Interior Painting in Arlington:  the Prep Work

Prep work is vitally important for a beautiful interior painting job, and spackling is part of the process.  Unfortunately, when sanding the spackle without a vacuum attachment, the spackle dust carries. 

It is astonishing how few interior painting contractors own a vacuum attachment.  Spackle dust is very light and can carry throughout a house, even into closets.

We avoid this problem by sanding with vacuum attachments on our sanders, and it collects 95% of the dust before it has a chance to land where no one wants it. Arlington
