Indentations Such As Chips, Pin/Nail Holes, Unsightly Mudding From Previous

Drywall Mud Is Applied Over Small Indentations

 

Mud is Allowed Plenty Of Time To Dry Properly 

 

Mud Spots Are Primed Before Painting To Lock In The New Wall Material, And Provide a More Consistent Texture Once Paint is Applied

Apply Drywall Mud

 

 

Newly Applied Drywall Mud Is Sanded Using Drywall Sanders

 

Mud Spots Are Sanded Flush With Drywall And Become Unnoticeable After Paint Is Applied

 

Drywall Sanders Are Attached Directly To ShopVacs To Minimize Dust

 

Mud Spots Are Primed Before Paint Is Applied To Lock In New Drywall Material And Provide A Constistent Texture With The Rest Of The Wall

Sand Drywall Mud

 

 

Before Applying Paint, All Wall Surfaces Wiped Clean Of Dust, And The Area Is Cleared Out And Cleaned To Prevent Ambient Dust From Collecting In The New Paint.

 

An Organic, Rinse Free Solution Is Mixed In The Rinse Water To Help Scrub

Away Any Dirty Or Grease From The Walls That The Sander Missed.

 

Cleaning The Walls Before Painting Allows For A Smoother Finish And Allows The 

Paint To Adhere Its Best To The Wall.
