing. Took the vinyl coating off by hand and then sprayer this on. Left it 10 minutes and it came off so easily I didn't need to scrape. Will use next time for definite

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a gr8 timesaver I bought this yesterday after spending way too long using an additive to water to soak the walls without good effect as the paper was particularly stubborn. This product made short work of 30yr old wallpaper which had liner & had been painted in places with a further layer of paper & border on top which had also been painted. My advice is to score as much of the area as possible, allow to soak, it will be evident where you have sprayed it as its slightly yellow but more so you can see by the scoring where its penetrated. Made a huge difference & was very effective, did an area in 20 mins which had taken me 2 1/2 hrs before!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best purchase for removing backing paper! We've previously been unsuccessful using a wallpaper steamer and didn't want the mess of applying liquid with a sponge. This spray is perfect for small or big areas, it doesn't drip down your arms and although it says wait 10 minutes before removing the paper, I didn't need to wait that long. I've bought about 6 bottles of this stuff to do our hall, stairs and landing, and it's been a complete godsend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A god send I had to challenge the review I just read as I was checking to see if I could pick up another bottle of this stuff. I've just spent the last 4 days removing wall paper with a steamer. I found the steamer excellent on the walls but absolutely useless on the ceiling. Steamer is long and thin so possibly only designed for wall use (I borrowed it from a friend). Anyway this stuff is working a treat and quite honestly saving me loads of time. I've just removed a quantity of wall paper from my ceiling that took me 3-4 hours to do using steamer. Admittedly I applied loads (used up a whole bottle on 6-7m2 ) hence the 4 as opposed to 5 stars. I'm so happy to have found something that works quickly i just dont care!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Adequate but not as good as a steamer This works okay, but does require quite a bit of work. The paper needs to be suitably scrubbed with a wire brush. It then takes a while to penetrate. I occasionally needed to squirt several times. A bottle this size doesn't cover a lot of wall area. For the number of bottles I would have needed just for a small room, I worked out a steamer would be better value for money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average Tried this in an attempt to strip out difficult area as steamer could not access. Had to wire brush old paper carefully before any success.
