Here at Catchlight, we pride ourselves on the abundance of care that goes into painting your home. Our talented team goes above and beyond to ensure we work in a clean, safe, and productive environment, paying the utmost respect to our surroundings. We are extremely grateful to our clients who make sure the workspaces are prepared for our team. Here are just a few things that you can do to properly prep your home or space for painting.  


Remove the items from the wall: It may seem silly, but this little step goes a long way. Make sure any hanging artwork, mirrors, TV, etc., are removed from the wall and stored. 

Make sure the space is clutter-free: The less mess, the better! Catchlight moves any large furniture to the center of the room, but anything on tables, shelves, and small-scale items should be stored away either within the larger furniture or in another space. 


Make sure there is a clear perimeter around the home: Again, Catchlight moves large-scale items, but a good way to prepare the exterior of your home is to store away anything easily removable that might interfere with our work. 

At Catchlight, we go beyond just painting. We also offer handyman and light carpentry services, meaning we can typically handle necessary repairs to your home prior to painting. We also ensure both interior and exterior surfaces are squeaky clean before the painting begins, so you don’t have to worry about wiping down your interior walls or pressure washing your exterior! 

These suggestions for how to prepare are a helpful guide, but the extent of preparation is dependent on the scope of work. The biggest takeaway is that while we provide an unparalleled level of care, it’s always beneficial to make sure your home, both interior and exterior, are as easily accessible to our team as possible. 

Make sure you consult with our team, or whomever your painters are, for the best way to prepare your home for your specific project!
