Two reasons to have painters paint your home interior's ceilings

If you need to have the ceilings in your home painted, you should not paint them yourself but should book painters who specialise in interior painting for this task. Here are two reasons why.

Painting the ceilings of your home interior yourself could be both uncomfortable and messy

Trying to paint your own ceilings yourself is inadvisable, as this process could be both very messy and quite uncomfortable. The reason for this is that you will have gravity working against you as you paint. If, for example, due to your lack of experience, you make the mistake of adding too much paint to your paintbrush or roller when you're on a ladder with your face close to the ceiling, the paint might drip directly onto your face, hair and or even get into your mouth. Similarly, because this task will take a novice painter much longer than it would take a professional painter, you could also end up with an ache in your neck from craning your neck upward whilst on the ladder for long periods so you can see what you're painting.

Additionally, working on a ladder and trying to keep your balance when looking upward, whilst holding your paint tools in one hand and grasping onto the ladder with your other hand, is an art in and of itself. If you have even the mildest of issues with your balance, mobility, or hand strength, painting your own ceilings could put you at risk of falling.

Professional painters won't experience these issues, as they won't make errors that might result in their faces getting splattered with paint and will also be able to work at a fast pace. Furthermore, because of how much time they spend working on ladders, they're experts at staying balanced on them and are very unlikely to take a tumble when on one.

Painting ceilings requires even more effort and skill than painting walls

Another reason to hire some interior painting experts for this task is that painting a ceiling to a high standard requires even more effort and skill than painting a wall. Even the process of prepping a ceiling by cleaning it with, for example, sugar soap, is tricky, simply because it's hard to evenly clean a surface that's above your head.

If you do this yourself and miss some spots when prepping the ceiling, the paint you then apply to it could look patchy. Similarly, because it's very tiring to press a paint roller upward onto a surface above you for extended periods, the chances of you being able to paint the ceiling evenly are quite low. Conversely, professionals who paint home interiors all the time will have built up strength in their arms from painting ceilings on a regular basis, and so will not struggle to maintain the steady hand they need to, when cleaning the ceiling thoroughly and when applying paint to it evenly.
