How to test if paint is oil or latex?

First, scrub a small area with a solution of household detergent and warm water. Rinse well and towel dry. Then soak a cotton ball, Q tip or soft rag in alcohol and rub it back and forth over the cleaned area. If paint comes off, it’s latex. If not, its oil based. In either case, proper prep is key.

Do I need to move everything from the rooms before you paint?

Just move the small items and breakables. Danby Painters will move and protect all of the furniture and fixtures.

When I get different bids from several companies, they are never the same, some high, some low. Why is there such a price difference?

The cost of a job is usually determined by the level of thoroughness, attention to detail, and quality desired. It costs more to properly prepare a surface for painting than to just pressure clean and scrape the surface. The majority of the cost of painting is in the surface preparation and the labor involved in the application of the paint and not the actual cost of the paint itself. As with most other industries, generally you get what you pay for.

How will my personal property be protected from paint?

On interiors, after you have removed your personal items all areas or items, remaining will be covered with clean drop cloths or plastic sheeting. On exteriors: shrubs and surrounding areas are protected so that no evidence of paint or paint peelings remains.
