›› Du­lux tech­ni­cal ser­vices spe­cial­ist Andy Palmer sug­gests: ›› Good prepa­ra­tion: Clean walls with Sugar Soap to re­move any resid­ual sur­face con­tam­i­na­tion. ›› Get rid of old paint: When sand­ing, the aim is not to re­move all pre­vi­ous coat­ings but to scuff the sur­face enough to pro­vide a sound base. ›› Re­move hard­ware: It it best to re­move door han­dles, locks, hooks, etc. if you can’t re­move items, use the painter’s blue tape to cover them. ›› Brushes: Get good qual­ity brushes that will hold more paint.
