How to Prepare the Surface for the Paint Zoom

by Richard

As with any kind of paint job, you will need to prepare the surface you are going to use the Paint Zoom on. This means that you will have to ensure that the surface is free of dust and dirt, and has a clean surface that will ensure a good bond with whatever material you are using.

In order to do this, you are going to need to wipe down the surface you are painting with a dry cloth to get rid of any dust that might be there. Dust can cause all kinds of problems when you are painting; everything from leaving a rough finish to causing a backlash with over spray.

If you are working outside, say staining or painting a deck, you will need to wash it with a pressure washer to make sure that everything is clean and ready. You will need to let this dry completely before painting or staining, and then wipe it down again to get rid of any dust that might have settled while it was drying. If the surface you are painting has old paint on it already, you will want gently hand sand it and wipe it clean to ensure a good bond with the new paint.

There are some materials that will need to be strained before you even start to spray. This can be done by using a funnel with a filter in it to ensure that there aren’t any large particles that might be in the material that could clog the Paint Zoom system. You should also make sure that you do some practice spraying to test that you have everything set correctly.

This will also give you a chance to make any final adjustments before you begin.
If you are planning on painting a section rather than a whole area, you will want to mask off any part that you aren’t planning on painting.

You should also use a drop cloth to ensure that you aren’t spraying all over your floor. Even though the Paint Zoom has a low overspray to it, it still has some overspray that can happen, and preparing the places you don’t want sprayed is just as important.
