Sanding Walls Before Painting Them - Paintway

Sanding before painting walls👨‍🎨⁣⁣⁣⁣🔸Not much sanding is typically needed unless you have dings, nail pops, or a hole. If you do, you’ll need to do some patching and then sanding prior to painting.

⁣⁣⁣⁣🔹You might want to do a light sand with fine abrasives to remove any small imperfections and to ensure better paint adhesion.

⁣⁣⁣⁣🔸If you do a light sand, choose an abrasive sheet that attaches easily to a hand or pole sander. If you’re spot-sanding dry mud or patching compounds, consider an abrasives sponge that resists loading. And be sure to tack off any sanding dust using a tack cloth.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
