Hiring Professional Painters Before Moving Into Your New Home

Apr 13, 2024 | Painting Contractor

Hiring Professional Painters: When relocating to a major city, you should hire the best in the business. First, you need a high-quality moving company with the best quotes and top-tier experts. Next, you need an experienced realtor to go over potential homes. You will also need some decent full-storage units to keep your items temporarily.

Of course, a lot of people don’t consider the option of hiring professional painters to go over their new home. After all, it’s an additional expense, and moving is already incredibly pricey. Furthermore, some people paint their homes themselves, but hiring experts comes with benefits. In this article, you will learn about the benefits of hiring professionals to paint your new home before moving in.

Reasons to Hire a Professional Painter Pre-Move

Avoiding a Mess

Painting can be a messy process, even with the best tools. You may accidentally splatter paint on your floor, furniture, and other belongings. Moreover, it can be difficult to clean up depending on the type of paint you are using.

There are certain steps you can take to keep your DIY painting mess-free. However, a team of expert painters will do a better, cleaner job than anyone who tries to paint by themselves for the first time.

Saving Time

Here’s a simple question: what kind of room is easier and quicker to paint a room with all the furniture, boxes, and ladders strewn about the floor or a room with next to nothing in it?

Your new home will likely be empty when you move in, as is protocol with house or apartment sales. So, instead of painting the place yourself with all your stuff, hire professionals a few weeks before you move in. Not only will they get the job done faster than you in general, but they’ll be even more thorough if there’s nothing in their way. But don’t do it immediately after the move, as the items will be obstacles to them. They’ll still get the job done, but it might take a while; plus, they could charge you extra. Furthermore, the fumes from the paint take a while to dissipate, so it’s a good idea to get the painting done before you move in. 

Adding Color to Your New Home

It is common for the previous homeowner to repaint the walls with neutral colors, such as white or pale beige, before leaving the house to give the new residents a fresh start. However, this can make the home look dull and sterile, which is not a welcoming sight when you enter your new home for the first time.

Alternatively, you might find the new home’s fresh coat of paint or decorations unappealing. You might decorate rooms using patterns such as wallpaper, polka dots, stripes, and more. Some parents also let their children paint their rooms, which is fine and even adorable, but it’s not advisable if you plan on using the former kids’ room for something else.

With that in mind, you can hire painters to review the walls before the move. That way, you’ll be welcomed by freshly decorated walls that suit your needs perfectly and are pleasing to the eye. 

Helping with the Decor

Feeding into the last point, it’s always a good idea to have a freshly painted home waiting for you so you can make design decisions in advance. Color-coding each room can be challenging without coating the walls in your preferred hues.

Choosing a Paint Color

Safety First

DIY wall painting can be challenging, and often, homeowners make numerous mistakes. Sometimes, those mistakes can be minor, such as using the wrong shades of paint or spilling a bucket onto the carpet. However, ‌these mistakes can lead to significant injuries.

While painting, you risk experiencing one of the following situations:

  • Falling off a scaffolding
  • Falling off a ladder 
  • Tripping on a bucket of paint
  • Inhaling toxic fumes due to poor equipment
  • Tipping something fragile over with an extension pole.

These risks are much higher for inexperienced individuals compared to experts. A professional painter will know how to set everything up and move about without tripping or knocking anything over. So, for your safety and the safety of your belongings, it’s best to hire someone who knows what they’re doing. 

Stress-Free Moving when Hiring Professional Painters

Moving is already incredibly stressful. You have to manage numerous tasks, including scheduling meetings, financing the move, cleaning the home, packing, selling, giving away unneeded items, contacting realtors and sellers, and preparing your old home for the new owner. It puts a lot of pressure on an individual, so having to paint the home on top of everything can be draining.

With professional painters, you can avoid additional stress. Simply focus on other details and let the experts do their job the best way they know how.

Professional Job Done Right

Last but not least, you know that you’ll get an excellent job with professionals at the helm. First, they will use cutting-edge equipment, the best paint, and the latest techniques when applying it. In addition, their prep work is impeccable; they will prepare everything for painting quickly and more professionally than any DIY-savvy homeowner could.

Of course, there is also a quality guarantee and insurance if something goes wrong. Nearly all painting companies worth their salt offer their customers satisfaction programs. That way, even if they mess something up, you will receive compensation for any damages. The quality guarantee is there to show you the company’s track record. Your home is in good hands if the paint contractor’s online reviews are overwhelmingly positive.
