How to clean and repair walls before painting?

To clean and repair walls before painting, follow these steps:

  1. Clean the walls: Remove any cobwebs and dust, then wash the walls with a mixture of mild detergent and warm water. Rinse with clean water and allow to dry.
  2. Repair cracks and holes: Fill any cracks or holes with spackling paste, sand smooth and prime before painting.
  3. Sand the walls: Lightly sand the walls to help the paint adhere better.
  4. Prime the walls: Apply a coat of primer to the walls to help the paint adhere and provide a uniform base for the final coat of paint.
  5. Paint the walls: Apply the final coat of paint, following the manufacturer’s instructions for application and drying time.

Note: It’s also important to make sure the room is well-ventilated, and to cover floors and furniture with drop cloths to protect them from splatters and drips.
